Thanks to GillyMac for pointing me in this direction. Apologies for being a pain but I hope I'm not too late to join as a runner.
If ok, I can post my details and hopefully a pic later. (I'm at work at the mo obsessing about marathon stuff on the interent so don't have my number etc with me.)
I'm also up at the expo Friday with my OH so let me know if I can be of an help.

Hello!!!! So exciting to have a team number
Forum name: Nik40Name: NikkyRace number: 11044Time to mile 17: around 12.30(ish!!)Wearing: Everyman vest - name across frontSpecial needs: just a couple of jelly babies and encouragement / abuse - anything really!!
Thanks so so much!!
Good morning all!
I've finally remembered to check out my race number... It is 3413
What day/time is everyone getting to the Expo for? I get into London Saturday lunch, so I should get over there for about 2ish.
Let us know is there are any good freebies to be had!
Then again they will have ran out by the time I turn up
Depending how the OH gets on with the kids I may check out some of the oversea's marathons - may be able to convince missus of a weekend break
Morning everybody. Hope we are all well today.
Gilly1709, nope not too late, we have plenty of room on this thread. Just leave your details when you get a chance. Hehe I remember the obsessing and constant checking of weather, and if someone so much as sneezed in the near vicinity!!
Mattoo, ooh another Brighton runner, what was the third mara? Will you be in a Phab vest on Sunday? I ran for Phab in 2007.
Morning team 7!!!!!!!!
May admit to having bought another bottle of anti-bac gel today having left mine at home
Weather still 'partly cloudy' now saying 16 degress, was 14 (not that I am watching!)
What time do you recommend to get to the start for?
Also is the course dead flat? Or is there any sneaky inclines along the way?
<pops in to wave at the neighbours>
It's in the magazine you got with the registration cert thingy Trev. It depens what your number is
Been on a management course all day so been getting the shakes due to not having access to a computer and being able to check the weather for Sunday. I know, I know, don't worry about what you can't change! but I still like to know what it's going to be like.
18 degrees now and sunny. Still ok I guess.
Gillmac - thanks will post my details tonight.
Off for a lovely gentle 5 miler this evening then probably back on the computer to harrass Michael Fish.
(I'm not that obsessed really just rather excited about my first London)
Right back home now and have got my details.
Forum Name: Gilly1709
Real name: Simon
Race number: 7854
Estimated time to mile 17: Plan A - 1hr 54
What I'll be wearing
Hopefully I'll have my name somewhere on the front. I'll also look like a bit of a twit as I'll have knee length white compression socks on (helps with the shin splints - honest)
Special needs: I'd love to say beer but I think i'll have to save that for the finish so just a cheer and maybe an orange or gel.
Just seen Ex-Pat Scot's time. With a bit of luck i'll be hanging on for dear life to him
SBH no muffin this year despite your sterling work in recognising me last year is just I am a proper runner now and have a gel belt....
Looking forward to seeing you all though, loads like.
