  • How can you do both Prawnie?
  • Can I add my name to runners list please. Not sure how to add it on so having to do just this post. Thanks.
  • How have I only just seen this!?

    I've gone back a few pages and got the latest (I hope) list and added my name and Speed.G to it.  I completely missed the station last time I ran, I think things start going squiffy in the head after mile 17 image

  • Blimey!  Late rush of people image

    Although we're fairly obvious, I can see how people are in a complete head fog by 17 miles and the RW people just blend in with all the other support groups.  Only because I had stood on the other side of the fence so often did I know where to look last year.

    Welcome aboard image

  • I missed it last year too, but found it no probs the two previous years. How odd! Perhaps it was in a bermuda triangle style warp.
  • Hellooooooo!!!! Right - I believe that the good Brother BH is due to be out one evening this week which means I'll actually be able to get on the PC! Once that minor miracle occurs I shall be sorting the groups and starting the group threads off image
  • Seems like I've been forgotten. I'm running too!!

    Sorted!!

  • Foxy Lady, my running club are in charge of marshaling the blue start so I'll put a marshal bib on wander around a bit to tell people where to go and them jump into my pen at the last minute.  It's great fun and stops me thinking about the run and getting nervous.
  • Ah, that's a good plan Prawnie. Multi-tasking and the bib will keep you warm!
  • yeah that and the free tea. image
  • SBH - you may have another supporter soon... I've been sent for a bone scan as the physio thinks I have stress fracture in my right shin.

    image after all the training

    image for the fun of Mile 17!!
  • i'm hoping this year we will join u all

    last year we parked at Vauxhall and walked to mile 13.5  and stayed at fetchpoint,

    so, this time i'm going to have a change, i've asked the Azda manager and explwined my situation and they are hopeful of helping us

    i'm good at yanting abuse at passing runners image  

  • Would be good to see you there Mick'n'Phil

    tell asda we will all be in buying bananas and lager and suchlike

  • Hello Mike

    how are u bud

    keep well dear friend

  • I'm running Brighton the week before supporting too, looking forward to being off the wagon this year! Who has ordered some decent weather, just a sun spot over mile 17 so our runners don't melt out there.

  • Right, I did have my name down with the VLM people to help out with the 'official' volunteers, but as they don't seem all that interested in my services, stuff 'em, I'll join the fun lot instead. Assuming my legs don't fall off in Paris the week before, can someone add me to the supporters list?
  • Hi All

    Sorry to hear your news Becks. Hope you recover soon. Mind you im sure supporting will be lots of fun! Im looking forward to joing you all hopefully next year, as a good friend of mine has also had to withdraw from this years marathon and is running it next year.

    So so looking foward to this now and meeting you all!! you will probably have to give me a boot up the backside to get me going again image 

    Kate I hope you do have a lovely sun spot at mile 17.

    As this is first marathon - I have been following a Hal Higdon plan I have two long runs left a 19miler this weekend and a 20miler on 31st March. Is it worth doing a little more or should I just stick to the distance?

  • Be good to see you again, RR - good luck at Paris image

  • Claire, there is no need to do any more than 20 miles in training.  I've done 5 marathons now and never done a training run longer than 20 miles, and often I don't get above 16 miles.

    Looking forward to meeting all the new faces that have signed up.

  • Thanks SuperCaz I will stick to the distances on the plan.
  • Hey not long to go!! Sorry I've not been around much but will start logging in more once the group threads are up image
  • Claire

    First marathon - or first London?

    if its ure first marathon full stop

    u need to consider not burning out and taper

    arriving fresh - that does not mean no running at all, it simply means ease of the distance

    u dont want any injuries - and u dont want to be tired, heavy legged, or exhausted -

    now, people, you can trust me on this or not,

    20 miles in training still eaves 6 miles unknown territory, and its all on the day

    i speak as an " Old Hand "

    Was that a nag at me madam?! image Lol - I'm not hopeful of getting the lists done befor the weekend now so will take the laptop home from work and hopefully do them on Sunday (whilst recovering from the rugby all day on Saturday - I am unable to watch it without feeling the need to raise a glass - or ten!!!)

     So - any more for any more, keep 'em coming!

    Hello, I'm a bit late arriving but please can I be added to the runner's list image it was great last year and gave me something to look forward to when I found things tough at 15 miles or so image

    I can't copy the list on my phone.
  • @Pottermiss...Done!
