  • I will be frisking everyone for any signs of Marsh1te in their bags.  There will be none of that sort of dirty talk whilst I'm there.  I also have a breath-o-meter which detects the stuff so no sneaking some on your morning toast image
  • I will get the cable ties off K today ... I won't be there very early so can post them to someone who will ... TP/Caz? have small bags and will get JBs and jaffas. May also be able to wrestle oneof K's multitools off him with scissors/knife - apparently they are very useful so youi need about 5different ones!! image
  • Post them to SC if she doesn't mind, it would just be one more thing to try to remember to pack  when I fly down.

    If you'd change "Jelly Baby" for Jaffa Cake - you'd have summed me up correctly!

    image I've just a nice giggle about that. To be fair - when I eat Jelly Babies I normally stuff them into my cheek as i'm going along and let my saliva do the work.... but then I do have the habit of looking like a squirrel with a bunch of nuts in my cheek!
     

  • Hey, no stealing Dave from us! He blong support group 5!
  • image a wanted man tee hee ! , mind  jelly babies for Foxy lady and a jaffa for tickled pink , lol probably would spur me on for the last 9 miles lol
  • @dave - Just knowing that this lot will be in Chando's before me makes me want to run faster.... I need to make sure that there's a beer left for me before they drink the place dry!
  • You are safe from me Emmy, I don't drink beer*.  There may be no wine left though. image

    * An exception to this is immediately post marathon when I downed 2 pints of shandy, did a huge burp and felt loads better.

  • Normally I'm a wine drinker but it's been proven that a beer after a race improves recovery time... all the Germans do it - so if it's good enough for them - it's good enough for me!
  • ahhh class ladies image god knows where Chando's is lol
  • Just off Trafalgar Square Dave.  About a 10 min hobble from the finish.  Can't remember the street names (it's on a corner) but google it.
  • are you running TP ?
  • I'm running (limping) - is it too late to join - hugs required!
  • yes, you can join in - but it will cost a hug image
  • Oh go on then!
  • Article's out on the main page peeps image my guess is we may have a few more runners heading in our direction so just as a heads up....!
