Eh up folks, thought I'd pop along and show some sort of interest here!
This'll be my 9th London, so maybe I'll know what I'm doing?!
hope to get close to 4 hours, possibly even the better side of it, so will be at 17 at around 2 hrs 30...
Hey everyone. This is my first marathon ever too. After being injured for 6 weeks between February to middle of March I am going to be slower than I wanted, but very excited/terrified!
I am hoping for a 4:40 marathon, so should be hitting mile 17 at about 3 hours.
I definitely need all the cheers and support I can get. I was supposed to be running with my identical twin sister who is too injured to run so she will either have to drop out or walk most of it, so I will be running alone .
I will be wearing a pink and white Against Breast Cancer charity vest with 'CARLY' on the front and 'TWIN 1' on the back written in black.
If you see me then please please shout encouragement and general abuse about not giving up at me!
I look forward to seeing you at mile 17.
P.S Adam I will look out for you, what time are you aiming for?
Good luck everyone!
I'm aiming for sub four hours but who knows! Anything could happen!
I'll keep an eye out for you too!
Carly, look for Support Group 5.
Thank you! Not sure what I was looking at instead! I'll join support group 5 now!
Hi Sister Bad Habit,
Have just seen the article about your supporters group and wondered if it's too late to join in? This will be my first marathon and I confess to being terrified. The thought of a few friendly faces at mile 17 sounds like bliss! Doesn't matter if I'm too late, appreciate I should have checked it out sooner.
Never too late, Lady
Someone will be along soon to allocate you to a group
Reminder to all runners
We get a bit crosseyed after a while watching millions of runners stream past
so unless you are doing it in a REALLY unusual costume (like that twenty foot high nurse)
YOU need to find US, we will never spot you in the crowd
we are usually here http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Mudchute+DLR+Station,+East+Ferry+Road,+Millwall,+London&hl=en&ll=51.490442,-0.014291&spn=0.000027,0.021136&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=14.902362,43.286133&oq=mudchute&hq=Mudchute+DLR+Station,&hnear=E+Ferry+Rd,+London+E14+3AY,+United+Kingdom&t=m&z=16&layer=c&cbll=51.490341,-0.014229&panoid=3D9abaUQzvMsfpKqtyEd2g&cbp=12,346.91,,0,0
The Frog has just said what I was about to say!
WE CANNOT LOOK OUT FOR YOU - YOU NEED TO LOOK OUT FOR US.
There is not a cat in a firey place's chace of us spotting an individual runner in the thronging masses - Rob in his nurse costume and the Alice in Wonderland crew are the exceptions. Even people dressed as rhinos or superheros are the norm.
Lady 1 why don't you join us in Group 2 whilst Felixia (think that was your name but my brain is fried) pop along and see SuperCaz and B in Group 3.
Those who just want a cheer please just look out for us - we cheer all day and at anyone we give out jelly babies, jaffa cakes and bananas (subject to availability, substitutes may be offered) to anyone whether they're registered with a support Group or not.
We don't do this for money we do it for lurve ...... but you didn't need to know that
