Dannirr - got to agree 100% with Goldie. I hope you're feeling better and we see you at Corcoran's.
But how did you do?
Well done Kaz1

Great to hear everyone's times and experiences. What time are ppl heading to cotcorans?
I'm just convincing my legs that they want to walk again and will be heading there shortly, hopefully with a little stop along the way to get something to eat. Aiming to be there around 5.30-ish but RS and others were heading there a bit earlier I think.
Wow- very well done all. Seems like a lot of PBs and a lot of great times.
Fanette and I are both pleased. We didn't train as much as we would have liked, so our goals were to finish, but she wanted to be around 5h and I wanted to be around 4h. She clocked in at 5:07 (she's delighted for her first marathon) and I came somewhere between 3:58 and 4:02. My Garmin died at mile 23, so I can only estimate until the results are posted.
I'd like to say a special thanks to Tricky Dicky, ATM, and the others who organized getting together. You guys really made my day. It was such a boost knowing that among all the supporters there, I had an easy-to-find flag with people to cheer me on. It really helped. Thank you. We're cleaning up but hope to be at Concorans by 7pm.

I'm alive, just. Well done to everyone, amazing running today, PBs, GFAs and a fantastic support. Yer Maj - you rock girl! Kaz and RR, so chuffed for you. TD - thank you for waving that huge flag, I nearly burst into tears when I saw it, and DLR - a massive thank you for running (hobbling) me in, I was in tears at that stage. I really couldn't have crossed the line without you.
No idea what time I got, can't get the results on the website ... or maybe my chip didn't work, which happened to me and to friends before.
On my way back to Paris, I need a drink, save some for me.
Never again ...

Can't get time up on website. Think it's 4.28. Went to corcorans had three pints. Left message for yer maj with waitress.
They seem to be online now. Try searching with the 1st name, it is the only way it works for me.
3:46:21. Decided to go long sleeve base layer and tshirt. Freezing at the start, way to hot from K26 onwards, basically after the big tunnel I stopped and 'changed'. Missing a PB by 90s, that's a huge chunk of that. Happy with the effort, I wouldn't rate Paris as a fast race. Fast start as space available, but running into previous waves once hitting the narrow roads doesn't help.
haven't contributed much to the thread, but it has been invaluable - not a good run, I trained really well but hadn't shook off a cold and calf playing up meant I had to ramp right down very early to end up finishing at all. Maybe an inking into how Dannir felt, at least I knew I was recovering from a cold so could make adjustments.. Just nipped in under 5 hours for my first one. Plenty of room for improvement. Well done to everyone.
