I think this mainly because I am a Londoner* and want to run the marathon (again). And i'm too shit to get a GFA place. I think I have a valid argument.
Us people who regularly run along the embankment and up round Buckingham palace (perhaps imagining we're at the finish line, with the crowds roaring, coming in second or third....or whatever) should have priority over the rest of youse.
Stuff you lot. There IS only one marathon. And no civilised life outside the M25
*by Londoner, I mean half Austrian/half Yorkshire lass who now lives in Zone 2.
