Wow, what a hot one, im not in as bad a state as last year. Still a little sore though.
Well done all,

So, who's up for it again.

Comments

  • Against my better judgement...count me in!
  • On the grounds that they're holding it on my birthday - it would be rude not to!!!

    It'll be my first!!

  • Well I have a PB to beat now, so I guess I have to :O)
  • No chance! Give me a quiet marathon any day, but I might see you at Mudchute.
  • Ahh come on mr w.
    Well done pienapper, me too, only by 4 minutes tho.
  • Sorry, Danno. It was too crowded for me. I like to run at a steady pace and I couldn't with so many people. But, it's a great event and I'm always happy to spend a day cheering on those of you who enjoy it.
  • At 15 miles it was a case of, "I am doing this agin, big time", at between 20-25 I was not so sure, but having finished my first marathon (3:47) I will be back next year (place pending) and if I am not sucessful via the ballot I will find another marathon to run.

    But I thought the whole day was fab, crowds totally fantastic -little too hot for me, but great all the same.
  • Will be great to see you all there 'cos I know that I'm in next year(on 5 rejections)watch em change the rules. WELL DONE ALL YOU DESERVE A MEDAL ( AND A "T SHIRT THAT DOESN'T FIT)
  • I didn't get a place this year, am hoping to next year - any tips? Or is it really just luck luck luck?
  • Didn't get my secondary target of 3:30, (although I did manage to crack my main target of sub 4 hours) so off I go again next year......

    Still, knocked almost 20 minutes off my first Marathon time of 4:11:52(Paris - 2001), so with a bit of luck, and a little bit cooler day next year, 3:30 should be achievable!

    Hopefully see you all next year then....
  • Count me in.

    Fantastic day.
  • I'm in - first marathon yesterday and loved it despite not cracking my 4hr target. Onlyneed to knock off just under 9 mins though which should be achievable with another year's training.
  • CJUK, despite what they say I think finish time counts ( see my thread about predicted finishes) so pick one that is out of the main times, just bend the truth a bit, I really think it will work in your favour. Good luck mate, you will probably need it.
  • For the 1st time ever, I achieved a GFA time on Sunday. But, because it's new to me & I don't fully understand how the system operates, I'm left wondering if my efforts this year will get me a place in FLM '06; because the 2006 race is on 23/04/06 which is more than a calendar year from the '05 FLM.

    Do I need to try for another GFA time or will Sundays time be ok for next year? Does anyone know? I've called FLM to enquire but got reply. Thanks in advance,

    TTT.
  • Actually, it's not wishing your life away (glad I saw this thread it's cheered me up now).

    Yes, ballot or bond - i'm in.
  • EP - Thanks for that info. - a much faster response compared to the FLM peeps too!

    TTT.
  • I'll be there! got a GFA time so am very very pleased.
