     Me on the right 247 and the view on the way back in! Ben Nevis! only photos to be found! thought you'd get a chuckle before you all race tomorrow! good luck all!

  • Lochaber looks like a suffer-fest. Which reminds me, I almost thought about doing the Snowdon mara once. Now, I dream of half marathon completion. Must book that physio.

    Did a sh!t load of biking today, to top up from yesterday's. It seems that biking and swimbling aren't affected by a ham problem.

    Anyway. I'm totally pissed off that I can't be with you.
    If anyone who posted on the previous page list goes sub 3 I'll chip a fiver into their charity fund if they have one. (Seeing as I can’t buy you a beer).
    But you'd better be bloody worth it. I’m Lancastrian, and I don’t part from my money easily.I see that one or two of you are cheaters, and should be sub 3 fredders, but I’ll allow the disadvantage of grey hair to sway my opinion.

    CC2 Speedy ……***no pressure then***
    Marrows, you've not declared a prediction. But on your other matter, just put the safety pins thought the nips and pretend it's 1978.

    All the best to the VLM crew. Looks like it's going to be sunny, but hopefully not too hot. Getting up early to grab the TV remote before the kids start watching their usual Sunday morning drivel...  This should be amazing!

    Good luck to all racing today and my fellow VLM's. Lets leave it all on the roads of London.

    Good luck Dodds.

    Wow, this tracking is amazing. I've now got you all lined up at your various starting points!

  • GerardMGerardM ✭✭✭

    Gul - Snap re the tracking, although my five year old would watch a goldfish race! Heading out soon for a 12k run. By the time I get back the women's race will be starting!

    Dodds - Good luck!

  •  lit and speedy are going for it! this is great! you don't get this in lochaber! lol pen, stopwatch and a pad i think! go guys!!!

  • MennaniaMennania ✭✭✭

    There will be several very pleased threadsters today. Some truly amazing times being posted!!

  • that was great watching!! well done everyone! some amazing times there by Speedy and Lit especially! sub 3 for both! great effort!

  • Just a quick one: got to halfway and wasn't on pace and with the recent injury woes decided it wasn't going to benefit anyone by pushing on so dropped out at Tower Bridge. I beat Mo to the finish with the help of a tube.

  • SlokeyJoeSlokeyJoe ✭✭✭

    Sorry to hear that PMJ. Hope you recover quickly and can get into a fallback race soon.

  • You were going really well PMJ! you were on 2:49 pace till you stopped! great effort and you'll get that chance again in a few months time! well done on beating Mo, even if it was slightly unorthodox.

    That's tough luck Philip, but I'm sure you will bounce back!

    Looking forward to the reports when they come in.


  • was just checking clubmates results and thought I'd have a quick look at fast women .......... Awesome run Speedy! Many congrats

    A quick look at fast women eh Jezza? image

  • BirchBirch ✭✭✭

    Speedy - yes she is !  image

  • moofmoof ✭✭✭

    Pretty much perfect pacing.

  • GerardMGerardM ✭✭✭

    Super times for Speedy and Lit. I hope they are soaking up the glory in the sunshine.

    A friend of mine ran only his second marathon today and ran 2:50 with a 1:26/1:24 split, he must have overtaken alot of runners with that -ve split.

    Mo found out how truly brutal the distance was today, but least he didn't sound too deflated, he will run much quicker than that I am sure. Jonesey's record is still in tact and he looked great on the tv, bet he could still belt out a decent time.

  • marrowsmarrows ✭✭✭
    Lit smashed it too!
  • JoolskaJoolska ✭✭✭

    Congratulations to Speedy and Lit on their well deserved sub-3s.

    Sensible decision, PMJ.  

    Will cyber-stalk others later, but had better do my own run soon...

    Quick post from coach on way home. 2.44.50 for me. Ecstatic with time as so nearly fell apart at the end with legs almost cramping.
  • moofmoof ✭✭✭

    Brilliant time Martin, congratulations.
