I have sent off my entry form for the FLM and I'm sitting in my office thinking what have I done!?!

Don't get me wrong, I want to do it, but at the same time I'm thinking what a complete idiot I must be, wanting to run around London when there's a PERFECTLY GOOD PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM (?)

Which one's that then? Last time I was there, that wasn't what I would have said.

Nah, best way to see a city is on yer feet!

And probably the fastest too: it takes me an hour-and-ten to run from White City where I work, home to Camberwell. It takes an hour-and-a-half by tube & bus.

Good luck with your entry, Jon.

I'd argue about there being a good public transport system in SE London on Sunday mornings. Jon, just think of y'self as a British eccentric.

Yep, transport sarf of the River is pants.

Know what you mean Jon. I'll be dissapointed if I don't get in and doing what you did in the Darkside room if I do

Jon - idiot
18/10/2002 at 13:13
Thanks Si.. Knew you'd have something nice to say!!!
18/10/2002 at 13:15
If it makes it any better, I'm an idiot in this respect too
(see, I can be nice)

Ta Simon!

T&TM: The tube system in saff is quite good, especially my trusty Northern Line! (When they can be arsed to work and not arguing about wanting £90,000 per annum!!!)

Hear hear!

I'm is Sarf-east London, in the transport black hole that is Camberwll. No Tube here for me - boooo!

Still, there's some okay running to be had round these here parts, so mustn't really grumble...

Slightly off topic but it's Friday - if you want to moan or have a laugh about the tube check out my website goingunderground.net.

Otherwise I'm better known in the London Marathon Forum for the site below - I try to use a similar tone for writing about getting into the marathon as I when writing about the tube. Acutally they are similar in their own way - confusing, difficult to get on top of and slightly Victorian ;-)

Those who get into the race, run;
those who don't, come and spectate!
18/10/2002 at 23:35

Good luck Jon ! Hope you make it in !

And c'mon Benz - come along and join the fun regardless. The atmosphere is out of this world even just spectating (which can be pretty demanding itself !)

I would be gutted to watch in real life, having been rejected x3
At least I can get buglered at home
