Oh come on!  I spent half of yesterday's run deciding whether to wear white or red socks for the London Marathon. These things are important.

David.....as i have said my hardest marathon was having to walk/ crawl most of the last 26 miles of a race in about 11 hours.............it was much harder than the time I ran under 4 hours which was a miracle PB for me..........

can't you just respect all the runners out there for doing it and having a go whatever their times.......without any knowledge of their background, size , self confidence or history.then it can be more amazing for one person to do a 7 hour marathon than for someone else to do a 3 hour marathon as a training run.........

setting up a thread to bring the attention of the forums to someone or a group of peoples attempts  is not nice.,..........they post on a thread where they feel safe and where they can get support.........you ridiculing from afar and trying to find like minded to ridicule is not nice.......

if they had started a thread look at me aren't I amazing then fair ahead go in and rip them apart of you want.....but they haven't they have quietly posted with like minded people.

naming and abusing people on here like that is beneath your usual humour

Thats only because your tactic is to run like the clappers at the start and catch up to Mo knowing you'll be on TV.

Oh great, now Seren goes and makes me feel guilty ..........great that will be fun emotion to deal with on the treadmill tonight

Can't you let me just have a little fun? In my defense I didnt bring Snow Maiden into the topic

I must admit I always colour match my race kit. Need to look good for the photos. Oh, and not to forget the full make up
21/03/2013 at 16:34

^^Oh, and what Seren said as well.

When you are on the finish line, waiting for DF3 to finally arrive, can you make sure he doesn't have his number covered up this time with his cardigan. We would like some decent photo's this time

and make sure they have a flash on the camera: it gets dark around 7

Also-ran sure no problem. ( unless I fall asleep waiting for him to finally finish)

Hopefully weather will be ok and no jackets needed so pics shouldn't be a problem

11 hours to do a marathon must be very hard. I have to say that I couldn't do it.

Well, as an avid reader, and occasional contributor to the forementioned thread, I must protest

It may seem mundane, strange or ridiculous to brilliant experienced runners, but to someone who is going to run their first marathon, it has some useful support and information. And I like, now that I am 'one of them', to hear about how their training is going.

By the way, what should I wear to coordinate with the colour green?

Hi Kathy

For a green number I would wear a white shirt. Will also help to stay cool in case it gets hot

Ooh, get a nice pair of Saucony Fastwitch!

To be fair this thread was started as "it's a very funny Thread" ....................a..................certain person.............started to make it..................a pissing contest....................about how fast they run...............

I don't think a forum where people mock other threads is big or clever, and sets a dangerous precedent. Except if it's that tosser Yifter, in which case, crack on.
