It will be OK as there will be a new one the day after this years race....

The Brighton Marathon facebook page is slightly better. Not so many posts and has a bit more relevance. Toby3 has posted on there a few times under his real name.

That is sadly true Tommy

David..mock all you want......you haven't done one.....

and you well underachieved in your half marathon.........time is immaterial.......for your age, size and level of fitness........you bombed out in the half

Think you should beat Alison. She gave us all the gory details of why her last 16 miler went so wrong.

They're off to see the daughter Snowmaiden this weekend who spent years at Leicester University studying computer game programming. She now works at Sainsburys.

OK, here's a suggestion -  if you want to laugh at, belittle or otherwise mock other runners perhaps you should at least have the balls to do it on the threads they post on??

That's not what I'd call it. Tact is keeping your opinions to yourself - makes you a much bigger person.

21/03/2013 at 15:38
That's not tact that's just keeping quiet. Tact is saying something without hurting them. Like doing it on another thread.

OK I'll give you that but why say anything at all? Does mocking other people make you feel better about yourself?

It's not remotely admirable in grown men. Trust me.

There are times when I want to be admired and times when I just want to have a bitch..........meowwww!!

Everything clashes with Pirate kit !

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

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.
