Thanks Hild.. seems this forum style still isn't that suitable eh??

Just thinking also that doing it on the top floor of the Hilton might get you into trouble. More especially if it's FROM the top floor of the Hilton!!!

Well done NR. We don't have anywhere as posh as that here. Making a toilet stop on the pier doesn't sound quite as classy!

Well done NR - great fun running through London. I did a Waterloo to Baker St run on Weds night. Didn't know the way, so followed my nose. Past the Houses of Parliament and an MP I'd seen on Question Time, through St James Park and Green Park (had a little stint with the Nike 10k training group), then I ran through Picadilly and Oxford Street - which was interesting. I stuck to the bus lane and didn't have too much of a prob. I was grinning to myself and singing (don't ask me why) Hey Jude. I'm sure there were many people who thought, another one's escaped - and I played up on it. Quite liberating to act like a lunatic! Got to the Globe in no time - but unfortunately after all that running (around in circles) the alcohol didn't agree with me (I got a bit tipsy and lost my bag with my running gear in it!)...

How did you cope with the traffic & the pollution? Me & Oldbones live out in the sticks - four cars is a traffic jam around here. But even so, part of my normal route has no pavement and if you run in the road then you run the risk of looking like the squashed rabbit in the middle. Car drivers are so inconsiderate.

This is a great thread. Celebrating success all the way! I ran nine miles yesterday. My longest run ever. A white van man took the time to throw a tennis ball at me and a car full of women slowed down so they could bark at me. Isn't Essex lovely at this time of the year?

I am, however, now confident that I will complete Windsor, lack of injury permitting. I'm going for less than 2 hours...

Sythree, are you Mrs Oldbones? Nice to meet you (so to speak!)... As for the pollution. Have to say that I did have more than the usual quota of rather unpleasant black stuff omit from nostrils (Londoners will know what I'm talking about) after Weds night... If I did it regularly would have to invest in Michael Jackson style mask, but fortunately don't have to work in the Smoke too often, so it's a rare treat. I'm sure the novelty would soon wear off. Threre's only so much tourist dodging a gal can do. Look forward to meeting you at Windsor Waapster...where's the where to meet at Windsor thread?

As always, Ratbag is his usual entertaining self.
. New runner, you've got me thinking of what hotels we pass on the New york route ! I'm pretty sure we pass the Trump towers !!!

NR - well done on your 15 miler, I don't think I'd have had the nerve to drop into the Dorchester!

Snicks - there's a Windsor thread on the Events forum which includes some discussion on a meeting point but I don't think it's been finalised yet.

George - laughing at the idea of popping into hotels during the NY marathon - maybe we could stop and have a bite to eat as well if it all gets a bit much?

Snicks -Can not believe you ran down polluted Oxford Street!

NR, I know, obsessive compulsive etc... but at least I escaped!!!
