I'm aiming to get there for around 9am.

I'll be bringing cake.  CP, you had better run fast if you expect any to be left by the time you finish.

I am sorry but I don't think I will be able to come now K's Dad has been in hospital since Thursday and is very poorly so I need to be with K
Have a great race CP, Schmunks, Screamy and anyone else running and happy supporting too

Yes, hope he's ok B, take care.

I think I will have to head straght home tomorrow myself to see the rellies off (they are down for the playoff final) but I'll give supporters a wave en route if I spot you - don't forget the sunblock, you'll need it!

Great to meet you too Bear, and SC. wine was lovely thanks!
But where WAS everyone else?
27/05/2012 at 17:09
A couple of people (one wearing a pirate buff?) cheered me just towards the end. I didn't get chance to work out who they were tho

Caz here.  Schmunks, it was only a couple of weeks ago when we last met. Have youi forgotten me already?

Bear did turn up - but for some reason thought meet and greet was in St.James' Park so by time got to P point (about 9.20) couldn't see anyone so went to start/finish point and had a great view.  Then as Bear has a great affinity with those behind I walked back along the course to see the final finishers.  The last one in was a young woman accompanied by a marshal and it was lovely to see how encouraging he was.  Was there to cheer her over the line and as I walked passed her in Green Park saw that she had an orthopaedic running shoe on her left foot.  needless to say by time Bear got back to P place yet again no-one ther.  Nevertheless really enjoyed experience and congratulations Schmunkee - it was hot out there!

You must have been near us BBH

27/05/2012 at 18:14

Yes - sorry I missed you.

27/05/2012 at 18:47
Oh, can I make it clear I did not run it. I did not even walk it all. I walked to the first k-marker then crossed over the Embankment, waited until Jr and Dad of Jr passed, then walked the final 1.5k.

Although i was wearing my race number, it was obvious i was not running as I was wearing a dress and flip flops.

Also, i did not wear my chip so i didnt affect any results

We were just wondering why someone was doing the10k in non-running kit when I recognised you!

27/05/2012 at 19:25

I didn't want to risk my injury but still wanted my t-shirt and medal and that seemed the only way to do it
27/05/2012 at 19:25

Schmunkee - saw finishing you but didn't realise it was you - I just admired your style!  Congratulations on doing the best you could .

27/05/2012 at 20:24

Glad you were sensible Schmunks and sorry we missed you BBH.  We did wait at the P until about 12:30 so we must have only just missed you

27/05/2012 at 23:59

Sorry for the no show. Woke several times in the night feeling unwell, then in the morning had a few funny spells. Bit  today. Fine now. Prolly not something you'd want to share.
