Seems irrelevant to say well done to J8/ FOAR and BB given what has happened, but congratulations anyway.  I can't comprehend anyone's motivation for doing such a thing in any circumstance, especially so when the casualties were guaranteed to be wives, husbands and children.

Glad all the Blistas are ok. This is just horrible.

Really glad to hear everyone here is okay after Boston. Terrible tragedy. Matt at the Stockport Express has been in touch to ask if J8, FOAR and BB woulf like to comment on what happened and your experiences. Entirely up to you - his no is 0161 211 2947 if you'd like to get in touch, thanks.

I spoke to Steve today and posted his thoughts here bit.ly/YQYrGc

The weather for VLM looks perfect at the minute. There's even an easterly breeze! 

16/04/2013 at 22:08
GBM - please go and touch some wood (ahem). I have deliberately avoided mentioning the weather to avoid jinxing it.
16/04/2013 at 22:30

PPP--Sorry! I will take full responsibility if it is anything but perfect!

Back home in one piece which is the main thing

Boston has to be one of the friendliest places I have ever visited, the locals love you to bits, they are very knowledgable about the race they understand how difficult it is to get a place.

No point in telling you about the actual race other than its a fantastic course with the best support I've ever seen and I will defiantly be back for another go.

BB thanks for showing us your old neighbourhood and big thanks to Foxy

VLM runners enjoy and have a fantastic race

My works mobile has been inundated with messages from BBC Wales to breakfast telly, I deleted them all but got stuck with someone from the MEN told them I didn't have a story but they still wanted a word and some pictures.

Good to have you back Steve

17/04/2013 at 17:32

very laid back Jonah, I am sure you have a story if only how you keep such a metronome pace and finding a good bar at the end. Maybe in a few weeks the horror story will be easier to tell

17/04/2013 at 19:50

J8/Foxy - Glad you are back safely

Anyone care to predict their time for Sunday? Be interested to see what people are hoping for, or shall I predict it for you?

JMC-- Even though my training has been stop/start all year AND i haven't trained anyway near as much as i did for Amsterdam AND i've only had a couple of decent long runs (that's enough excuses for now!) i'm going to try for another sub 3. Six weeks ago i was definitely just going to treat it as a decent long run but i've had six good weeks of training and i've been surprised how much my running seems to have improved over that period. It could all go tits up but there is no harm in trying! 

18/04/2013 at 12:13
JMC - sub 3
18/04/2013 at 12:41

PPP--Are you planning to run it backwards? The weather is still looking perfect!

GBM - thats the spirit. None of this pansying around to run an even paced race. Looking forward to it all going pear shaped at mile 23.

PPP - is that per km? More like 2:40!

Easy 8miles for me tonight from track if anyone interested.

18/04/2013 at 14:48

JMC - goes pear shaped about mile 17 I seem to remember for some who take the womble route. (Who gets it?)

18/04/2013 at 15:09

Good to see everyone safely back from Boston.

JMC - 6.15 m/m for 23m then 9.15mm last 3.

GBM/FOAR - Do you want one of those silly white suits for the start?

18/04/2013 at 15:22

TST - I get it - you mean the route that goes via Bulgaria, Tomsk and Tobermory?
