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!
PPP--Sorry! I will take full responsibility if it is anything but perfect!
Good to have you back Steve
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
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!
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.
JMC - goes pear shaped about mile 17 I seem to remember for some who take the womble route. (Who gets it?)
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?
TST - I get it - you mean the route that goes via Bulgaria, Tomsk and Tobermory?
