Got a 10k in the morning in Dulwich so won't feel too bad about watching a marathon in the afternoon. The comfy seat & beer approach sounds good but there'll be no kids in my house.

Seat and beer aswell!

Henley Half Marathon? Depends if I don't get drunk on the night before.

Comfy seat, door locked, telephone off the hook.

PB - can't you tie the kids up and gag them?

Going to see A-Ha at Wembley the night before so I'll probably be hungover and starstruck on the sofa having redeveloped my teenage crush..... but will definitely be watching the race - with beer also. No kids yet, ha ha!

I've got the Kingston Running Festival. But what time is it on?

The same as you Pernickity, two "little uns" to contend with aswell. Beer and sofa sound great. I can rest the weary legs from the mornings 15K race.

What time is it on folks?

Coverage starts at 1:30pm.

Anyone see the Superman advert for Paula running Chicago that they showed during the Great North Run coverage?

Cheers Linca. Excellent, I will be home by then. Beers, wine, whatever, maybe some champers (well sparkling wine), cheering Paula on.

PB, thanks for the reminder. I shall definately be having a few cold ones that afternoon (double the normal amount as it's also birthday - well the next day, but i like to start early like Caz !)

By the way PB - good run on sunday (Lewes 10) that's an excellent time for 10m over what sounds like an extremely hard course.

Caz - you could have all 3 - beer, wine and champagne...... and then sleep for the rest of Sunday.. and Monday.

Ill be volunteering at Manchester Marathon so Ill probably miss Paula - damn

Gareth, you make it sound like I drink a lot, hick!! (Actually we all got pretty plastered on the boat trip on Friday night and a good time was had by all, and no casualties overboard either.) Happy Birthday for next Monday. (How old?)

PB, I watched the elite athlete's finish the GNR yesterday and then went out for a run, then watched the rest come in when I got back. I felt good watching it after I'd already been out.

Not having a TV at home I think I'll have to install myself infront of one in the gym for the afternoon!
07/10/2002 at 13:57
Gym in the morning, then home for Paula in the afternoon, along with a beer or two.

Any guesses on race strategy? Could be another go from the gun I reckon, and aim to drop Zdereba in the first few miles.

Having said that, I'd like to see Paula in the GNR again sometime - if Sonia O'Sullivan can do 67 minutes, then Paula must be able to get close to 65!
07/10/2002 at 14:13
I reckon she'll just leg it as fast as possible!
07/10/2002 at 14:16
PB - i watched GNR on the treadmill in the gym, which seemed to work, as i could see everyone else suffering at the same time.!

Caz - friday night sounds good.., although i didn't spot any boats swaying from side to side as i went over Waterloo bridge (not literally) on friday evening.!
and i'll be 30 something-ishh next Monday.

Should be visiting my dad on Paula day so have posponed vist by a week so I can watch the whole race.
Paula ! Paula ! Paula ! Paula !
