Well if they make it to Bracknell, they may as well head on to Yateley afterwards!

I suppose Leeds would be a little too far out of their way once they've finished working their magic on you guys?

Happy to help with the results.-

It's strange when you find out that the people running near you were actually forumites isn't it.-

Looking at the results, I was in a block of 5 forumites and had no idea!

Thanks for the results. I saw you on the first mile, but you sped off into the distance, I was so impressed! My first mile was a 7.30 min and you left me for dust big time.

(Bows down, "We're not worthy, we're not worthy")


Thank you very much for your post, I've e-mailed a query to you, I very much hope it will be sorted, though given the level of organisation for the weekend, I'm sure it will :-)

LL.- :-)
You GFA'd by a fair bit.- I got my GFA at Stratford this year after 3 attempts.- so it could easily be your turn next.
I'm still so excited and in shock :-) I was trying for an elite time.- but I hadn't managed to tell anyone what I was aiming for without laughing.-

Little Lizard,

I've not received an email from you?

My email address is abingdonmarshals@btinternet.com

I am happy to receive any feedback, good or bad, and it doesn't have to be limited to marshaling either.

I sent a message via the 'contact us' page on the AAC site, then noticed the abingdonmarathon aol address, so re-sent it to there. I dont think I will send it a 3rd time to you - dont want to be a pest!

Only positive comments I could make - where there were 'issues' it related to factors like rude drivers which are beyond your control.

Thanks to you and all your crew!

Thanks Nick,

The abingdon marathon aol address goes to the Race Director, so that will find its way to our post race meeting.

Thanks for your support.

1p- thanks for posting all those results. good stuff.

As for my metronome qualities of predicting 3:20 and getting 3:19:57.. I tell you I have never sprinted and covered 350 metres on the track that fast before and don't intend to again!!

Today I would like to thank the person who invented banisters on stairs. I do not know where I would be without them. Probably still upstairs I guess ;)

24/10/2006 at 13:25
Tick Tock it was someone called Roger Bannister and apparently he used to run quite fast and invented them after breaking soem record or another!

I have just had the most amazing 2 hour leg and back massage - it was lush! Feel heaps better now :-D

Well what a fantastic race. Abingdon once again has really put it's place on the map. Well done organisers and of course all of the marshalls that kept us safe and in spirit. I'm still on a high so sleeping is a little hard at the moment. I came in 3.43.21 as you see 3.59.27 (2005). I was right on par for a 3.30 this time then at 19-20 miles my planter injury took hold. Having already run 7.30 m/m for the first 10 and 8 m/m to 18 I thought everything was going fairly well. At the 20 miles food stop I had to stop completely to down 3 cups of orange and remember the lady checking I was ok Thanks as it was a bit of a reality check.Miles 22 and 23 were an off on affair, as I just wanted to get to the end,Saw Rich taking photos at 24 and as he looked down he shouted Shadwell !! Can I have another picture? I stopped and turned round but he was only joking although I still managed to see the funny side.25 was a blur and coming into the stadium I thought I was on another planet,just 400m to run you're having a laugh !I caught someone up and at 200 m challenged them to a final finish. It certainly helped me forget the pain for a bit. After I stopped I think my whole body shut down. it was a real weird feeling for 20 mins Shaking, tongue tingling legs tingling (What's that about?)and felt completely distant. Luckily I live up the road so after a nice hot bath came round. I couldn't stop smiling from then on! n.b. I must remember to pace myself better next time 8.15 all the way would be better and produce much the same and less demanding early on.Very little stiffness today apart from the foot feeling bruised, so I guess I'll have to get rid of the Planter first before I do any more long runs. What's the earlies we can apply for next year and how do I go about getting a t-shirt? Well done everyone. Mick n phil managed to speak to you as you were going up the slopes to the track at the begining Good time!! Hope I can find a picture with me on in the near future and see what a mess I must have looked!

i don't know you ,

i'm glad your happy and had a good day

i'm way high still, i just can't believe what we've achieved 4.03

I'm still occasionally tearful to be honest

Abingdon Amblers, did us and them selves well proud !!

I can't fault anything at all

Abingdon Marathon 2007

Bring it on

i often think about favourite marathons, and say to myself

i'm going along, and i think , where is every one gone, of course, were at 12 miles whatever, everyone in half has gone into finish

That don't happen at Abo

not easy..easy..easy
