Thankfully there is no pictures of me in bits at mile 25 so thats a relief.

Just seen the picture of Sams big toe, all I can say to that is ...... OOOOOWWWWCCCCHHH

bet that hurt, made me go all a quiver

My wife has just seen the photos and said: how come you never look like you're moving anywhere?"


She's got a point though - at least one foot firmly on the ground in every photo!

Thanks so much Rich - and to everyone else for helpful comments, advice, encouragement etc. I've gone from swearing this would be my last marathon to planning my 2 spring ones!

I can just about see myself on YouTube - I'm just in front of micknphil right at the back of the start (but it's a very dark video - not up to richk kwalitee)

Rich, Many Thanks for the bigger picture and promotion up the page!

Rich - you caught me about 6 photos down from the man running with the cyclist in the 18 mile pages - probably the moment it all started to go horribly wrong....

Legs still feeling tired - Marlow 1/2 is going to be tough this weekend.

You're welcome :)

Don't know how I missed you, Hob Nob, but you're restored to your rightful place now :)

You're right, Marlow will be hard!! Good luck with it . . although as Mick says, you're only running to the half way mark this time :)

RichK - the girls in my WRN group wanted me to say a big thank you for the great photos you took of them - especially the 5 girls doing their first marathon were chuffed to have so many photos of the occasion.

They're all talking about the next marathon to do now....

Hello everyone.
Not tapped into this thread for a while.
Hope everyones recovered!
Were any photos taken of the race and if so where can they be accessed??

Don't know about any 'official' photos - I can't find any.

But then, with the dozens taken by RichK, I don't really think any official pics are necessary.

Shades - I'm sure they would all appreciate a Weekend in the Lake District towards the end of May

thanks for your help.

CumbriAndy - yes, quite fancy that race myself but am hoping to take the girls to Copenhagen that weekend- we'll see..
06/11/2006 at 15:42
Hmmmm - Copenhagen or Windermere? I can see the dilemma
06/11/2006 at 17:55
I hope Windermere is on next year, will do it then

Good call, Nick L, I hadn't seen the thread, and there's quite a good one on there of me....

While on the subject of photos.

Did I read somewhere that we may well be sent official results and, if they caught us, a finish line photo? If so, does anybody know how long after the race these are generally distributed?

Or did I imagine the whole thing?

Cumbri Andy

Last year we got printed official results and a photo send to us.

C Andy

No. mate..

You imagined the whole thing

There was no Abingdon marathon, no pb's no nothing, it was all a bad dream


They'll send them to you , you'll see !!

CumbriAndy - I was talking to one of the organisers last week and he gave the impression that they might be being sent out this week. But mine ain't arrived yet - possibly the organisers also have post-marathon lurgies!
