Last 5m last night (in the rain which was surprisingly refreshing) so that's all done now.
Just the small matter of packing and getting up at 3am on Saturday to get to the airport.

Good luck everyone and enjoy the weekend.

WP - I emailed you yesterday - you'll probably get it next week !!

Just enjoying my pasta and chicken salad - and looking foward to some rice pud this afternoon- has anyone else tried those little Muller rice puds - warmed in the microwave they're actually really nice - plus low in fat and great for carbs!
Hope carbo loading is going well for all the full marathoners!

Have a fab weekend everyone and a great race ( even Cheeky Spider!) - sounds like the weather is in our favour - bring it on !!

Good luck everyone - and WP, you may not see me in the crowds but I'll be there cheering you on.
