fb/gmike/karl - well done - i did  a light aerobics class on monday last week and a gentle 5 mile run on wednesday and by sunday was wishing i was lining up with you.

i have only done 2 marathons and am now hooked, though even as i spent a very, very long time considering entering my first (Dublin 2009) I always said I wouldn't fancy London because of the ballott and the crowds. That was before i got a GFA time at Brighton and now feel I should do it for the experience.

I dont expect to enjoy London the same as both Dublin and Brighton, which I loved and were great for spectators, but at least i will be able to say I have done it. I  do plan to run both Dublin and Brighton again.

2bT: I sent print off from results page and copy of downloaded certificate. Keeping my fingers crossed

Brighton Rocks - I was very tetchy yesterday, there must have been something in the air!

went for a short run last night that stretched to 9 miles once I 'found' my legs and feel totally back to normal.  Now when is that next race?????????????????

Hi all.

Expect everyone's getting the e-mail dropping through their in-boxes about next year's race. (April 10th)

Typical that entry opens on monday May 10th as I don't get back from hols in Vegas till monday lunchtime so by the time I get online, it will probably be full !!!

i am going to have a year off from a marathon - based on the comments here think i will avoid london as the pack of runners in my local 10k (2500 people in our little place!) really annoyed me. didnt get above 11 min mile pace for a 10k until over 1.5 miles and ran further due to all the people i had to run around!!

 Did my first run today since the race - only 3 miles but glad i did it, just wish the legs were working a bit better - guessing that will come back

got my first 10 k race (hilly) on 23rd May - not sure if this will boost or sap my confidence. will try and find a fast flat 10k to boost myself. also got a half on 18th july which is flat. Desparate to get back to some speed....forgotten what its like to run fast (well for me !!)

will give marathon running a year off next year

Hi All

I have just noticed a couple of the items that were in the goody bag and wondered if anyone knows what they are for. 

1. Evening Primrose firming mask

2. Vitamin E nourishing night cream

I have worked out what to do with the foot treatment cream.

Haha ORR the firming mask will help prevent or fix runner's jowls The night cream helps your skin cells renew overnight

Mine seem to have disappeared, I think Womble raided my goody bag.

I have just received copies of the official photos - they appear to have been sent from NZ, which seems quite extreme!

Runners jowls - fact or fiction? I'm convinced they exist but people keep telling me I'm paranoid.

I hope that everyone has received their online questionaire to fill in. There is a section for our thoughts on the good/bad bits and I did add a comment that they need barriers over the last 2-3 miles to keep runners and spectators apart!! Let's hope that someone takes notice.
