Time for the 2014 thread?

Anyone knows what happens with our expected finsih times and t shirt size etc?  These things are on the form if you enter now but we were not asked when we early entered on Friday?! Confused.Com!!

Found it and registerd!

Tillstar - I was told at the Expo that I'd receive an e-mail in due course which would direct me to my application to add finishing time etc. They wanted to keep the Expo registration as short and simple as possible.

One and done, still adamant about that

What a fantastic day out, the crowds were amazing at times.  I remember hitting the wall of people just around 13 miles near the pier, that was a goose bumps experience.  

I wrote C'MON TOM on my charity vest and so many people were shouting it, it was a fun day interacting with the crowds and I made sure I tried to acknowledge each person who supported me.

Tempted to come back and better my 5:36 but I am happy with the great memories I have.  I need to change my running style if I am ever going to run long term as I am 'bio-mechanically inefficient'.  

When you are slow like me, the crowds and participants thin out a bit and it was hard at times.  The strangest bit was running along the promenade from 23 miles, among people going about their everyday lives in the beach huts and cafes.  That was surreal.

The grandstand finish was awesome and the sun had been out for a while by then so happy days all round.

Well done everyone!

Just booked it. Anyone else feel nervous already?! This is my first. Looking forward to training! Hoping the step up from half to full won't be too painful...

louise d your post made me laugh out loud......

hope you all stay with us on the 2014 thread it certainly stops my family getting bored listening to me harp on with running questions etc 

lets hope those responsible for the Boston bombs get brought to justice quickly....

Has anyone heard from MarkD and Curly since the race - they were both doing AMAZINGLY in their training and pre marathon races so would love to hear how they got on. Maybe they're still celebrating!

And who is going to start the Brighton Marathon 2014 thread.....?!

16/04/2013 at 14:36

Accoring to the App Mark D did it in 3.31.25 I dont know about Curly as I didnt know her number was only wondering this morning how she got on?!  Come on TOBY3 I think you should be the one to start the new thread

Just signed up for Brighton again. But qualified for London / Boston. It is a real dilemma as I love the brighton marathon, but seems a shame to loose the chance to run London or Boston.

Could run both Brighton and London i guess!

16/04/2013 at 14:40
Curly was one of the top ladies and came in around 3.25. Mark D around 3.17 I think
16/04/2013 at 14:42

Paul - I found out yesterday that I got a GFA time for London (not quite sure how that happened!) so if I do get the place, I am going to run both. Brighton will be my 'A' race to go for a PB, whereas I will treat London as a 'fun run' and just do it for the experience etc.

It's definitely possible to do both.

At 37 Barbie you only needed to break 3.45.
