No race pack for me yesterday (wonder if the dog ate it?)

Ah, I need a pacer - couldn't catch the minute and a half I lost in the first half of Bristol.

1146.  Came yesterday.  First time I've run this one on the third time of entry.  And I have to keep my fingers crossed this time.  There's always some little niggle decides to become an op...

Pacers  from 1.30 to get you round so should find one to suit

1.30 will be the one I'm looking for.  If I can't do it here, I'm going to have to run Torfaen!  (But that's cheating slightly...)

Ooh lordy-I did 2:09 last year-my first HM-only decided to enter 4 weeks ago this year-done a couple of 12 milers but not confident! - Any last minute advice?

Nothing for me either.  Kind of hoping the dog has eaten it now

Sorry about VLM. Looks like another year before you can update your posing pic!
You could always run Cardiff twice, though I remember you passing me in Pontcanna the last time it was a Marathon and a half,and you didn't look too happy!

He never looks happy Spike.  Its just the way he is
02/10/2009 at 14:19

I'm still waiting on my Cardiff pack and my VLM rejection (probably) - it's my first year of entering the London marathon and will be my first ever marathon...if I get in!

Hope everyone's training is going ok - I managed to pick up a chest infection so have been a bit set back by that, but running again normally now....well as normally as I can, which is still fairly duck-like!

Rio - I like a challenge but not sure about accepting mission impossible lol.
Tis true Spike, Cardiff mara was not my best lol.
Cato - better being sick now than on race day, some gentle training now & you'll be fine.

Hi guys, I'll be pacing the 1.40 group while listening to Spike making up some good sentences. Got my VLM rejection today but my son was accepted. Off to Loch Ness for a wee jaunt round the water. Train well, back soon.
