I think the race packs problem might be related to the t-shirts maybe they didn't get them all on time.
Right almost done for anouther day so will wish you all good luck now. Have a lovely chilled out saturday drinks lots, eat lots and see you on sunday. Most off all enjoy it.
The weather's looking pretty good really. I'll be wearing a black and red Man Tri vest. I'm also going to break a golden rule and wear new shoes. Well, they're not entirely new, but they've only got about 15 miles in them. I wasn't planning to introduce them properly until after Nottingham, but I've still got a bit of a niggle in my achilles so I'd rather have supportive new cushioned shoes than wear a pair that are nearing the end of their days. I've been running in the same model for years though so hopefully they'll be ok.
Gymfreak, 2 in 2 days, that's pretty hardcore - what are you doing tomorrow? Good luck.
Just one more day to get through. Best wishes all.

i'm camping at the water sports center.
Yep, just found it
Too late to phone right now. Probably need to find out the tariff.
Thinking about it, robably too late to organise it for this one, but definitely good info for future ref
Vixx - one of my colleagues has run the race a few times and every time he said he decided to quit halfway! (I`m trying not to think about that as an option). Might run 12-14 with eyes closed!
Wet this morning in Sheff, a few junctions North of Notts. Hope it`s better tomorrow, but not hot. Today I shall mostly be eating and drinking!
I'm not quitting - I'm determined to complete it. I just know it's going to be tight on the cutoff for me.
How is everyone feeling?
Looks ok for tomorrow
That is the onsite linker screwing up!

Calf still playing up and the cack support crew all down south at a festival so going to take it very easy tomorrow thinking 10/11 minute miles for the first half and then see how it feels after we all go over the bridge.Did manage another 15 miler last friday but was limping a far bit after.
Dad had a mini stroke this morning so ended up not going to leeds and going out in a second to get him some grapes so at least not beening working to hard today.
Newbies top tips. the baggage area has different tables in it with each number so don't que by the side of the marque que by the table.
A lot of folks move like sh*t of a shovel at the start line. Don't follow them unless you know you can keep up, you will pass a lot of them going round. It's a school boy error.
Drink plenty of liquids today and take on board some in the morning. If you can get a nice cup of tea/coffee/red bull the caffeine in it will help your muscles and your lungs. Ibuprofen works. Whatever you do don't eat something new today. If your normal diet is chips eat chips. but some lovely carb loading wouldn't go a miss. Personally I'm going to eat more pasta tonight than a small roman villa.
Enjoy it or I will start singing sea shanties at you lot. I've almost got my voice back after the other week and I'm willing to use it.
blimey its a bit windy here not fancying the run around the water sports centre if its like this. I HATE THE WIND (p.s. camping is 8 quid a night, a bit steep but free showers).

so true, one of the ways I keep myself entertained for the first couple of miles is working out when the ones that have gone of too fast will begin to grind to a holt. cruel but fun
cake - sorry to hear about your dad, hope he makes a full recovery
hopefully see some of ya in the riverbank bar, i'll prob head in their for about 2-2:30 ish
i'm No 10096 yellow pen, wearing vicky park colours (white with blue/terquoise diagonal stripe), have to admit i'm a bit hopeless at spoting people.
Hav a good'un everyone
