2008 is over, who's up for doing it all again?
I'm impressed with how many people aren't feeling too sore or stiff this morning ... I feel like I've been beaten up! .
I thought I'd feel better as well, as my friend and I seemed to have walked from one end of Shields to the other yesterday in our mammoth quest to get home.

lol shielsey, didnt know where you were going with the banana peel story at first
I will definitely be back next year. Ran it last year for my running club but put too much pressure on myself to run a good time...this year was for charity and I ran with my father in law and had great fun, came in at 1hr 56.
Not aching too much today as I didn't really get a chance to step into a decent pace yesterday!

A couple of people have mentioned the emotional impact of Abide With Me. Couldn't agree more. They were playing it as I arrived to watch the start and I think it was then that I decided to do the run again next year if possible. The music together with the sight of all the tens of thousands of runners gathering there in the sunshine was pretty overwhelming.
Graham, I know what you mean ... on my first GNR they played it and I wasn't expecting it and the impact of it really hit me and made me choke up - I'd love to know which version of it they use, as it's lovely.
