Didn't get in to VLM .Jacket is miles too big - I feel like  a cloud.

Got to get sub 2:30 this weekend at Royal Parks Half.  Got a PB last year at 2:23:49 so I know I am capable of doing it.

Awe thanks Vixx.  I shall be thinking of your confidence in me and that will drive me on

Just worked out that I need to be on a coach at just after 6.30am to get to London tomorrow.  Race starts at 9.30 in Hyde Park, and the blooming coach is diverting because of it !!  Hopefully I can still get off right beside the park but around the next corner but it's an enormous park and I always get lost trying to cross it ! !  I may just get the tube to the other side  and save my little legs.  Brakes Food and Fitness Festival at the finish  . Lots of freebies as well as lush things to buy.  Does anyone know what an M&S Percy Pig station is ?? Is it sweeties??

It is indeed RLTW - pink sweeties that are pig shaped!

Good luck for the race

HI all,

Not long back from London. Having to wait for the water to heat up before I can get in the bath for a soak .

Percy Pig were very tasty but just a little large for a whole one without choking!   Lots of dead ones on the roads (and on the soles of my shoes!)  Went well. Managed to finish in 02:26:38 which is slower than last year but still a season's PB  (and a sub 2:30! ! ) so I'm not complaining.  Will probably write a longer report on GNR 2011 - later!  Nice medal made from 100% sustainable wood in the shapeof a sycamore leaf. Makes a nice change. Lots of food, well it was a food festival too!  Lots of freebies.
