Looking at a French website often feels like time travel to me - always 10 years back.  still, I'm sure they have great minitel sites.

DV - A little late but well done on getting as far as you did. Based on the conditions I can't believe you even attempted it and sounds like the right call to stop. fingers crossed for a quick recovery.

Luckily still no snow down in the southwest but was pretty cold over the weekend.

After not getting enough sleep over the weekend I'm yet to get taper madness as feeling too tired! Not many more training runs before the big day, I canny wait.

Thanks for the info ATM and Orbutt. Will get on the RER site and print a load of stuff off so it's (hopefully) idiot-proof for me when we arrive.....!

Kaz - nice to know there's someone else nearby, I was half worrying we'd be a bit 'away from the action'.....!

I'm hoping to get to the Expo on Friday night now, there is no way "himindoors" is going to be standing about with lots of runners for more than 10 minutes.......so fingers crossed the good old French train is on time.

Just done my nice little 5k with the help of a mates dog.....  darn thing would not go away, so I had to run round a farm track as I didn't want to get onto the road with it.  It soon legged it off when it saw another dog, so I did a different run for a change, oh well.  Pastures (smelly muddy ones) new.

By the sound of it, Bedders, you can create your own action...

I've got a cold.  Spiffing.

TJB - you're certainly building up the expectation for Ingrid aren't you? Hope no one is going to say something disappointing in Pasta Papas

 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Tricky - plus she is related to me from my beautiful mum's side so she must be a cracker. I'm just bigging her up for a bit of fun. She has a good sense of humour and she knows all about this frivolity so she might play along!

Beholder or beer holder?

Hi all,

Not been a good few weeks for me for one reason or another. Did manage 20 miles on Saturday morning though which has perked me up slightly.

Is there a handy checklist available anyway? I'm into panicking mode now. I have my medical cert signed off by the doc and my passport, will I need to show anything else at the expo to get my race number?

Hope preparations have gone well for everyone - see you in Paris!

Yes you need your convocation

Spent ages printing off 2 copies of everything (and of course there are 2 of us.....)  had to go buy a new ink cartridge for my printer

F*ck!!!  I've just pulled too hard on my Garmin strap to get it off my wrist and have broken the bloody thing

Hi Jane. There's a few of us going on the Saturday and possibly meeting up if timings work out. If you ask ATM to add your mobile to the list she's doing, text one or two of us if you fancy joining up.

Birthdays added.

Jus T - This week's is easy peasy. Iain M will be along at some point to solve it.

PC91 - Keep thinking, I'll give you another clue. Gilda was played by Rita Hayworth, The Girl was played by Marilyn Monroe and Loana was played by Raquel Welch.

@EE.....oh no...just the strap or the watch itself?  Did you not get another strap with it a velcro one? I did if I recall - not that I'd know where it is.

Hopefully get it sorted out before the day.

Weedy - I've got TODAY's one 

25/03/2013 at 17:16

Onetit - just the strap.  I've got the additional black velco strap (although I don't like it) but I think that I have lost the little gizmo that enables you to change straps 

25/03/2013 at 17:20

Onetit - I've found the pointy thing for changing straps....phew!!  Have to wait until Mr E returns on Thursday as I haven't got a clue.

Well can I just say that I';ve spent ages reading back pages and have come to the conclusion that you've all gone "Tapir Mad".

Am certain you'll all be fab ... as youve put in so much hard work .. 

Will keep checking up on you all (you behave DLR as only you can) .......  Enjoy
