Just had a little jog followed by a physio visit, my knee is 75% and it's going to hurt whatever, so going for a slow steady pace on Sunday, finishing will be a success for me

Adam, great to hear you've made it; take it easy, enjoy the day and here's to a complete recovery as soon as possible.

Best wishes to everyone for what will be a great day on Sunday. Hope to hear plenty of success stories next week.  Cheers

All the best to those running on Sunday - I was with you last year and although I knew I did not have time to train to be out with you on Sunday as I see the preparations I dearly wish I could be out there - to run out of the tunnel and into the heart of my home city with packed streets cheering us on (and I was nowhere near the front) made me all emotional.

Brilliant news that 'JJ' are staring the race - now there are a dedicaed duo for you - often seen running around the streets of S Liverpool, give them a cheer and if you see them at the finish J's step-dad usualy is tooting a hunting horn as they cross the line.

Good luck to all running on Sunday. I won't be there, ran it last year and ran Chester this year - but will run Liverpool again one day as enjoyed the route and the support. Looks like the weather will be ok too....

We've got medal holders, merchandising, massage, kit bags if you're picking up, shuttle bus tickets and my darling helpful wife on hand to attend to you. She does it so much better than me.

She IS a darling isn't she?

Calm down Rachel!

Deep breaths.

First you have to deal with tomorrow. Make sure you load up on carbs and drink lots of water. Enjoy resting and chill out a bit. Get your kit ready and lay everything out on the bed. Pin your number on so you're happy with it. Decide what you're going to have for brekkie on Sunday and make sure you've got it in.

Just SATURDAY for now, yeah? Don't think too far ahead!

Well, quelle surprise, my niggly calf now feels completely fine

Doubtless tomorrow I'll wake up with a clicky ankle or a stiff knee, but I'll resist messaging about it and just wait until the pretend pain passes.  Oh how I remember laughing at my cat when I was a child, when she was clearly going through a phantom pregnancy - marathon's bring karma!

So now sat with a heady mixture of nerves an excitement.  I'm off work all next week, so today had the pleasure of many good luck messages and contributions to my justgiving page - hope I do everyone proud.

Kit bag all packed and ready now, will be driving up and over to Liverpool from Norfolk tomorrow morning.  Can't wait!!!

Made it through the English motorway system in one piece! Now ensconced at the parents in Bebington. Mrs cybarev and kids coming up from Bury St.Edmunds after footy in the morning. Tomorrow I intend to drink lots of water, eat loads of carbs and go and watch Tranmere give Yeovil a good sorting out!
Good luck everyone for Sunday.

How big is the Expo? Worth a visit or zzzz. I know Bex has got some posters done by her school kids though.

Rachelhen , chill. Great advice by LB, get that routine worked out, remember to charge the garmin up and check it. , get safety pins, pin number on kit. Enjoy a nice bowl of food, pasta, then sleep. A bit.

If I don't post tomorrow, look out for me Red Wallasey top (or red jacket if raining !) supporting all of you at :-

mile 4 for 30 mins, 9:50- 10:20;
Mile 9 at water station with rest of my club for an hour plus so see bulk of people from 3hrs to 5hrs time. I'm running with a friend at 5hrs ish time for 2 miles then nipping on train at Hamilton Square ;
Mile 18/25 on Upper Parliament Street so can see you both ways. Maybe grab some jelly babies for some.

Have fun, it's going to be a beautiful day.

Just a quick question, I am taking a bit of a risk tomorrow with my knee, I the worst case scenario happened and I have to stop along the course what will happen? Will I be just taken off the course to find my way back or will someone take me to the finish?

This tapering does strange things to confidence doesn't it... I've just updated my will, got it witnessed and made sure 6 people know of its location... also have just emailed my boss with a reminder of our IT server password just in case it's needed...
