Camaraderie Rules ;o)
JD Green tea for me..... class that.
T-Rex 2nd snod for me
phew thats better
sudden realisation of what I've signed up for..............................can't wait
Just realised I haven't planned my walk for Sunday yet. Did three 3000-ers last year (didn't help achilles problem). I think I'll wait to see what takes my fancy Sunday morning when I stick my nose outside the tent (assuming I've still got a tent, that is ...)
If it's tipping down I will be going straight home.
Mark B - well, you haven't got long to wait. 35 hours to be precise.
Hello, Gringo. I'm #1131 and my brother 1133. Someone has got between us. I'm hoping to put a lot of space betwen him and me on Saturday, though. We never go round together. He usually sets off fast and often gets over a mile ahead in a marathon. I start off conservatively and gradually haul him in, or not as the case may be.
Something I haven't done is ask for identifiable features, clothing, etc for list. Never mind. Can't do everything.
Meant to have a lie-in today but body had other ideas.
Still don't know what I'll be wearing. Apart from a number of course. But not just a number.....
Roll on 1st January so I can sign up again.
Well I've had a good practice run ......last night all I drempt of was Snowdonia, getting there late only just making it and then starting and then I woke up I hope the real sat will run a little smoother! and I'll get some sleep tonight!
T Rex....I'm no 1733 and hoping to make it in about 4.30.
Really really gutted for all those who can't make it on sat due to injury/illness, it can really tough decision to make but I'm sure its the right one, health comes first. I had to pull out of Man vs Horse this year due to knee injury so I really feel your pain. Big hugs!!
Well Im off to clean the house, pack (must remember my to pack my determination) and begin the drive from South to North. Very excited now.
See you all tomorrow and GOOD LUCK EVERYONE
No chance of a lie in, too excited.
Only protection against elements for me is my "second skin, body temperature control" top.
Doesn't look anything special too me but it seems to work.
T Rex I'll be easily recognisable as the only one needing a torch
I can only dream of waking up tomorrow and the weather is like it is in west wales this morning .....my idea of marathon running heaven ................. dream on I suppose though
Seocond Snod for me to and I am not talking about attire
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE - ENJOY YOURSELVES
4m in thick mist and 2 degrees this morning- went straight back home and packed long sleeved top and 2 pairs of gloves
Leaving shortly- so have a GREAT race everyone if I don't catch you later, though hotel has wifi and am packing laptop. Looking forward to seeing lots of you for rehydration in the Padarn lake tomorrow, especially looking forward to a reprise of "We are the Champions" from T Rex (Our T Rex that is, not the rock group!)
Been enjoying the build up and the banter on here. Really sorry to hear that Trocols1 and Frodo are having to make the difficult call to drop out. It sounds like you have made a sensible decsion as no race is worth risking serious illness for.
I am number 1350. Had been having sleepless nights all week in case they gave me 108 by mistake
Last morning at work then off after lunch.
Good luck to everyone.
...............................best go and sort kit out and pack
Bit chilly here in Rhyl, see you later!!!!
Those wanting to recognise the true pilgrims attending the HAJJ on Saturday only have to search for runners not wanting to attract the attention of others.
I will not wear any number pinned to my vest as it goes against my faith.
The vest in question was lucky many years ago when i ran my 3-21-54 in it.
It was then retired from competition for over ten years until i was asked to become a pilgrim.
What better tribute as a disciple but to choose that special vest once again.
Tomorrow will only be the third time in 17 years it has been worn so you are indeed lucky, fortunate even to cast eyes on it.
Even though this is my 17th Snowdonia Marathon and the fourth different course i have run i am still very excited.
I can only imagine how excited and nervous those doing it for the first time tomorrow must feel.
I WANT TO WIISH EVERYONE DOING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME TOMORROW ALL THE BEST
And those attempting their first ever marathon YOU WILL E A CHANGED PERSON AFTER YOU COLLECT YOUR SLATE tomorrow.
Early to bed and plenty of jellybabies because you are an athlete and those applauding you along the course tomorrow know they are witnessing something special.
THE 29th SNOWDONIA MARATHON
