Camaraderie Rules ;o)
Ian H - we'll decide for you: you loved the race. No other marathon has such drama or presence.
Liked that report, Chimney. I suppose it could be worse - at least you haven't called yourself Chimney Pot. Lol.
I'm afraid I can't keep up an endless stream of ridiculous, but true, stories. Besides you lot are rapidly catching up.
I was intending to have some escapades on Crib Goch but in the end, although I had the time and the weather was reasonable, I decided against it. I felt I had done enough for one weekend.

Legs feel OK now. I’m still on a bit of a high after Saturday. I have had a lot of messages from other runners, which I have been made up with.
Thank you Gobi
Yep, the Waunfawr climb was pretty horrific, but, as of course you know, you have to respect the marathon and if you haven't done the training it can really come back and bite you back!! I am hoping with a bigger mileage in 2012 including some longer (& slower!)/timewise runs I would run the last 5miles a lot stronger (something which Iain R has discussed with me - he said I would probably have had the lowest weekly mileage of any other runner in the top 20 - Iain probably does double my mleage!!)
As I've said before I was sorry that you could not approach this marathon 100% and give it your best shot - I recall you saying before that, having done it as part of the triple, in 2006 you wanted to come back and do it justice - it is a shame that you haven't had that oppotunity
Yep - weather day before/after was, pretty much ideal!! Since you did it back in 2006 the weather has been "interesting/challenging" each year - I keep on saying that we are due a nice one next year. I thnk the weather conditons were a lot worse for the fantastic spectators marshalls etc than the runners. That said I would like a drier one - it would make the descent into Llanberis a lot quicker.
I briefly spoke to you after you finished and got out of the finish area, but you were shooting off to get dry/warm (I was in my hi viz orange running jacket)
Chimney- great report
JB- congratulations on a cracking and well deserved result
Stuart- still eating now!!
Sub 3 SNOD sure sounds good
Signing off here now- thanks to everyone- it's been a blast as always! See you in 2012 and on 2012 thread
