paul young 2h49 - no he definitely did cheat! i ran past him at 4ish and 10ish miles - both time he was wlking v slowly... so it must have taken him an hour to walk the last 3?

photos rubbish as usual - apart from early ones when i knew the photographer was there so am smiley and standing up straight.... towards the end i am my usual crumpled self...

Gadrags - My husband took a photo of Paul only the beach before you climbed back up onto the road before the pier. Hubby camera digital camera say there at 11.05am, which I think was about the 8 mile mark. He was also in front of my friend Steve and me, but he was one of the last to cross the start line.  We have a photo of him crossing the start line in 9.56am, but he was in front of Roobarb my friend.

I fed back about this cheating on the online survey that i was sent - what a waster.

Hi Tracey G,

My race number was 2535. Trying to get a photo for my justgiving site for London Marathon (is that really twice as long as sundays run!!!).

If none no worries.

My experience of Mr Young are the same as Galdrags, overtaking him in Hove between miles 4 and 5, and then again on Marine Parade at around the 9 mile mark.  Still I finished in front of him and my only race was against the goal time I had estimated it may take me as this was my first Half.

 Tracey G, I was runner number 3825.  If you have any photos of me I would be interested to have a look!  Thanks for the offer in advance.

I seemed to get bugger all in my bag

a chunky kit kat and that was it apart from the leaflets

Chunky kit kat?

I had two choccie oat bars (ate one straight away!), and two Jordan's cereal samples (ate both last night) plus the usual rubbish flyers. Still, better than last year - we got some dodgy "energy" bar that I kept for several months until I had nothing in the house to eat. It was gross!

Roobs - I would have loved the Ki Kat. Raisin and sultanas was all that I eat out of mine. Chocolate breakie cereal bar and muesli with nuts that I cannot eat was not good to me. Give me a Kit Kat or Mars bar any day.

Who made up these bags. I choccie oat bar, 1 Jordan's cereal sample and raisin and sultanas in a bag.
