Come and have a go...
I'm worried about going up and down any step! I think we'll be so polite to each other on Saturday ...
"you first..." "Oh, no...ladies' first...." It's OK really, you first..."
Don't think I've got any plausible excuses for poor performance (yet) so it looks like I'm going to have to actually go as hard as I can. Simon, I'm glad you asked about eating because I've never done an afternoon race either and was wondering the same thing.
The taper has definitely begun, although I had to go to Goodge Street today and still chose to go up the 160 steps rather than use the lift. They were nice steps in comparison to the Box Hill beasts though.
I think we need to wish luck to the poor sods immediately in front and behind you, Phil.
My place is still available. If nobody takes it I might, just might, turn up and do it anyway. I'll be the one at the back, wheezing and spluttering like an old tramp <hack hack>.
Hello fellow foolish people. Why are we doing this?
Our other halves are coming along to watch with the kids - any suggestions as to the best viewing point? I've suggested the picnic area near the viewing point, or the viewing point itself and I suppose they could get a half-way view at the point where we turn round and head home.
I thought the start finish was probably not such a great point at which to watch from.
It's our first time at this race so experienced input would be appreciated.
But I did do the Leith Hill half and all I can say is 'watch your step'!
And as you've probably gathered, I won't be marshalling as I appear to be fit (?) to run. I'm looking forward to a good old sing-song before collapsing at the top of the first hill!
You know you want to do this Mr K.
Or are you saving yourself for the PICNIC next year
Cheers Muttley...cycling it is then! Should warm the legs up for that first hill!.
this had better be as good as I hope it's going to be..........
I've opted not to drink any alcohol tonight (part of my normal pre-race prep), but the England game is on, and I'm going to really struggle to survive the next 30 mins without a beer in my hand..........
