Well done David, I really do sympathise, I had to walk a few miles at London and it is dispiriting isn't it?

It took me over 6 hours to complete Beachy. Hardest time I ever had.

Mr Puffy

is your choise of charity still http://www.uk-sands.org/home.html?

Well DF3 promised to put 50 quid into a charity of choice if he was unsuccessful, I chose SANDS which supports bereaved parents.

the deal was we would put a fiver to St Tiggywinkle's (really) if he won, but I feel honour bound to send them a fiver anyway now, would be nice if his efforts got them some money too.

My old man saw  David and Jindalee just before the start and said they lookked slightly nervous not so much Jindalee, in fact he said she looked well fit, but David looked like a duck

05/05/2013 at 20:22

opps

pressed the wrong button...

 like a duck out of water.  My hubby was going to say hello  but David was listening to his ipod and looked a bit unapproachable like he didn't really want to be there.

I much preferred your original post

wait a min..did DF compound his lack of training with some ipod wearing?!

I liked 'looked like a duck' better too.

What a top Trooper! That must have been one hell of an effort to keep going. I have just donated the money I said I would to Tiggywinkles. Congratulations for finishing and I can recommend a good physio if you need one!

 

 

Thank you very much for your kind donation Peter. Much appreciated!

Jindalee  my husband is a shy old fellow but I'm sure he'll say hello to you next time.

05/05/2013 at 20:37

LOL. I just walked up to ppl to say hi. Someone else gave me his race number and I managed to spot him after we finished so I introduced myself. Did have him down as a shy person tbh. Well, as I have my forum name in black glittery letters on the back of my race shirt I am sure he can spot me easily enough at another race and introduce himself

IT's the way I tell 'em.

that was my husbands joke.

Marathon running is a funny old game, it's a game of two halfs but it's not to be taken too seriously.

No problem, I hope Tiggywinkles does well from David's hard efforts. Maybe he should see if they could get him a charity place at next year's VLM!! And congrats on your result too.
