What time GMT is it going to work out at? Are they 7 hrs behind us?

Thanks, Tim. I had really been hoping this would be on, but thought I needed to wait until closer to the time to know whether it would or not. I did expect recorded highlights at best, so full and live is magnificent. Would it be tempting fate to get in the champagne instead of beer do you think?

BTW, Chicago is 6 hours behind.
I went to university there. The marathon route went past my apartment building. That was before my running days though so I only watched for about 5 minutes. The city is extremely flat so hopefully Paula will be able to get that World Record. Go Paula go!

Excellent research Mr Giggs.

point of order...
you said 'Paula' without adding 'we are not worthy'.

It's probabl;y a bit risky putting money on it, what with it being a marathon and that, where anything can happen, but I'd be really surprised if Paula (we're not worthy, 2003 British Sports Personality of the Year Elect) can't find those extra few seconds. Personally I expect her to knock about two-three minutes off the world record.

If you're counting women only races, she already holds the world record.

If you look back through the FLM winning times, she's nearly five minutes quicker (i.e. near as damn it a mile) faster than any previous female winner.

How about a virtual Paula Party on the 13th? All get the beers in, set the TV up, and post to the forum! Having said that, she's going to be the proverbial street ahead, as at London, so it could all be a bit monotonous, although magnificent all the same!

Go Paula!

I expect Paula to win but it will much closer than in London - she's up against the Catherine Ndereba the World Recorder holder. Should be a good men's race to Kannouchi and Tergat both running

Don't forget to get some beers. Sit back and be amazed. I predict 2:17:58.

Excellent!! All life stops at 1.30 tomorrow afternoon.

The TV Times I saw said twenty past one, not half past. I don't want to miss a minute of it!

Go Paula!!

Saw her interviewed on Grandstand today - she even has her name embroidered on her shoes - bless!

Thank your lucky stars you are able to watch Paula ( kiss your feet, I am not worthy ) live. I am stuck here in Krautland and will not see it at all, unless one of the satellite stations show some hightlights. Boo Hoo.

Hi bill, I will be watching the one and only Paula tomorrow, I wish you could see it also.
Thanks for the email, it cheered me up no end.
I cant imagine what its like in Germany, suppose weather is like ours but a few degrees colder.
By the way you dont have to kiss my feet.
Till next time Bill, take care,
Go Paula...............

Let me be the first to congratulate Paula on the excellent run today - where can womens records go now ? If its not Paula it's not gonna be another record - for a few years yet antway

What a girl. Didn't she fly.

Congratulations Paula.

WOW, stunned and more than a little emotional here. I was hoping she'd get under 2:18, but to take 1.5 minutes out of the world record is utterly amazing. What a privilige to watch history in the making. Seriously AWESOME!!
13/10/2002 at 16:31
What can I say?

we truly are not worthy!
13/10/2002 at 16:32
Fantastic! The best British athlete ever, bar none!
13/10/2002 at 16:33
Sorry, forgot to say, we are not worthy.

Absolutely fantastic, I have admit to getting a bit emotional at the end..
