Hello everybody.

How's the last week build up to the Dublin marathon going.

I've just had a massive bowl of chilli and I'm now sick of the sight of hot cross buns.

Anyone going from bristol airport.

Hope everyone whose running has a good time.

You're r*nning Gavo? I didn't know...wow cool..good luck! (And to the rest of you of course)

Well I'm going. Whether or not what I do qualifies as r*nning is up to interpretation.

It certianly is, after the LFM I decided to I'd like to do a smaller marathon to see how fast I could do it and of course to taste the crack of Dublin.

My flight's Saturday afternoon, 3.15 Gatwick. Just had a pint and a half of Guinness for lunch and no food. Not much to eat last night either, but I had two slices of toast this morning. Its a new kind of tapering, I'm eating less and running more.

mmm.. I've got a stomach bug so any carbo input doesn't stay long enough to do any loading! Perhaps the gwance will help!

I'm on the 8pm flight from Heathrow on Friday night. Good luck to all of you and maybe see some of you there (# 2715).

Nah, drunk on Monday, hangover Tuesday and walk around with a limp for a few days trying to get sympathy at work. Should get me a seat at the Friday social though.

A seat in the SJT you must be joking.
23/10/2003 at 20:57
I'll definitely be needing a seat at the SJT!
I approve of Gavo's post marathon recovery programme :-)
