When you're watching the VLM on TV this year, will you be slightly bitter?

No.go for a run instead................the training might help you get your own GFA place and stop you getting old and bitter over something as meaningless as a marathon.......

or just go to Llanelli and run a wellrun flat fast marathon.....

your office geek deserves it as much as you ... If you were a serious runner you would earn your own place or be happy running any marathon......

Far better marathons out there where you can run for whoever you want and raise whatever you want and see some far better scenery then the back of 50000 other runners

I won't give a shit.  I don't know why people get so wound up about running "The London".  "The London"?  FFS, you vacuous nobber.  Find a decent marathon and run that instead.

I'll probably be watching it on catch up after a nice cross country run

Blimey David who's rattled your cage again? 

I won't be bitter because I'll be running the race for the seventh time in nine years.

What's the difference between you & me? Perhaps I just want it more.

Just sayin'...

did you sit and watch the olynpics with bitter hatred that you would have enjoyed taking part in it ....if it wasn't for all those faster, richer athletes..........

if your parents had bought you an expensive horse for your first birthday you could have been getting that gold medal........

I'm going to Mile 17 to play with the naughty people

How did you get in 7 years out of 9 Mr Puffy?

I will record it and will be very upset and bitter if I don't get shown in tv. If I don't I will write the BBC a strongly worded letter and ask them to refund my ??32 entry fee.
Why get so bitter about it it's just another race.

No I am not good for age David, I wish I were.

Cinders I don't have a secret formula or anything..

2006: Golden Bond place from the local Hospice
2008: Ballot place
2010: Golden Bond place donated to Hospice by the local Lions club
2011: Club place
2012: Club place
2013: Ballot place (4th year of 5 year rule)

My comment to David was tongue in cheek, but there is a grain of truth in it, I fully understand why some people do not rate the race, but me I just love it.

OK that'll be six then!

all so sad ahh

highly skilled veteran (old hand ) marathoner, only for last 10 years has run only pushing his severely disabled son in his wheelchair

But then, the sick and disabled needing assistance are not welcome, no matter how expereinced the carer pusher is

me, angry, bitter peeved - YEP

23/01/2013 at 21:46

nope, shall be trotting along merrily

23/01/2013 at 22:02

David - you take care always friend

we got to run, well , walk and run in 2008 after a long hard battle with the organisers - in the end it was because the pressure was relentless - they gave in after we won the RW Jane tomlinson award - it was a day of celebration , we partied all the way - i was so disappointed when we arrived into last 3 miles - i was seriously chanting " lets go round again "

if they let us go behind wheelchairs id race it and crusify it
