A great prize & challenge
Malcs I get in at that time too!! and Heading for the cafe!! I'm the blonde bobbed, grey jogging bottoms Bright Green hoody under black Northface coat with a Turkey Trot Green ruck sac on my back!! ....... oh I look too eager don't I!!
Oh Jonathan that's totally rubbish!! Hopefully RW will reconsider next year!!
When I ran my first marathon we were all stopping in a Hotel in Edinburgh, I shared with two of my friends and had the worst dream ever! when I did finally manage to get to sleep I dreamt that I woke in the morning to find I was back in my own bed in Derby, and I had ten minutes to get to the start line. So I was filling my water bottle's, putting trainers on all the things I knew I had to do in the morning, whilst calling a taxi as I knew I could never run the 2 miles in ten minutes! that was when I woke up in a confused state! I was shattered!
I'll look out for you. No idea what I'll be wearing yet but the intended layer count seems to be increasing as the week progresses!
I won't have anything on my head - and that includes hair! (all for aerodynamics of course)
Hi everyone, I am one of the lucky ones to have been invited to the Boot Camp this Friday and I wanted to just say thank you to everyone wishing us well
I am so looking forward to this amazing opportunity and look forward to meeting everyone on Friday
Bad news for you Jonathan having to withdraw.
Hope the weather is kind to you guys on Friday the other year there was snow on the track which was interesting!
Simon62w - I'm expecting to get to the cafe about 8:30 so that should be ok. Thanks for the info.
Looking like a cold dry one - weather has changed considerably down here in the South East! Brrrrrr....
Only a long day at work to get through followed by a late-night drive across to Birmingham. Now I'm excited!
If the temperature here is anything to go by, I think I'll be layering up in the morning - winter has definitely arrived!
The day is dragging a bit! Doesn't help that I thought I'd take a rest day!
I'm at work and just can't concentrate!!!
Hi Jenf - I know what you mean. I have a 2 O'clock meeting and then I'm b*ggering off home. I've been at my desk since just after 7am and I don't think I've done anything that resembles work
Good luck guys & gals.
I'm in the same boat as everyone else, I'm just as nervous for tomorrow as I get for a race!
Good luck for tomorrow at 'boot camp', sad not to be shortlisted. See you in Paris on the 7th April. Keep the advice coming. It will be my first marathon.
Looks like the snow is holding out for another time - phewph!
Tomorrow's weather for Birmingham: 2 degrees in the morning & cloudy - afternoon 4 degrees and sunny. Fingers crossed for an afternoon track session then!
Thanks to everyone for the good luck wishes. From reading the above it looks like we're all struggling to concentrate on anything this afternoon!
Malcs - I'm off home any minute soon. Been pointless being here really! Might as well have driven up this afternoon. That would have pleased Mrs DS2!
Malcs - forgot to say, may as well just take vest and shorts then!
Are you going up late tonight then? Good luck with the drive. I guess the later you leave it the better from a traffic point of view - and that'll at least keep you in the good books with Mrs DS2!
Glad the weather is going to be ok tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone and putting names to the faces. I agree with everyone else about the pre-race nerves! Probably more nervous than most races I've done and we've still got just under a day to go! Luckily I have a parents evening tonight to take me mind off everything.
We just need to turn up with running stuff and a smile tomorrow, right?
Safe journey to all those making their way to Brum. See you at 9.30 if not before!
Hi Stan - enjoy parents evening.
Safe journey's everyone! See you tomorrow!
