Last time I did the FLM I saw lots of celebs, this time I didn't see any, or at least not any I recognised.

Who did you see?

I saw Mark Hughes (ex-footballer) being interviewed at about Mile 13.

Was looking out for the Eastenders Lass Lucie.... but didn't see her.

Only saw Lisa from Eastenders at the finish being interviewed. She was very emotional and said it was hard....

PS saw it on the telly.

PPS I have to say when I say the highlights, I wondered if Paula ran the same route as me (parts of the course) as I didn't recognise alot of the places HOWEVER it is quite probable I was oblivious to surroundings at points mainly because of the crowds and also because I was in a world of my own trying to get around :))

It's a shame Paula didn't get the crowds all the way around that the rest of us experienced. Alot of her run was very much alone with few spectators...

I guess that's partly to do with the time she starts, and the speed she goes at!

I saw Lisa off EastEnders on telly!

My nephew got spoken to by Roger Black.

They interviewed Dermot O'Leary too, who visited here a few weeks back. If you read this Dermot - well done mate!

Paula got a SERIOUS cheer at 18 miles. We made sure of that :-)

I thought I passed Gordon Ramsay, but my husband tells me I couldn't've.

I saw Sharon Davies - not running but supporting a charity at about 13m.

Gordon Ramsay has done under 3:30 from memory, so unless he was having a bad day he'd be in front of you Vrap (and me for that matter!)

I had a quick chat with Chris Chittell who plays Eric Pollard in Emmerdale. He was very friendly, and wished me well.

Miss Mophead spotted the lass that won the SAS Jungle thingy on the box. Think her name is Jill.

I saw Sidney off Cbeebies being interviewed at Green Start - he's a children's TV presenter for the under 5s. I think I was the only one around who recognised him.

I saw Simon Hughes & shook his hand at about mile 12. He wasn't running though, just being a politician.

Saw sally Gunnell on Tower Bridge, She wasn't running either, she was interviewing.

Sooooo Gutted I missed Sharon davies though, I've had a thing for her since I was a lad !!

Saw Paula warming up doing strides. As cool as a cucumber!
14/04/2003 at 22:35
I saw Steve Perryman at the Expo!
14/04/2003 at 22:38
I saw Eric from Emmerdale, sad thing was I think he passed me!

Not sure but I also think I saw Elvis !

did not see anyone- would loved to off seen Lucy from eastenders- How you doin Lucy?

Celebs?? I saw 33,000 of em.Everyone who took part is famous.You dont have to be in some crap show on the telly to be famous.Putting your life on hold whilst training for a marathon,is a bigger achievement than putting a script down for a couple of minutes.We dont get pampered like they do,but we put the same effort in,maybe more.Well done to all the "not famous runners".

Nice one pinto wannabe !!!

Still wearing my medal in work this evening, one of my staff asked me why .
A knowledgable customer responded by pointing out that in being in FLM 2003 we were part of an event that raised around £10,000,000 and was with Paulas world record, history in the making !!!!

And anyway, aren't Jon and Caz famous ??????

So very true George,wear it proudly,you have earned it,and like you say,the money we raise for the less fortunate amongst us,some of whom would just love to be able to live a normal life,let alone run 26.2,makes it all worthwhile.

I saw Jane tomlinson being interviewed at the back of pen 9 in the blue start when the hooter went - respect due
More of a heroe than me and most of the 32,000 others, puts it all in perspective
