We are on fb more now L. I've tried to look you up but can't find you.  I'll pm you

TMA, what have you been up to then? Are you on facebook?

Blimey, Dalya, TMA, Essence ! Can you lot all get over on to facebook ???? PM me if you can't find me.......(Darren Chilcott)

Still plodding along here but currently suffering a non-running niggle that is hampering me a bit. Was hoping to do SDW 100 miler in June but looking a bit doubtful at the moment. Rejected for VLM 2014 and probably going to be on holiday for Brighton, but will find a few other to do instead.

Well all....*blows away the cob webs*  just checking in before Sunday! Who else is in this year? 

After over 2 years of illness and then several false starts and injuries I have returned since Boxing Day! 

I have managed to slowly rebuild to a point where this marathon is doable albeit nothing like my previous four London's in 07, 08, 10 and 11 all of which I finished in the magical sub 4. 

This time it will be survival but I will get around...nearer to  5  hours than 4  I suspect, but I shall smile through any discomfort and think of how lucky I am to be running again. I shall be running for Alzheimer's Society. Like OG said get over to Facebook those of you who remember me!

Hi all

Don't know if anyone remembers me, but I was quite active on here a few years back. Only done 4 marathons, all London in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012. I've had some long term injuries over last couple of years but slowly getting back and managed a 9 mile club run last week at 8.25 mm pace, so not to bad. Turning to cycling now as my body's joints prefer it to running, and hoping do do a couple of sportives this year. I would like to do another marathon one day but just don't know if my body will take the long runs any more?

Hope everyone's well and still running, whatever distance on road/off road. My wife's doing London this year for third time so I'm going down to support of course. Anyone going to be there and where? Will say hello of course if I can spot anyone?

Hi NFS - similar to me!   You were always one of the quckest on here! Sounds like you're doing well coming back and thats a pretty decent pace for 9 miles! Well done for come back!  If you spot me Ill be wearing an Orpington Roadrunner bright yellow top and staggering around at about 10 minute miling...and then dragging myself around canary wharf probably as always hated that section!

Hello NfS good to hear from you!

I'm running on Sunday, had a couple of weeks enforced rest so don't know what the outcome will be.

I'll keep an eye open for you Benyo round the start!

Good luck on Sunday Mr P and Benyo - I hope you won't be too depressed by what happens at the Amex on Saturday!

09/04/2014 at 13:51

Hi Benyo

Thanks for the kind words and good luck for Sunday. I'll look out for you and give you a big shout if I spot you?  I would be trying much the time as you I think if I was up for it this year. I was only thinking yesterday that ten min' miling would be realistic for 26 miles these days if my slightly dodgy knee help up ok? I certainly couldn't have kept my 8.25 mm up for any longer than the 9 miles at last Wednesday's club run, but that's the best I've run for over a year, so thinking the cycling is probably helping strengthen dodgy knees?

Mr P.  Good to hear from you also and good luck for Sunday.

Hi guys,

Aiming for 345-350 ish, hoping to catch a view of Mo as I come off Tower Bridge and he is steaming the other way!


Has anyone got a link or instructions on how people can track us on the day please?



10/04/2014 at 07:09

I'm glad a few of the originals are still running marathons. I am up to 111 now and did Brighton on Sunday with a bad back, so didn't achieve the magical sub-4 hours. I don't really like road events, so the others this year will definitely be of the trail variety!

11/04/2014 at 14:19

hello folks

just checking in .. come on here at least once a year, usually around now to wish everyone who is running all the best.

running  lot less these days as just been diagnosed with compartment syndrome in both calfs so hopefully getting fasciotoimies in May - its supposed to work within a month or so lets see how it goes

good luck all

Omahd ! )  Wishing you the very best with the op....., great to hear from you and hope we will all be back in 2015

How did it go for everyone? 

I loved every minute the crowd, the weather, the whole event was more than special. Just incredible.   

My running wasn't great but I got around in 4:31  , not up to a true 3:45er of old but pleased to be back running and aim get better with pace for 2015 . Jez welcome ....I was way to slow to catch a view of Mo!
