costs, outfit, accomodation etc
name on vest
back and front
your MUCH more likely to be cheered
it will prove a real winner, i try and cheer all whether i'm running or spectating, but those i see with a name on , get the biggest cheer
From my experience, if you dont have your name printed on your shirt, supporters find it amussing to shout out the first name they see which is on your running number, last few years everyone has been shouting 'FLORA'.......this year however!
As a side note I used some t shirt transfer paper, £5 from Tesco and did it myself
So do I put Camlo so all my buddies here will recognise me or my real name? Hmmm Camlo for sure-then hopefully I'll get a few hugs & a kick up the jacksie too.
Running for my lad who has kidney probs- his website is www.archiemorton.com if anyone wants to see!
Funny thing, when I got married many moons ago my Dad asked me if I was sure & said I could back out if I wanted-last night he said the same thing about VLM!
I know for my charity they have a limit of 6 characters on your vest. It's up to you what you'd rather have people cheer, you're real name or nickname on here. However, I do remember someone saying on here that they had an usual name so supporters shouted all kinds of things! No saying that Camlo is difficult to pronouce but when you're zooming past people they may be expecting an everyday name.
It looks like dads like to make you feel really confident about doing VLM. Mine told me "do you know people die doing marathons?" Thanks.
