Debra Bourne - Just entered MIlton keynes marathon which is the start of may, if this goes well I may have a go at the northants ultra ( 35 ish miles) which is held 4 miles from where I live and build up slowly to longer events. Never been speedy but distance does not bother me.

Yes mad ... race started as a way to get athletes into running race amd marathons. Now to be honest they couldny really give a toss about runners all they want is people to raise money for charity. Its now just an event where people do little or no training walk round and claim to have "run the London Marathon"

It just makes me laugh as people seem to think they cant give to charity unless someone runs 26.2 miles !!!

People also can`t seem to grasp the fact that I run for fun. Come early next year i`ll have to fend off all of the questions of "London Marathon? What charity are you doing it for?"

28/09/2012 at 17:06

Yes annoyed me as well people used to ask me that and I would say Im not but then advised them thet do not have tpo wait until somone run the LM to donate to charity

Probablt the same folk who sit around for years needing double glazing but have to wait until somone rings them up to ask them if they need it !!

I have been pledged enough to buy four penguin sized sombreros so far, poor blighters will never see how sweet they look.

Katy, that's great. Do go and run northants - I've heard good things about it, although that's not one I've done. Come see us on the "wannabe ultra runner" thread over in the Ultra / Adventure Racing section.We're friendly! - Mad, but friendly!

......can I whisper my aspirations to be an ultra-runner.

Definitely got the qualification of mad. I might have to shyly nip over and wave sometime.

Just listened to tony audenshaws marathon prayer on marathon talk, now would be a handy time to know how to add a link, but I dont know how to, so google it or something, absolutely spot on! Please have a listen

I think it's in the audio archive section on the marathon website.

Millsy, I pissed my self laughing, literally!

I am  total newbie to running distance.. yeah i could run at school and i play football.. I have decided to run the London marathon as I see this as a massive accomplishment

I entered a few months ago and yesterday I recieved my pack! It's unreal.. I have been lucky enough to be accepted upon first try!

Hard training starts from tomorrow.

Hi Michael, good luck, if you need any advice, feel free to ask, can't say that I am an expert, but am keen to spout my opinions........

I just googled blind penguin, pmsl!

01/10/2012 at 18:01
That's me not in.
01/10/2012 at 20:09
yes Scott ...see what I mean !! I thought myself quite worldly..but hadn't expected that! .. even more reason to raise awareness for the poor Mexican penguins as their plight may have been confused with the common blind penguins!
01/10/2012 at 20:13
Gemgemx, I am quite broad minded, but just don't see the attraction of the blind penguin, those plucky Mexican fellas have on the other hand a certain charm, hence we need to raise awareness of their plight. In a similar vein, don't google sea gulling either......

too late! Nice!!!!
