Oh Gladrags I'm so sorry!!! I worked off the last list in the thread so it may be that there's been some omissions in copying and pasting

Like Rob says, rock over to the Wicked One's, we'll welcome you with open arms!!

Another looking for a welcome with arms, open rather than loaded.

I haven't posted my name before because I'm a bit slow on the uptake, and irregularly in and out of here.  Anyway, I'm running, and would love someone to hand me gels and throw water over me at mile 17!  Any takers?

If it is OK with SBH and TP then you are welcome to join Group 3

Cheers, SuperCaz!  I'll find your thread and figure out what I have to do.  Contacted SBH and she was happy with anyone who could picking me up, so I'll see you in there.  Hopefully my needs will be light and simple...

Anyone want to welcome another runner? Family can't make the race so I'll be lonely

Sister Bad Habit has told me to linger on this thread until someone adopts me!..... *waits patiently*

20/03/2012 at 13:59
bloody long wait LOL
20/03/2012 at 14:03
Be patient James.  One of us will have you, but as I've already adopted an additional one I am willing to give the other groups a chance first.
20/03/2012 at 14:19
Come over to Group 4, James
20/03/2012 at 14:21
YEY! See you there!

One thing that I asked on my group thread was: Is there anything that the runners can bring the supporters for your trouble (e.g. jaffa cakes/beer etc).... to be able to keep you occuped whilst you're waiting for us?

I'm planning to write my number on my arm so I don't forget

20/03/2012 at 14:57

Oh Emmy, that's really sweet of you!

Nothing special for me (I'll probably bring a flask of coffee or check out where the nearest Starbucks/Costa/etc is) but thank you so much for asking x

Emmy, there is a general request for money which we can use to buy some of the supplies for the runners so that we don't ahve to drag 20 tonnes of jelly babies from all across the country.

I will be making the supporters a cake.  It's tradition.  Cake goes everywhere with me.

We'll be popping in as usual.- drinking far too much and cheering excitedly.  There's a supermarket very close to the support point  so the supporters usually fair pretty well.

 (I've not read back, it is in the same place as usual etc isn't it?)

20/03/2012 at 16:56
Yes, it's the same spot.  This year I have remembered that the supermarket doesn't open until 11.  Every year we are queuing up outside at 10 as we always forget.

Dear fellow RW forumites - spectators and runners

This is Mick speaking

Some of you will no doubt know a lot about us , some may not

So, to say -

We as already stated hope to get to Mudchute to have a day of fun

But my day will depend on Philip’s behaviour, as he is most content on the move, and not so much us being static

He sadly does not give me much chance to socialise with anyone, he really craves my attention , Philip can be extremely demanding, he can do very little for himself, and he cannot talk he shreaks

So, please if I appear to be ignoring anyone or not interested, I’m sorry, I’ll do my utmost best to be respectful and polite and sociable to you all , but my life is easier when he’s happy

I myself would so much rather be running, and its only due to London marathon bosses that we are not

So, my apologies are given up front,

I do hope you all have a fabulas day

If there’s is anything you’d like to know from me, then please feel free to ask, online here or on the day, and I’ll do my best to accommodate you

Best wishes always
