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

Nearest coffee is at Asda 5 mins walk away, or you can hop on the DLR for 2 stops to Greenwich and there's a Costa and a Starbucks (and an M&S food if anyone has a sudden Percy Pig craving).

Fingers crossed for a good day for both of you, Mick

Could I request a group please? I had a group the year that it hailstoned and I remember it cheered me up no end to have someone (Aitch!) give me a hug and some Jelly Babies

Feel free to join group 2 Nykie, we love a frog

The lovely supporters will attend to you whilst I am stuck in Fawlty Towers, more chance of decent service and edible food at Mudchte.

Mick, to have you and Philip there woul be the biggest bonus, no apologies necessary.

I can't believe I only just saw this thread! What a wonderfully sweet idea.

I'm a runner - not asking for any supplies or anything, just a motivational lifting cheer as mile 17 is pretty far down the course Can I please be added to the list?

Fizzipop, you are welcome to join Group 3.  Can you post your details on the Group 3 thread so that we know who we are looking for?

Absolutely, thanks SuperCaz! I'm off to track it down now

Oh sorry I've just discovered this thread and I'm running my first VLM this year. Can I have a group please? I might not even require anything more than an extra big cheer!
