Hiya I know its getting close but is it too late to join a group and drop some goodies off to keep me going on the day - in 2007 I remember you bringing a smile to my face when it was most needed. I am a slow 51/2 to 6 hour runner so with you about 4 hours I should think. wearing stroke assoc kit with ANN on the front and probably with a face like a beetroot - thanks A

bikermum - pop over to Group 5 and tell them I sent you.  They'll attend to your needs on the day.

 Just seen this thread, its my first marathon, been running 7 months and running with my eldest daughter.  I will be running for action on pre eclampsia and wearing one of their vests with my name on the front 'Carol' - would love to just have some support - hope to finish in 5.15.

13/04/2012 at 21:51
Waving and shaking of our pompoms available to all Carol and we'll be handing out jelly babies and jaffa cakes.  If you want to join a support group and leave stuff at the Expo to collect on the way round let me know and I'll allocate you to a group

but i am only a novice i cannot shout any advice  LMAO

Excellent!! thanks guys, I should hopefully be at mile 17 at about 3.25 ish based on previous training runs.  Jaffa cakes and jelly babies sound good!, will be at exp on saturday. x

Adopt yourself onto Group 5 then Carol & daughter.  They'll take you under their wing

And I can assure you that Mick will not be waving his bits at anyone.  I'll make sure I keep him under control .... I'll use a big stick if I have to

13/04/2012 at 22:06

hi, its also my first marathon running for Macmillan. Would love some cheering and support from you guys as I'll probably be flagging by then. I'll have "LOUIE"  on the green vest crawling past - hoping to get round in, best 4:30-5:00hrs...
