I was looking out for you from about 10 min earlier than your time as I didn't have my watch with me so was having to guess and keep looking at my phone

I was looking all the way up to mile 18, when I gave up! But actually it made that mile seem really short so that helped!

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped out on the day or with the preparation leading up to the day.  Considering it was organised very last minute compared to most years it all went very smoothly on the day.

I hope that those of you who are newer to the forums and who benefited from Mudchute this year can see yourselves able to come and stand on the other side of the fence in the next year or two.  We can't offer this support without volunteers and often the best volunteers are those who have run a marathon so understand what the runners are going through when they get to us.

Thanks for the big cheer, guys - I spotted your station but wasn't expecting quite so much noise!

And thanks to Supercaz who not only pulled all the organising together but turned up with excellent ginger cake as well .

That was purely self interest as I knew I wouldn't eat otherwise

Thank you so much , that orange you gave me was the most welcome food I had all day xxx

Thank you all! Definitely seemed well organised from a runner's point of view although you almost caught me by surprise as my brain was a bit slow processing the information that numbers meant I'd reached you already. And super service for you guys to recognise me and have my goodies handed over while I was burbling about whether you were the runner's world people or not!

Can recommend helping out, I ran last year came down this year to help out, it was so much fun!! Not sure if entering ballot or not..... So don't know which side of fence will be on next year.

Well Done everyone!

Caz that cake was yummy. Thankyou

I'll definitely help out next year. Much like Alki, i was slow to realise what the numbers were on the right hand side. Beside the fact i actually forgot to leave gels at the expo,  the noise and support you guys were giving was amazing. Being my first marathon i didnt really know what to expect, Its certainly the atmosphere and support that gets you round.  Ill be behind behind the fence next year shouting at the ones that need it most

I saw you all but only because I ran past two years in a row and now I know where to look!


Thanks for the support


I saw YOU Puffy!

Can we just all agree now, that I am indeed.....quite simply the BEST jelly babies giver-outer that ever lived?

23/04/2013 at 17:28

I'll allow that if I can claim to be the best orange giver-outer

23/04/2013 at 19:17

But none of you spotted my approach......

23/04/2013 at 20:00

Approach?  Were you mincing or doing a funny dance?

23/04/2013 at 20:01

Nope - I just ran up to you all, totally unnoticed, despite being in LB's eyeline!

23/04/2013 at 20:22

I think I was hugging someone else at the time...

23/04/2013 at 23:52
I think you'll find that I was the best jb giver-outer.

I was really good at saying one thing and meaning another!
