No SuperCaz - it wasn't open at the time....
Supercaz - no problem, I didn't need the gels anyway and it should have been me that spotted you seeing as you had brightly coloured signs and balloons! Also I was about 4 minutes earlier than I said. Hope you're feeling better.
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!
That was purely self interest as I knew I wouldn't eat otherwise
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

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?
I'll allow that if I can claim to be the best orange giver-outer
But none of you spotted my approach......
Approach? Were you mincing or doing a funny dance?
Nope - I just ran up to you all, totally unnoticed, despite being in LB's eyeline!
I think I was hugging someone else at the time...
