Hmmm...wonder if OH can drive back to Wales with drunken marrafunner or if I can wangle another day iff and book another night

I am a very good SBH as I have always booked the Monday off  Just as well really or the entire office would have been pished the last three years just off my fumes - in fact, it would have been easier for me to kip at the office on the Sunday night rather than go home if I was at work!!!

I don't remember drinking in chandos last year.  In fact I only just remember getting on the tube at Muchute.  The rest is all a blur until the landlord kicked us out.  We were the last two people left in the place.

Just checking if I have understood this correctly.  The supporters meet at Mudchute and provide runners with various indulgences.  At the same, time, the supporters start drinking.  Everybody finishes and we all go to the pub, by which time the supporters are already pissed.  Sounds good, I'll fit right in

Louise, last year was my first year as a supporter and I'd say you have got it about bob on. You must also miss a few of your runners and be quite concerned until you have enough booze not to care.

25/01/2013 at 18:39

Yup, sounds about right.  And if I'm to prance around the streets of London in fancy dress I expect my lovely support squad, SBH, to have something alcofrolic to keep me going over those last nine miles

I am worried I have left my training as a supporter too late - will three serious binge sessions per week get me ready in time, or should I go for back to backs at the weekend as well ?

Spot on. See you there with a bottle of bubbly then.

BBH, I believe that although you need to train hard, it is also important to have rest days to let your body recover and rebuild.  By all means do back to backs but don't go over doing it

26/01/2013 at 19:36

I'll try and factor in a few rest days then..

Hi all, long time RW lurker, first time VLM runner , coming over from Ireland , would love an extra cheer at 18 and afterwards an extra beer where ever...

28/01/2013 at 13:28

Since I have been dry for the whole of January courtesy of being a dry-afferleet for Cancer Research I think that's all my rest days for this year and next completed in one fell swoop. Bring on Friday

@Ultra Kazzaaaah do you seriously think I'd not have anything there for you? I have a reputation to maintain y'know!!

28/01/2013 at 13:28

Hi everyone,

First time VLM runner, from Canada (via Sheffield!). I am running for charity, although my charity only had 1 slot, so I am on my own! Would love a little extra support at Mile 17, and I'm hoping to sign my husband up for the support crew (he should be easily convinced by offers of beer followed by an afternoon at the pub!).

Any more info on what we need to do to get involved with your crew is greatly appreciated!

Hiya. I'm in! First time, charity place with Headway.
