Whoo hoo - bring it on - if you're lucky Bear will wave her crutch at you as you pass (if you're even luckier she'll lend you her spare one....)

Can't refuse an offer like that Bear

I'll look forward to seeing you on the day BBH,  JD, and of course all the runners! I'll do my usual general support thing, so I'm on for trips to ASDA for jaffa cakes, etc.

Thanks moomoo.  Always good to have an extra pair of hands

Hello. My name is Gemma and I'm training for a marathon. Apparently.

19/03/2014 at 21:11

does anyone hear from Tu Tu much these days? 

Gemma there was a forumite, she was/is in your club, she held the London Marathon record for a runner in a wedding dress, I bumped into her at the first Chester Marathon.

Hi guys, You also have Mattoo joining you

19/03/2014 at 21:18

Yes that's Eleanor, Mr Puffy.

19/03/2014 at 21:39

yes of course I remember now

Woot!! Thanks so much guys my name's Kate, I'm running for Action on Pre-eclampsia and will probably be dressed as Minnie Mouse. 

I'm hoping for a 4.45 finish, so will work out when I'll approx be at Mudchute to see all you lovely people when I'm less sleepy! 

I had a phenomenal time last year and the support from the RW Mudchute crowd was brilliant, so when deciding what to do on the last day of my twenties this year, it was a no brainer --  VLM, of course!

Hi everyone,

I'm Redhead (not Readhead!!!!) and as always I'll be running for Alzheimer's Research UK. VLM will be my 3rd marathon of the year (the first 2 are next week - week!) and my 34th in total. I don't know my number yet. I'll be wearing my purple vest but the best way to spot me will be from the wool tied around my waist and the crochet hook in my hands as I'm trying to beat my Guinness World Record for crocheting a chain whilst running a marathon

Eleanor's running VLM again this year too

20/03/2014 at 09:45

Excellent cause Kate, and love the costume idea!

I can't crochet standing still Redhead - you're awesome! I haven't seen much of Eleanor recently, but I believe she is back on it now after the baby!


So, I'll be wearing my purple Kirkstall Harriers vest, purple shorts, purple leg warmers/socks and pink/purple shoes, and I have red hair, so I'm pretty easy to spot. I'll likely also be crying/singing/waving all at once too. My number is 8213 and I'm in the blue start. Aiming for just under 4:30 and hoping to run with a pacer (anyone know when they will be announced?).

I'm going to the Expo on Friday afternoon and will likely be leaving just a couple of gels and some cash for you guys.

Oh, and any kind of abusive/sarcastic/sweary cheering works for me, so don't hold back!

Looks like we're going to be a very colourful group!  Should be easy to spot you.  Good luck with your forthcoming marathons Redhead and hope the rest of you have fun with your tapirs within in the next couple of weeks.

20/03/2014 at 19:53

Sorry Redhead.  I was getting tired when setting the groups up last night

21/03/2014 at 21:51

Good luck everyone for this weekend's training/marathon as the case might be.  Sadly all I'll be able to manage is a ssw  {short slow walk) but with a bit of luck I'll be able to ditch the crutch quite soon (paws crossed).

That was me nipping over from Group 3 and being cheeky!

23/03/2014 at 12:58

Oh dear BBHind, what have you done to warrant a crutch?

24/03/2014 at 13:03

Errrmm - I tripped over my instructor in a body combat class and busted my pelvis in 3 places.
