PLEASE, I never got a place but my partner did who applied. She is really worried as it is her first marathon, and has been training hard with me. So could you give a huge chear for 17745 'Emily' running for Ali's dream a charity for child with brain tumours. It will her such a lift. THANKS

hi always smiling what time do you think you are going to finish in - i hope to be able to finish in just under 5 hours - like 4hrs 59 minutes 59 seconds would be good.

hey foxyt - i noticed in the last marathon mag that you can make a paser which is like a bandle - you have to put what time you should be at each mile marker - obviously you may have to ask someone the time if you don't wear a watch

Guys - if you're not allocated to a team, we're still there for you. Just come over to us at mile 17 and gasp 'I'm a forumite' and we will deliver hugs and anything else you need.

I'm going to try and get Evil Pixie ironed on my vest today!! But I can't find the software for reversing the words!! Well gives me something to do at work today as there is NO WAY I'll be working!!

Thanks meerkat!

<<fury hugs>> Pix. We'll be there for you!

Evil Pixie...would that be on the front of your vest or back?

To the left of middle or right...top half or lower and possibly covered my your number....?

Have a great day all.

Pix, if you can't get your name ironed onto your vest there are a couple of alternatives. Most high street print shops will do it for you, or you could write it on with fabric paint. Will be looking for you at mile 17.

I hear they'll also put letters on at the Expo? If you haventyet registered Pix, take your vest with you.

I just want to wish everyone the very best for Sunday
Have a great day

Pix - you should be able to reverse your image somewhere under 'file' then print options / setup / orientation. Something like that. Or your printer might offer a 'transfer' option. Make sure you cover the transfer paper with a tea towel (dry) before you iron or you will have a sad and melted vest on Sunday!!!!
Good luck all.
Go team 9!!!!!

if your printer doesn't have a reverse then write the words in paint, save then insert as a picture in work/works, and then drag the bottom corner across the picture and it will reverse it.

Help - feel like I've got a cold starting - perhaps it's just paranoia - hope so. Signing off now as going to work then off to London tomorrow.

All I can say is enjoy it everyone - it's your claim to fame and if you stick close to someone called Paula you might get on the teli!!
