FRC- my tip for extra speed is turn up late and run with your eyes closed. Saw Mo being interviewed on tv this am. He said he's looking forward to trying to keep up with you

2old: the only sub 40 I am planning is the last 3 miles

However beginning to think 4.30 is a bit pessimistic - think I might go for sub 4.15?

I'm doing enough carb loading for everyone!

O4S-go for it. We know you can do it
Tried a little test jog....just in case...couldn't even do a mile. So I am now ready to do VLM vicariously with Team Minni ..

I've been carb loading for everyone too - it's impossible not to in NY, have had 5 days solid of boozing and eating like a king... last night also involved a bull riding rodeo challenge at 3am which was interesting to say the least! My thighs hurt more than running a marathon this morning.

I'm probably not going to get on here again until Monday, so just wanted to wish everyone all the very best of luck for Sunday. I am soooooooooo jealous it's unbelievable! Go Team Minni!!!!!

Looking forward to reading the reports of how you all smashed it on Sunday!

mo is only saying that 2old since he knows you are injured. okay close eyes. Got it.

Remember this is the year we can all legitimately we beat an Olympic champion in a race fair and square.

Boston has moved on with the shooting. Wow.

So we just need Brolish and SS. Also Zuvai if he's lurking

FRC - Boston news really is moving quick isn't it?  Have fun at the expo

2old - it's such a shame, but at least it's cut and dried, you're not having to waver 'will I, won't I'. Hopefully we'll do you proud...and see you in 2014

Free- I expect a full house of PBs from all the team ...looking forward to watching you all come in over the finish line on Sunday
FRC- I'm watching Boston unfolding now. It's only a matter of time til they get the other one . Imagine a city in lockdown. I'd love to run its marathon again .

Just had a text from Minni - she's at the expo and says she found my message on the wall but I wrote it too high for her to reach

AA had to put my name up for the same reason!!

19/04/2013 at 16:08

I'll remember next year to write a bit lower for the vertically challenged

19/04/2013 at 16:17

Team Minni @ Boston 2014??

I am game ...

19/04/2013 at 16:50
I'm seriously thinking about Boston. Been to the EXPO and am in pen 3 should I be worried about a slow start?
19/04/2013 at 16:52

Good luck all of Team Minni at VLM - don't be shit! Looking forward to seeing some shiny new PBs on Sunday.

Went for my first run since January this morning. 2.1 miles @ 9:49mm - flying! lol. It's going to be a long, slow road back...

19/04/2013 at 16:55

Barry - no, you'll be fine. Get in there early so you can get to the front of it.

Daren - yay! You've got to start somewhere.

Chick...yes, that sounds like a plan. I'd definitely be up for it.

19/04/2013 at 17:02

I was in pen 3 last year Barry - went off absolutely fine with no problems at all. If you're worried about it, toally agree with Freemers, just get in the pen a bit earlier and then you can make sure you're close to the back of 2. 

Good to hear from you Daren. I know exactly how that feels, but you'll be back in no time!

I can sense the excitement in the air!

19/04/2013 at 17:23

Barry - I'm in pen 3 also... Thought that was good for a fast start as i was in 5 last year, but obviously not? Thought it was strange when the RW girl yesterday said that the sub 3.15 pacer was starting in pen 2? I'm sure that i put down 3.14.__ on the entry form... Or do they just ignore it???

Fellow clubmate who i'm travelling up with, has just e-mailed me to say that despite putting sub 4.00 as his expected time, he's starting in pen 9!!!!!!!

19/04/2013 at 17:24

Chick - Don't you have to run a fast qualifying time for Boston?

19/04/2013 at 17:32

Daren - thats exactly where I was in December - its slow going, but resist the temptation to come back too fast and you'll be getting back up to speed soon enough.

CG - good to see you on here again, and glad to hear the shoulder isnt so bad anymore

I've just checked and I get 15g carb per pint of ale - off for some carb loading!
