Dare - yay welcome back, you will get your fitness back in no time!

Pen 4 for me - BA is Pen 6 and our predicted times weren't much different. I can safely assume that none of you will be seeing my back!

I too am feeling lethargic and can't be bothered although I seem to remember feeling like this every year.

Suddenly had a mega wave of excitement

Me to AA!

Yes the hotel/office window thing was so weird. Master Minni was a bit worried she was a murderous stalker and we were living a psycho thriller movie!!

But we all survived. For now.....

Congrats cooks. Great news
20/04/2013 at 09:24

random indeed Minni/Bro!

Daren: good to see you back. Will you be HADDing to build back up?

How exciting, cooks! Congrats! Let us know what she's called

I had a beer last night. I'll probably have another one tonight as I slept like a log with no weird marathon dreams yet. Beer is good for carbs also

Congrats Cooks!!!
Lol Minni... It all turned out well after all...

Cooks: wishing you all good luck and a baby that likes to sleep a lot!

Restless, filling time until our train at noon - we packed everything last night and BA is currently unpacking to make sure he put everything in the first time. Given he is checking against the same list he checked against last night I am not convinced how useful this will be, but it keeps him busy!

Fantastic news Cooks!!

That is so spooky Minni and Brol!

Had a serious case of self doubt yesterday...OH had to talk some sense into me and i am starting to channel all the positives from my training. Now feeling quite calm, but i'm sure nerves and excitement will kick in soon!

I had a marathon dream last night. I was running Boston, all going well up and down the hills, when we turned a corner and the route changed into a forest trail with waterfalls and narrow rocky paths. No idea what that was about!

I'm all relaxing before a short walk with the dog. I'll be leaving around lunchtime to catch a train down to London.

Great news Cooks.

Minni stalking Brol,...very creepy! Rear Window last night. Pyscho shower scene next?

Freemers, Im having exactly the same self doubt... I'm unfit, overweight, can't run... All sorts of silly things. Thankfully also brought Bradley Wiggins biog to take my mind off things and also get positive seeing how he did - exactly like we all will.

Left Calf is a bit tight so taking it easy today, not going to the expo to meet friends. Pasta at f&b later and then very early night.

7350 blue pen 3, running kit like this but with Martin on front too.

Morning All,

Cooks - Brilliant news, congratulations... Is she running yet?

Minni & Brol - Hahaha... Priceless! I'd loved to have seen your faces when it dawned on you!

Sitting at work... Twitching with excitement and driving my staff mad! May get sent home at any moment as i get the feeling that i'm going to be detrimental to business today!

Went for an explorative run last night as hadn't run at all since Sunday's 12 and apart from the occasional short, stabbing pain at the top of the patella, it felt good. Only ended up doing about 2 miles as the heavens opened and i was wearing full race clobber, including race number so didn't want to get it soaked. Amazing reaction from the general public... Lots of well-wishers hanging out of their car windows and walkers also. Don't know whether it was the no. pinned on the vest or the black ribbon, or a combination of the two?

I have one final taper madness quandry. I didn't want to use a gel belt this year, so bought a pair of Brooks trail shorts with gel sleeves and a bigger pocket, but they are really big and baggy which i don't like, so may have to wear the belt and a normal pair of shorts??? Decisions, decisions.

Congrats Cooks

Take it easy today everyone

1.5 hours on the turbo for me this morning

Chickadeee - can we track you?

20/04/2013 at 12:45

Just managed to jump on here very quickly to say:




Will be watching and tracking where possible. Have a great race and can't wait to hear about all the PBs. Just watched the highlights of Brighton on the TV this morning and saw myself crossing the line!!

PS - Congrats Cooks

20/04/2013 at 12:46

Spoons: couldn't find any information about tracking on their website. But try to check for results - maybe they update their page as runners pass 5k, 10k, and so on.

My number is F1171.

I will start at 8am UK time . Less than 20 hours to go!!!

Oomps: bugger about the shorts ... I prefer a gel belt. I have "marathon" shorts too with plenty of pockets for gels but once fully loaded they weigh a ton and it feels like I'm in for indecent exposure    so gel belt is the way to go.

20/04/2013 at 12:53
Cooks - congrats.

Bit of sightseeing for us this morning including showing oh and youngsest where to stand and meet up. Lots of prep down the mall and very busy. Quite warm out there. Going to chill out for the afternoon. Bit happier now about pen.
20/04/2013 at 13:04
Cooks - Great news.

I'm dusting down the patio furniture in my shorts, glorious sunshine. I hope it's going to cool down for you lot tomorrow?

Chick - What's the forecast for your mara?
20/04/2013 at 13:28

Congratulations cooks!

Pen 3 for me.

Slow 3 miler with OH this morning in the sun.  Lovely.

Chick - all the best for hamburg - hope you are the first to post a new pb!

Bring.  It.  On.


20/04/2013 at 13:33

yeeeeeaaaahhhh!!!!! Bring it on

Simon: forecast is 1 degree at the start (brrrrr) and a max. of 15. It will be pretty sunny and breezy - all in all pretty good conditions methinks.
