Morning both.

Admit I'm a bit dehydrated thanks to this little sniffle that I've got at the mo but will keep the fluids up today.  Lots of chores to do but nothing too strenuous planned.

Will likely carry a donut bottle with coke in it (like I did last weekend) to supplement the water.

Sounds like we can have a forum party in the orange pen at the back.  I'll be wearing a turquoise top with Soupy on the front.  Mr Soup has a faster colour but might start at the back with me and he's dressed up as a Thunderbird (or International Rescue operator to be precise, Virgil I think) so you won't miss me.

Kazz - I've been drinking water for the last 2 days but I'm still a bit dehydrated this morning.  Must be the hot weather.  Hope you sniffles are better by tomorrow.  I won't see you for dust after the line I'm sure.

Kaz - are you doing your run before you leave? It's much nicer to run here.

Blimey, running in costume could be interesting tomorrow!  Fair play to him.

Not sure what top I'll be wearing yet but it'll be a Fetch one - Kaz on front and Kazzaaaaah! on back.

Hopefully see you all there at some point

T, my run tomorrow will be the race!  Think that'll constitute a streaksaver

Good luck, Kaz

Kaz - have you had enough pasta?

Have you had enough Pasta, Tracey?

Good luck to you too. I hope it's not too scorchio.

Very nearly paid the price of the stupidly fast pace in the first half but just about had enough in the tank to dip under the 5 (I suspect my half-way chip time tells its own tale!). 

Though I did take them too fast I was really chuffed not to walk at all on the hills going out to Ovingdean - last year they nearly did me in!!

So it's a case of partly achieving things - got the sub-5 but do need to do something about my pacing and fuelling issues.

Thanks again XB.  Being picked for the mentoring has been really fun and has really helped keep me on track and, in no small part, has gone a long way to get my love of running back

Well done Kaz. It was hot out there today.

My old marathon pb was 5:23:57. New Brighton marathon pb 5:17:10. Was really focus in the last miles and a bit.

Well done again T.  That's a cracking chunk off your pb - it was only a matter of time before you made a dent in that one!!

I am full of admiration for what you two achieved today.

You got your sub-5 in the heat and after going 2:15 for the first half. Is that 3 sub-5s now in 2011. You'll have to come back for sub-4:30 next year.

And to get such a huge PB, Tracey, is fantastic. Well done.

I'm really proud of you cos I know it's not been an easy build up but when the going got tough the tough really did get going.

well done Kaz, and Tracey too - sounds like it was a tough day in that heat!
10/04/2011 at 20:45

Well done Kazz and Tracy.  It was tough out there today.  Lovely to meet you at the start this morning.   What a great event.

XB, that was #4 - only Winter Enigma and day 2 of the Quad have been over 5.  4 out of 6 so far - can't complain really

I sort of have sneaky goals for 4.30ish by the end of the year but need to get on top of a few things before that happens!

Kaz & Tracey I expect to see your names down for the sub 4.30's next year 
10/04/2011 at 20:53

Well done Kaz, it was v hot out there.

I hung out for a while with Fat Buddha afterwards but didn't know where anyone else was socialling....

Maybe Melds, maybe

Mike, Mava and I had a quick pint at the bar just outside the finish funnel and then headed back to the park and ride.  Mava tried to call you guys but had no signal
