Good luck everyone..
We'll make it official later
I won't need anything other than a shout and a wave so I hope nobody minds
Hello! Getting properly excited now. Probably won't need anything specific except an extra big cheer and perhaps a photo if you can manage it (massive narcissist, but not quite massive enough to buy the official race photos). It's my first marathon and I signed up for this before doing most of my training so didn't know whether I'd need anything or not, but the extra support will be very welcome!

Hi guys! Really looking forward to being able to give back to the Mudchute group again this year
Bear and Tommygun I already know, but Kat, I don't think I've come across you before. I look forward to meeting you on the day.
If it is ok with the other supporters I will set up a shreadsheet of everyone's details to get us started.
Welcome to the runners too. There are a few familiar faces there but also a good selection of new people. We are here to make your big day something special, so please let us know what we can do for you
Mr P, it will be great to see you. I've added you to my list and you better stop for a quick hug!
Welcome literatin and Night Nurse. Looks like we have some speedy runners this year. You might even get to see us sober
You mean you can't get p*ssed in over 2 hours? How disappointing.
I'll try my best
Last year I had to leave at 6am to get there in time. I think the first thing I drank all day was the cup of coffee after we had got everything else set up, then we started on the wine. I don't think I ate anything all day except maybe some cake and a couple of jelly babies
Missed all the fun last year as I was running the thing, wont be making that mistake again
Yeah, have to say I'm slightly rethinking my 'gruelling 26.2 mile run' choice when the other option was 'cake and wine all day'.
Not ALL day literatin. I think I moved onto cider when we got to the pub afterwards
I'll be stopping for a sweaty hug SuperCaz (even though I'm not in this group)
Who is likely to get there first, me or Cake?? (probably Cake).
I suspect that you will Vixx. Rumour has it that Cake has been slacking on training and spending his time... er... eating cake. That doesn't sounds quite right somehow
We weren't too far from each other at Manchester last year, so it could be there or thereabouts He'll possibly still get there before me
Is anyone here going to be at the Expo on Thursday ?
Sorry to say that I will not be able to make it to London this year Its my mothers 70th Birthday and we have arranged a big family lunch for her down in Dorset.......for some reason I had it in my mind that it was on the 28th but have just realised its on the same day
Oh Tommy! I was really looking forward to seeing you again. So so disappointed
