Looking forward to the party!
Forum name: Zaba
Name Eva surname will come in a later email
Race number: Blue start 15000 something due to paranoia exact number in later email
Estimated time to mile 17: Hoping to du just under 4 hours but realistically under 4.30, so will pass mile 17 between 2.35 to 2.54 probably, although not sure what time I'll pass the start line.
What you'll be wearing: Orange T-shirt with Lepra writing in white, probably a turqouise skirt on top of black tights. Will take photo when outfit arrives and email.
Any special needs*: TLC
No really love Gatorade Lemon which is hard to get hold of in central London but will give this some more thought.
Your doing a brilliant job, thanks.
Good stuff, thanks for organising all this, am also signed up to Fetchpoint and think you people may be under more pressure than us runners even, I mean we only got 26.2 miles to run, you lot have got to spot us all.
Anyway here are my details:
Forum name - MattooName - Matt (Surprisingly)
Race number - 37740Estimated time to mile 17 - Difficult, what time will I start exactly? But hopefully between 2hrs 15 - 2hrs 35What you'll be wearing - http://www.sportysnaps.com/content/running/Llanelli_half_marathon_2010/14500_14959/lhm30551.htm
Will have Matt printed on front of top by then, if is cold/raining will have base layer and tights on.
Any special needs* - Will drop a muffin off at expo on Saturday.
Hope everyone is well this lovely (not hehe) Wednesday and you've all managed your last long runs over the weekend and are now set to taper. I'm so excited to be the 'other side of the fence' this year lol - I crawled my way round the FLM last year in a one time only attempt and so much respect to all you guys this year!
I'll be popping in usually a couple or five times a day so if there's anything you need keep me posted!
Hi guys, not long to go, getting exciting.
This is my 2nd year at the supporters area after running in 2007 and 2008. Looking forward to seeing everyone down there.
Can't wait, getting really excited now
I'll fight you for it Gill! Only kidding, I'm an angel really...................... lol
Now then runners, I'm going to keep a spreadsheet with all your details on and I'll sort it by times expected - and for anyone who's worried, we will be waiting until everyone on the list has gone through so don't worry if you're a bit slower than others we'll still be there
For anyone who isn't planning to stop for long if at all but just wants a wave and a cheer as you go through, please could you make sure you let us know you've gone past if possible? That way we won't get all paranoid if we haven't ticked you off the list and we'll make sure we have everything ready for people if you drop stuff off at the Expo..........please please make sure it's clearly labelled as Barley says with your name, race number and support group.
I'll be the one with the Pinot in one hand and a whistle in the other........!

Pinot in one hand and whistle in the other, I dread to think how your going to hold my muffin
Very carefully lol
And Ian, I'm sure I don't know what you mean.....................hehe!! Are you sure the Zurich vests are yellow this year, they were blue last year
maybe blue then - I would know if I had it! Apparently it is in the post...
Look out carefully tonight and you will see me heading out in a lovely red and white vest just to get used to the idea
lashing it down when I did this run last week as well - only 10.86 miles (approximately) - will have a good look at Mudchute as I go past!
Don't fancy practicing your support act at about 6pm tonight do you - I reckon that's when I'll be heading up eastferry road
Sadly I'll be on a warm dry train about then !
Right I'm off, back later tonight - hopefully we'll have some more of our runners on then!!!
