Rio - hope it's not too late to thank you for my gels at mile 17.  It was my first Marathon and although I'd hoped to make sub-4, suffered in the heat and finished in 4h33 but without those gels I'd have taken even longer!  I was unable to speak by the time I'd reached mile 17 so hope my sweaty hug wasn't too offputting - you guys did an excellent and most needed job.  Not going to run next year (2 little ones at home and need to spend more time with them - hadn't appreciated how time-consuming training would be) so might come and help for a bit at mile 17 next year.

Thanks again,

 Ben aka Bongerman

It was good to see you Bongerman and the sweaty hug was not a problem.  I look forward to you returning the favour for me next year.   I would love to do 4:30 so be proud of what you achieved in those tough conditions!

Wow GFA?  That would be fantastic!

If you are training for IM the extra strength your legs get from hills on the bike should give you the 4 minutes.  I have 26 to find!!  lol
