Oh I best have a Jaffa cake off B just to keep the continuity from 2 years at the Beachy Head Marathon Thanks B

DL, you don't need to worry about what to wear just yet.  Plenty of time.  Some people already know that they are running in club colours or charity vest and it helps us to find you if we know what you look like.

I calculate that you should be with us after about 3:15 if you are aiming for a 5 hour finish.

Jaffa cakes will certainly be on the list of basic stock TommyGun

Marshalling and handing out jaffa cakes at Beachy is a marvellous ploy to avoid running it again Tommy - shh don't tell anyone

DL - I looked out of my window yesterday morning, saw snow, and put on a long sleeve top under my club vest for Ashby. I regretted it mightily. I was boiling! And I wasn't even racing, I ran it as a training run. I won't make *that* mistake in London. Club vest and shorts.

If you're running to your limit, no matter if that limit is a 2 hour marathon or a 6 hour marathon, if you are pushing yourself as hard as you can you will get hot, whatever the weather. Better to be cold when you're standing round at the start than too hot and uncomfortable for x hours out on the course.

Completely agree with Speedy Goth.  I always race in one layer less than I would train in for the same weather.

I also agree, I was flipping freezing for the first mile of this mornings run, mind the sunrise was nice at 5.35am HH base layer and t-shirt and shorts for me nearly all winter, had to put the long tights on and gloves a few times but not that many.

Welcoming Ratzer to our group. *waves*

 *waves back*

Right, here.  (Lunch over...)

Name: Paul
Number: No idea
Time: Well, I'm not in the easy starts because I haven't earned it, so it'll be get to start, + overtaking usual guy in the diver suit, plus 1:57-2:02
Wearing: Club vest - wine red with a thick white band around belly.  The wine is more of a bordeaux than a burgundy, lighter and fruitier, without the heavy tannins of the fuller bodied bottles.  I'll find and post a piccie somewhere.
Special Needs: Someone to run the last 9 miles for me.

Urm, not sure whether we can meet that last request.  I'll put a call out for volunteers, but you do realise that they will get the goodie bag and medal.  Do you really want to miss out on the free lipbalm and vouchers for products that you will never want to buy?

I guess you're right, I always do look forward to getting a plastic bag shoved into my already sweaty hand, containing such richly running related items as tea bags, £400 off a sofa, and the inevitable moisturiser (don't put it on the chaffing until a day has passed!).

Okay, I'll change that...
Special Needs: Someone to run the first 17 miles for me.

I will be looking something like this:

I expect there will be far more runners around me and there might not be a smile.

Thank you

Photos do help if we don't already kow you.  KK, everytime I see photos of you (not sure that we have actually met) you look different.

In fact I don't think I have met any of my group before, other than B.

20/03/2012 at 16:30

KK's kitchen is thoroughly intriguing.  Are those boxing gloves up there?  Really not sure what you do with that silver thing.  And the cereals in plastic boxes on the fridge??  Do you run a B&B, KK?

Oops, off topic.  Erm, I mean, good training today, everyone.  Well done!

PS. Looking at the list, I've never met anyone - so supporters, please post your pics too!  I know it'll be easier because you'll be in one location, but for the day before at the Expo, and the drinks after.  Privacy be damned, but exceptions for people who don't like being stalked will be allowed.

I'm struggling to find a photo of me without a swimming hat

Empty boxes, kids cookery set, a juicer and yes cereals in boxes on the fridge. As for running a B&B, I feel like I do sometimes!
