Name: Karen
Number: don't know yet
Time: before dark or before everyone goes home - I joke not
Wearing: not sure yet but thinking about getting my tee shirt printed on the front to say 'Am I there yet' will let you know if I do.

Seriously I may not make the start and if I do I doubt I will make mile 17 far less the finish so if this is the case would I be able to get someone's mobile number so I could text to let you know so no one is waiting needlessly ? Feel free supporters to PM me with it and I will let you know why I am saying this.

It is odd when someone you assumed was male turns out to be femaleor vice versa! I definitely have two eyes, they are shortsighted tho, so I wear specs and have dark hair ...

Helloo! Thank you so much for allowing me into your group

  • Forum name: Fizzipop
  • Name: P-T
  • Race number: TBA
  • Mile 17: Errrrm, this is my first, so no idea. Maybe around the 3hr mark?
  • Wearing: A green Macmillan vest with (hopefully) "P-T" on the front and back. Haven't decided anything below the waist yet, except for my brilliant neon yellow shoes!
  • Special needs: An instant teleporter beam to the finish? Otherwise, I'm good!

I have no photos of myself in my planned racegear, but I did find a rather unattractive photo of me from two years ago, at my first (and only) half marathon!

Speedy G, I've sent you a PM.  If anyone else wants my mobile number then PM me.  Also if anyone doesn't want to put their details on a public forum then you can PM them to me.

Not sure there's much else to do until the week before B.

I'm making cake for the supporters.  Any preference to flavour B and Madge?

Exciting KK!  I don't suppose you can tell me what times the various starts are?  The official web site doesn't appear to have them, helpfully.

Evening all

Marathon magazine arrived today - how jolly exciting - blue start for me - with the elites. Well not 'with' exactly - fenced off and hidden from view - with a few thousand people separating us.

Did enjoy the comment some pages back about the difference between 'training' outfit and 'racing' outfit because of the effort levels involved. I have only have the one pace/effort - super slow/nuclear fusion red and sweaty feeling I'm about to die. I know I'll only really need vest and shorts but I'm worried about being a tad chilly at the beginning and at mile 23 - 5 hours in when my leg falls off and I'm staggering slowly to the light at the end of the tunnel..... can you tell I'm feeling supremely confident!?

Will look through some recent 'race' photos and try and find one that hasn't got 'copyright' stamped all over my face to give you an idea of what I look like. The only person I managed to 'spot' when I was supporting at mile 17 last year was Rob who was dressed as a giant nurse - everyone else just threw themselves at us in a sweaty heap

Ooh, will my magazine be waiting at home when I get there tomorrow?

Difference between training outfit and racing outfit?
Men - training outfit shows off everything as tightly as possible, racing outfit is purely practical.
Women - training outfit is purely practical for getting lost on Snowdon in winter, racing outfit shows off everything as tightly as possible.

I haven't done London before.  The cold bit before the start, how long do you wait, and how do you keep warm?  Bin bags and rip them off when the gun goes?  I can make a great shell-suit out of bin bags.  They sell a version of it at my local Primarni...
