sorry , just didnt know what u was
good old caz
i only wish i did
* waves back at B * MWAH
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.
I should be downt eh day before now as I have somewhere to crash - I will soprt a picture out once I have done my roots -not that it is much of an improvement
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...

We'll find out, usually it's elite men followed by elite women and champ start, and then the masses.
However, where you are in the masses can have quite an impact on your gun time. The year I paced for RW, I was put in pen 5/6 as the 9 min mile pacer and there were people in there who were running 11 min miles from the start. Unfair all round. And the congestion in the pack is just so constrictive.
I would say that unless you can clear 3.30 at the very latest, don't even try to get a PR. Just enjoy, it's a great atmosphere.
ayup..got my magazine Blue start Not sure if its worth saying my number but here it is anyway
ok what are the red laces for ?
ohh its only a month away can't wait
Got my magazine today too, very exciting
My number is 221 - I put it down wrong on my earlier post.
OK, let's get this out in the open. I am in the process of separating from my husband. Very early days and it's not public knowledge yet except on here. Hubby resigned from running club in September due to health issues. If I go to the club then everyone asks after him. I'm not ready to tell them that I have no idea how he is doing as although we live in the same house, we haven't properly talked for a month.
It also makes me angry that since he anounced his illness, not one of his running 'friends' has bothered to get in contact with him and ask whether he is OK. He was group leader for three runs a week, membership secretary and also on the committee. Everyone begged him to stay on when he chose to leave, and he won the Chairmans award at Christmas for greatest contribution to the club. He also used to meet a lot of them socially. You would have thought that someone would have made the effort to check on him.
