Hi KK. I'm astmatic so I will make sure that I have my ventolin with me, but probably a good idea for you to supply your own to be on the safe side. You're a pro at this you you know the routine.
Those of you that we don't know, it would be nice if you could provide a photo of you in your kit as it makes it easier for us to spot you.
Better get my train tickets hadn't I

Name: Suz Number: tba Wearing: tba Mile 17: not sure, maybe around 3 hours (I hope you're still there!) Special needs: possibly some new legs.... Hmm, this seems to highlight that I don't seem very organised! How do you know your number? Thanks very much in advance to the supporters, very much looking forward to seeing you!
Wow, we have some speedy runners in our group! But don't worry if you are a slower runner. We will be there until everyone on our list has passed through no matter how slow they are - even if they have a bad day and turn up two hours after expected.
Thanks for all the information guys. Keep it coming.
For those who are new to this, you can leave items at the expo that you want us to have for you at Mudchute. We will have ample supply of the basics such as jelly babies, but if you have anything specific then we can sort that out for you. When I ran London I was nervous about carrying too much around with me, so I left sports drink and gels at the expo and my team had them ready for me. In the past people have asked for cups of tea, painkillers, cans of beer etc.
If you leave anything at expo, you hand it in at the Runners World stand, labelled up with your support group number and who you are. One of us will collect it on the Saturday afternoon and arrange for it to get to Mudchute.
