OOOPS - that should obv read 2013 in the title.................................
*sticks head round door*
Maybe you are just early Sister Bad Habit?
Although you are group 5, I shall still be giving out hugs to other supporters if they wish?
Hello to my fellow groupies
How are you?
I don't have any special requirements either - except maybe some flat coca-cola, which always works well at that point in the race.
Hi Glenn and Go Caz. Good luck for Brighton Glenn - are you ready for it?
Helloooooooo, lovely Group 4!!! 'Tis I, one of your cheerleaders
Let's make this the liveliest of the Gropes....yes, you did read that correctly! We offer gropes as well as hugs to our lovely runners, so be prepared.....
I don't mind a grope or a hug. I am just more bothered that I will be leaving people covered in sweat! :S
I'm going to the Expo on Friday as Saturday will be chaotic at best methinks. I just want to make sure I have my number most of all!
Flat coca cola - that sounds good. But I suppose it would be asking for trouble to try something new at this point!
Try it on a short run Go Caz. I tried it for the first time when I did the Frankfurt Marathon in 2009 and it is pretty great as an alternative to Lucozade and gels. I'd run out of water a couple of miles previously (I carry my own) and got topped up with water and Coca-Cola and it really picked me up.
Just popping in from rival Group 1 to stir up a bit of trouble.
Vixx, I better get a grope too, and I don't mind sweat. I'll be getting one of Cake's famous sweaty hugs so a little bit of dampness from you will go unnoticed
You will, don't worry! I know how sweaty Cake can get I don't think I am that bad
Khanivore - there's still time to try out something when you do a long-ish taper run over the next couple of weeks. It doesn't need to be a full on banquet, but maybe try a piece of mars bar or something and see how that works?
I can't remember what my race number is at this point and am not at home to look. I look nothing like my profile pic here anymore and don't know how to get a pic small enough to change it. (I've been on here that long....)
I am universally known as Vixx though, and I will either be wearing a black t-shirt or a red one, depending on my mood
Less than 2 weeks now - how is everyone feeling?
