Wow the sign looks great Vik! Great job
Jo and PR - we will be waiting for you and ready to supply hugs, cheers, jelly babies and gels as needed! I think you are amazing for doing the marathon with an injury, don't worry about the time it takes to get to Mile 17, just think that after you see us you'll only have single digits to go!
I went to the Expo last night and couldn't find the RW stand! I know I was only there for a bit but gutted I couldn't find you guys...
actually, that's a good point! I couldn't find the RW world stand in the picture in the mag.
I am so nervous as this is my first ever marathon. One year ago I was a couch potato and my best effort at running was 5km in 45 mins (which is essentially a walk).
Finished the Brighton half fairly comfortably in 2:10 this year and a recent 10k in 54 mins, so really not sure what to expect timing wise this weekend.
Going to need all the support I can get this Sunday. I have pacer wrist bands from 04:10 to 04:30 and still deciding which one to use
Although I keep telling myself it would be a great achievement just to finish, I think subconsciously I would like to do it in round about 04:30 (RW Race predictor says I should be capable of it) and I am afraid I'd be disappointed if I do it too slow. Any help with my mindset? I think I need a shrink
RW Stand is number 148 at the Expo. I haven't been yet, but a couple of my friends went yesterday & today and found it for me (so they could enter the Saucony Kinvara contest for me ).
Did any of you get photos taken with your race numbers in the photobooth? I'm noticing a lot of them appearing on FB!
Newbie32 - Welcome!
Why don't you condense your pace bands down to show every 3 miles? Have your 4.10 time in red and the 4.30 time in black?
It's good to have a time in mind, but don't focus on it so much that you don't get a chance to enjoy the day. It's your first attempt at doing this distance in race conditions, so it's bound to be a bit of a learning curve too
Thanks Xine and Hannahsmom. Hope to see some of you at the start line! This is me.
Hannah - click on the "insert image" tag ..looks like a tree............. above! Upload your image, needs to be websized I think!
I'm off to London in the morning...Expo by lunchtime I hope...RW drop off...pasta and shopping!
The RW stand is definitely there Just a reminder to anyone leaving stuff for collection that mark RW on it as well as your group/number/name as the Fetchies also have a collection there and I remember it was all jumbled up last year.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday
i wont be cheering anyone
i'm gonna stand the and LMAO
No Pain - really sorry to hear about your injury, take care.
Mick - LOL..feel free...I will be a right sight by the time I get to 17!
I hope ti get to london today, the plan was to be on the train this morning but my middle daughter who has been very for the last year had a really bad night, been up with her since 01.30, so will have to see how things pan out today.
In case I don't get back on here...have agreta run/support/laugh everyone! Look forward to seeing you at 17
Oh bad luck No Pain, I'm sure next year you'll come back stronger and faster
Is anyone else getting the impression that that Mick is a trouble maker ..... you're going to have to watch him on the day
