No Pain - sorry to hear your news. I hope you get well soon and fit and strong enough to be in PB form again!

Thanks VikW - by the way, I'm thinking of doing the Amsterdam marathon this year, 2 weeks after our wedding. I'm not planning on drinking alcohol at my own wedding and will be eating healthily. Husband to be (a triathlete) has said I'm allowed too

No Pain, so so sorry to hear your news. Wishing you a very swift recovery!

Vik, I think I need to leave my bank card at home tomorrow too! I've heard dangerous tales about the Expo.

One of my friends has said she'll come down and help the volunteers on Sunday too, I'm not sure if she will be able to make it for 8.30 but she'll be bringing jelly babies with her when she arrives

No pain - gutted for you mate but you've made the right decision!! Hope you get better soon

Newbie - I ran the marathon 2 years ago and had thought long and hard about what time I wanted. I missed it by 7 mins and was absolutely gutted. I couldn't get away from the disappointment despite going from a complete non-runner recovering from a car accident to finishing the marathon four months later. Best not to put that kind of pressure on yourself. Its horrible when you realise you won't make it.

I'd advise running as best you can and make up your mind around 22 - 23 mile mark what time you think you can do. At that stage all you'll want to do is finish and if that's your goal, time will only ever be a bonus.

Xine267 - I was at the expo on Wednesday night and dropped off a bag with my details on it but stupidly I forgot to put which support group I was in. I hope this isn't going to be too much of a problem for you

Thanks for the advice Circus Strongman! I will go out there just to enjoy myself!

20/04/2012 at 16:43

No probs.

My aim this time is to make sure I enjoy it, trained far too hard this time (and last) to be disappointed

Good luck

VikW - Great advice. I have been trying to keep calm all day!

Everyone in work has been so supportive. Just got to get packed up and have an early night; heading down on the 6:45am train tomorrow.

 Hope everyone is feeling good.

Hi Circus Strongman, no problem - I'll keep an eye out for it and make sure we have it ready for you
21/04/2012 at 07:10
just setting off for london now, i cant remember if any of the runners have my mobile number ( as i'm taking it on route with me ) so i'm going to message it to xine 267 ( only cos ur up above me so it will be quicker to scroll back through the other ones ) then i can text someone when i approach mudshute

good luck group 4 i cant eat this morning as so nervous so goodness knows what i'm going to be like tomorrow!!!

Hi gang, expo done and dusted, No pain, tough break but the right move, doesn't make it any easier but the race will be there next year and you will have a stronger desire after missing out.

Right bring on the race.

Pub link with info for Chandos after - we'd love to see you all if you can make it xxx

21/04/2012 at 13:55

Just popping in for a bounce.


Good luck to all our runners. Can't wait to see you. Should we have a bet on which one manages to run right passed without seeing us? There's always one.

Hi guys, I'm chilling in the hotel now after eating a delicious king prawn pasta dish in Soho. I don't want to walk round to much incase I get sore feet!

 Very nervous!

21/04/2012 at 17:57

Good luck everyone!!

see you all at mile 17!!!

21/04/2012 at 18:36
Aw - expo done. Pasta lunch done. Pasta dinner planned and feet up!
No pain - I understand your disappointment and fustration as a similar thing happened to me last year. Stay positive!
Everyone else eeck! See you tomorrow!!!!

Hey guys - your support during my slight breakdown at mile 17 was wonderful. I dont really know what went wrong, but i still managed to finish. No sure if I would have carried on if it wasn't for your kind words and hugs. Definitely think im a better supporter than runner! Will Hopefully be on the other side of the fence next year!

How did everyone else fair?

Hey BN, what happened?

I had a really good run, paced myself till mile 25 when I went pop but then it was only the 1.2 miles to stagger .... Did 4.22 so very very pleased.

So lovely to see you guys, sorry if I appeared a little wild eyed and mad demanding my Viper gels

.. and I'm gutted to get to go for drinks at the end but the crowds totally overwhelmed me and I had to runaway.

22/04/2012 at 22:19

Pingu - you can be as mad demanding as you want.

I confess to deserting my post by getting carried away with a spot of socialising so well done to VikW and Xine for keeping the station going so well.

22/04/2012 at 22:30
Well done BiscuitNikki and Iron Pingu, I was so so proud of both of you! You did amazingly well.
Pingu - don't worry about the gels, you were running a marathon - you were running a marathon! You could demand anything you wanted!

VikW and Soupy, it was great to meet you both. Soup don't be silly, you didn't desert!
I had such a fun time cheering everyone on, I was so pleased to meet Nikki, Pingu, Circus Strongman, Madwelshwoman and Hannahsmomuk - Very proud of you all, you all looked great when you got to us!
