Thanks for the cheer chaps & girlies - I was bang on time and it was a great help! Finished in a decent 3:08 so a good day overall. Good run there GR.

Thank you group 7. You were fab.
Thank you for the jelly babies
Thank you for my hug
Thank you for my motivational talk
And thank you for telling me that I was looking good! (Spans, you are a fantastic liar!!)

My knees (both of them) did go pop quite badly between 22 and 23 so I ran / walked the last few miles and was thrilled to cross the line in 5:05.

Hey Mokina,

Were you the lady wearing the false bum? I finished in 5.25 so we must have stumbled through those last painful miles pretty much sise by side

A big thanks you to the girls of Group 7 (and John). Sadly I failed badly a few miles down the road but still ran/walked/limped to a new PB.

Thanks for being there in the damp.

I,m a little gutted guys, i finished in 4-55 but i confess i somehow missed you when i got to Mudchute. I lost my co-ordination on last mile but i just never saw any runneras world banners.

Sorry folks but thanks evertone for being out in the rain.

I'll get me eyes tested methinks

nigel - no, that wasn't me!!

Many thanks guys for being there - just looking for someone kept me going. Only saw you at the last minute and managed to scream at someone (sorry, whoever that was).

It all went fantastically well until Mile 25 and then the site of Westminster got me and it went a bit wrong. Lots of strong 'I am a steel rod' power walking later and enormous support from the crowd, I made it over.

OT - I went through at 4.56 so we may have gone through at a similar time (did take me 10 mins across the start though).

We must have gone over together as I went through at 4:5:34 and it took me about 10mins to get across the red start

If you saw a woman walking very strangely and running occasionally and the crowd yelling 'Bev' then definitely. The crowd were absolutely fantastic at the end and I couldn't have done it without them - I wanted to personally thank each of them ;-}

Andrew i was at blue start and it took me 20 minutes to get to the start line, and in running terms 10 mins. is a big difference.
I,m just annoyed at myself for not seeing the supporters at Mudchute.

Don't understand how it could have taken you so long. It took me less than 10 minutes to cross the start line and that was from pen number 9 in the blue start!

BBC's coverage confim's 20mins plus to get everyone accross the line at Blackheath.

Evenin' everyone . . just a quick note to say that I've finally got some London Marathon photo's online, including those that Berry took at Mudchute on behalf of RW (thank you Sean Fishpool) . .

big thanks also to Ailsa, CdK, Moomoo, Womble and Snapstinget for sending me their photographs . . and to Trinity for taking some when injured and unable to run and wishing she was anywhere but London that weekend.

sorry it took a little while . . life does have a habit of intruding!!
