Introducing First Timer Craig (aka BoDuke)
Well done to all 3 of you and all in different ways and with different race challenges. Enjoy your recoveries and hold the good memories.
Well done to all you VLM finishers a real achievement.
ENJOYED the videos of Paris very professional and no tears!!! SHame........all very cool............well done!!
Ten - you could run there instead ???
Louisa - great result, well done, enjoy your recovery
reikrabbit - know what you mean about the crowds in the last half of the race...I'd managed to rein my pace in during the first half of the race rather than go off too fast like I've been known to so as not to burst towards the end and so by half way I still felt pretty good and was keeping up with my target pace, and then that's where other runners were starting to walk...I totally ran into the back of one person when he just stopped suddenly right in front of me - quite comical now I look back . Then spent the next 5 miles dodging people as they slowed to walk suddenly. Kept me alert for sure. The hours flew by though enjoying the atmosphere - flew by much faster than they did in training!
Ten - ha ha actually the marathon didn't come up in conversation at all during the pitch, but lots of chat with my colleagues about it on the train to the meeting once they saw me hobbling through Paddington at 8 this morning . And oh no about your car!!! typical!
SB: the loo queues were impressive, but more impressive was how quickly people were in and out of them once the guy on the tanoy announced it was just 10 minutes til the start of the race . What was worse were the crowds at the meet and greet - I heard one runner get quite livid when a spectator walked over his feet! It was madness, but then I guess to be expected with an event that size. Great day though..still smiling.
I agree with you Susiebuzz...Craig is a Superstar!!!
Oh, and yes I have a little sun burn round my neck...forgot my cap would only protect my head and face .
I onl just heard about that lady...shocking
Had some issues in finding the time to reply... First day back at work. But well done all!!! Have been milking the video for all it's worth though
RR: Not rolling out of bed, a better time than it might have been and you could deal with stairs!!! Nice. Thanks for the not about the Mall. from me for that.
Louisa: How emotional and brilliant. You are a marathon runner!!! Well done! I found people randomly stopping to be an issue after the third one, started to pay attention then in an attempt not to be anti-social. Very professional in the pitch, I would have been: 'look, I ran a bloody marathon yesterday, just buy it, please, I need to go sit down somewhere and eat stupid amounts of food'.
Susie: Good work on hanging in there and getting over the line! You deserved that hug, bet he was nearly as emotional as you.
Ten: bummer on the car mate. I know that pain...
mcs: Got out for 4 miles v easy this morning and had 3 vvvvv slowly last Friday. Will slowly build up the miles and back into the game. Bring on the summer!!!
You folks are amazing and total heros!!!!!!! Well done.
Ten - thanks, i better start thinking seriously about next years plans - hard to do at moment cos i'm so focussed on getting ready for a week on Sunday
You must be getting excited as this is your week !!! can't wait for next week to arrive now.
