Hi Fbgf and Fishy,

I'm in my 3rd FLM and still looking for that elusive sub-4hr.

Got a photo with local press/Team Rep for the Plymouth team on Tuesday- can I lose a stone by then........

Hi FbgF,

Not sure if that will be possible ;-) but if you mention you're planning to lose a stone by the FLM then you could arrange a photo shoot after the event as well. Maybe the paper could do a monthly progress article.

Hope the shoot goes well

Hi, I'm running for Macmillan too. FBGF, I'll see you in the slow lane! Is anyone planning on going to the Golden Bond seminar this weekend in London?

I'll be runnig for them as well, also my 3rd FLM. Hoping for sub 3:10 after 3:16 last year.
The support team are fantastic, from the pasta meal, the supporters on the route & through to the recovery centre (with leg massage) at the end.

Hi Tempo, hope the training is going well.

Baz, good luck with the sub 3:10; I'm still looking for the elusive sub 4, my last FLM (2003) so me crossing the line 23 secs over!! Never was any good at maths ;-)

Cheers ATO
Know the feeling on just missing out. My run last was 95 seconds off getting a good for age time & guaranteed entry. Felt even worse when I didn't get in through the ballot & only just scraped in with one of the 2 club places that we got.

Surely there must be more Macmillan runners out there somewhere.

Hi ATO - my training is not going too badly thanks, I don't think I'm quite in yours and Baz's league but I'm getting there slowly. I've been hearing bad things about 'runner's trots' though - do you know anything about it or how to avoid it?!

You're right Baz, there must be more Macmillan people...

Hello all,

I'm another Macmillanite - hoping to go sub 4 (was 15 mins over last year, so a little way to go)- still training is going quite well so far!

good luck to you all..

Hello all

Yes, Macmillan for me. Did GNR 2004 for them and the support was brill. Really look forward to running for them again. Hoping for 3.30-4hrs. My first marathon after loads of halfs, 10m, 10k etc.

I ran for them in 2002 and 2004(GB), and the support was great. I'm being very quiet sponsorwise this year as I've got a GFA place.
You guys have not been forgotten, keep it all up.

Hi, I'm running for Macmillan also! My first Marathon, in fact first race whatsoever...hopeing to do a race before April to get some practice in. Been held up with ITB a little, but ran my first 13 miler last night which went OK. Would like to go under 4 hours of course but thats probably too optimistic...will see how training goes over the next few weeks...

Hi, I'm running for Team Mac. First Marathon. Hoping for 4 1/2. I live in Southampton. Running Winchester 10k in two weeks, Silverstone half on 13th March. I choose Team Macmillan cos My mum got diognosed (Spelling????) with liver cancer in july last year. 7 Month battle but peacefully passed on the 5th of this month. Doing the whole thing for her.

KJ3 - I'm sure your mum would be really proud of you. How is your training going?

I ran for Macmillan last year and thought the support was great - havent actually started fundraising yet but having completed the Stamford 30k on Sunday, I now feel confident I am on course - so I shall be starting very soon!

It is sooo cold today...

KJ3 - Good for you mate. My Mum was diagnosed with lung cancer last July, like yours. She's battled and battled, gone through chemo and its already back. We don't know how long we have, but she's still with us at the moment. I know exactly how it is mate and I wish you all the very best with your training. It'll be emotional on the day. I did the GNR last year for Mum and was blubbering at the end when I rang her! Whatever the circumstances, I'll be the same again after FLM.

The great thing is that Macmillan make it all seem worthwhile and special.
