The whole day was brilliant but I have to say when I ran past at 18 miles, you were so brilliant in cheering and give me support. You were so loud it really lifted me. I couldn't talk and was very tearful as I ran on. No way I could have stopped, as I would seize up, sorry.

You all are superstars and Thanks for contributing to a remarkable day in my eyes. Never forget it.

The only sad thing is that I didn't stop to meet you.

Give yourself a round of applause.

We are all so proud of you. We could believe it when you came past with the elite. It made my day too :-)

RRR and Monique (and all the other URWFRC) myself and Little Miss Mophead had a wonderful time cheering you all on. Well done!

Great to meet the other forumites, thanks for making us so welcome, and thanks to Ashley for all the organisation.

Nearly tempted to give it a go myslef next year.

Sorry we missed you Lee, we stayed til the last 'recorded' forumite had gone past but I did feel bad that there were still runners going past. We really wanted to see everyone at the thistle and frankly were all dying for the loo :-)

Thanks guys, I was going through a bad patch at the time and your cheers certainly made me go faster (for about 50 yards anyway)

Mophead - great to meet you, and Miss Mophead is a star!!

I've said it elsewhere but I'll say it again - brilliant support guys. Loudest cheer I've ever had!

Echo Murf, you were superb, I was definitely emotional lots of times around the course including there.

Sorry, couldn't make Thistle afterwards; running partner felt unwell and then we makde for the train, but really enjoyed meeting lots of you Sat night, wished I had been staying there and could have spent hours nattering and talking to everyone I wanted to meet.

Well I had a great day and my voice is so sore,,, lack of fluids I think should have brought another couple of bottles of bubbly with me!

It was a fantastic day for spectators but I dread to think what it was like having to run in it.

Christopher and I really enjoyed it and my thanks go out to all the supporters for the sweets, bananas Jaffa cakes etc.

I have someones scissors and a tube of gel (given to the runner with cramp). Let me know who you are and I will forward them to you.

Next year though I have challenged my brother in law to a dual since he beat me this year by 4 minutes!

all of you at Mudchute having a great time.... just be grateful for all the hard work us runners put in to allow you to support us !!!!!!!!!!!

Ashley, a truly grateful thank you - the support WAS fantstic (except that both times I got a hug from Badger, my heart rate monitor went off the scale and 100 yards down the road I had to stop to recover ) !!!!!!!!!
Thanks also to Badger, Jon, Josie J Spans and every one of you supporters whoever you were !!!!!

Ahhh

My Gel!!!!

Was cursing poor woman for running off with it!!!!

You keep it Ashley, I'll get some more this week. It's very good :-)

Thanks to everyone it was the only thing that kept me going knowing that you would be there at 18 miles to cheer me on.
14/04/2003 at 06:24
I agree. I found it so important and motivating knowing when the next set of people would be there to cheer me on.

I thought I had missed them at Mudchute but I realised I hadn't when I ran past them. Very uplifting.

Didn't do anything for my emotions.

What I mean by "didn't do anything for my emotions", I mean it made me very tearful and emotional BTW.

Read that and it sounded incorrect and the opposite to what I meant and offensive !!!
