Speedy I was thinking about following a 10min mile pacer think that would be a 4 hours 30 finish, that's the paceband I downloaded. But hey who knows on the day.
mr pippitypop is reading the marathon magazine, he has been sorting out the logistics for the day. Now telling me all about the places I will be running past, and even saying that its going to be a stressfull day being a spectator, what to wear. were to stand etc....... but not quite as stressfull as running it !! he is making me very,very scared
sioney glad you are on the mend
Pippity-Poppity - Mr Snail and I have just worked out the logistics for him, our 2 daughters, my sister, her hubby and 2 daughters, and my mum, for the day. It seems to be far more complicated being a spectator, especially when the youngest of the kids is only 2 and my mum can't walk far! I will of course be sorting them out with a bag containing snacks, jackets etc etc before I toddle off to run the marathon. I will warn Mr Snail to get them all to avert their eyes if he spots any mankinis ...
The kids are having a sleepover with grandparents so we spend the time sorting out marathon stuff. Should be off down the pub making the most of not needing a babysitter but the weather is so awful we're not fussed about going out!
There was a guy wearing a mankini in the Dublin Marathon. Unfortunately i was behind him for a couple of minutes. I was desperately trying to overtake him but it was about the 22 mile mark and my legs weren't responding very well.
I was relieved when i passed him. Not a pretty sight although he got a lot of attention from the crowd
