Oh arse, I really can't suss this one out. If I'm planning to do 4 hours (planning being the operative word) when will I be at mile 17 for a sweaty hug?

KateF, I am also on sub 4 plan. I'll watch out for you.

Morning all,

Elm, VLM is just the best place to do your first marathon. You'll enjoy the whole experience

13/04/2011 at 09:13
now the taper madness REALLY begins! First day of the Expo

Morning everyone,

Kate F - You should be at the 17 mile mark at 12.20 but could be a bit later than this assuming it takes a while to get over the start.

13/04/2011 at 09:34
It looks like the weather is improving for Sunday
13/04/2011 at 09:40

Cheers for the info on the course elevation!

 I did Mablethorpe last Oct and at mile 20 a slight incline seemed like a mountain!

Does everyone recommend using the baggage train?

I was just going to dump some old clothes at the start, but if I'm getting there early I may take some more kit with me

Morning People, good its getting busy round here now

Oooh how exciting the barriers are going up, the morning weather forecast are now giving marathon updates as well

Hi Ex-pat-scot - another speedy runner    

Hi Elm, welcome to the thread. I did see your other thread, about photo id.  Take as much documentation as you can.  Do you have a work pass with a picture, hopefully if you take enough stuff they will realise it is you.

The baggage train is good, Tony.  I had left loads of stuff in my bag, including phone and my good running glasses altough that was a mistake as it was a scorcher!  Altho if there is anything that you really wouldn't want to loose, then don't put it in bag.  The bags are all there ready and waiting for you when you get to the other side.  I didn't have to wait any time at all to get my bag back.  I would also recommend putting some treats in it for the other side.  The first thing I pulled out of the goodie bag was Jelly Babies, I was like if I see another Jelly Baby again .  The minstrals in my kit bag, went down a treat tho

Went to the Expo today - so exciting (first timer for London - first time marathon in fact!) - spent a small fortune and made myself leave before buying anything else!!

Left Jaffa cakes & jelly babies at RW stand

Barriers going up - it really is happening this weekend isn't it???!!!

13/04/2011 at 17:06
