Mudchute Live 17 April
Morning all!!!!!! Was lovely to see you all at 17 you all looked pretty good considering how hot it was!!!!!
Hope you had uneventful journeys home and are not feeling it too much today - unlike yours truly who got totally sozzled, went the wrong way on the tube line and managed to go a over t on the platform oh well, I have a reputation to maintain you know!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to Loon and Bear for joining the Super Sevens to help us out, and Gilly it was, as always, a pleasure
Congratulations to all our runners, you are all stars xxxxxxxx
Hi all, well done to all our runnes. You did a fantastic job, it was hot out there.
RH I almost missed you but caught your name on your back and gave you a few loud cheers.
Well done Kate, glad you were feeling good at mile 17.
Nik and Longboat we enjoyed the sweaty hugs.
Thanks to Loon and Bear for joing our support group.
I like SBH got a bit sozzled, lucky enough Barlos and Schmunkee were going back to MK, so they saw me home. I've got sunburt arm and neck and no voice left today Was a great day.
Well done to all our runners
I'm a little embarrased to say that i didn't find you . Maybe I did - I don't know but there seemed to be a lot of balloons around the 17 mile mark so I spent the whole time waving at everyone. To be fair I didn't even see the houses of parliament so I must have been in my own little world!
As a first time London marathoner all i can say is What an Event! The support out there is absolutely phenomenal.
Well done to all yesterday & thanks GillyMac and SBH.
Hi Gilly1709 if you saw lots of balloons and heard lots of noise you probably saw us. It is easy to miss amongst all the support groups along the route. Glad you had a good time, it is an amazing event
Thank you so so much at Mudchute.
After I had stomach cramps and urgent 'trot stop' at 15m I had been pretty bleaurgh and then I got to you guys.
Just seeing the balloons appear had me smiling before I got to you.
I had a fun day in all and was lovely to catch up with some in Chandos later.
I'm sure I did see you all. I'd loved to have stopped for a hug but I wouldn't have got going again. I'll probably do London next year but if I don't I will definately join you at 17. It's exactly where you need that boost, cheer, hug jelly baby, whatever. It really helps.
If not I'd love to be in this group again - and I'll make sure i find you this time.
hehe it is the best group I will be there again if I'm not running. It really put me in the mood this year and I will be entering the ballot next week. If I do it I will defenitely be stopping for hugs.
Sioux glad to be of help.
You were great, thanks for the sweaty hugs and kisses too. Was lovely to stop and have a gel and drink with you. Sorry for being early GM, not sure how that happened because I definitely wasn't ahead of plan, must have been an error on my behalf. Did wonder why you were asking if I wanted vaseline, wish you had pointed my bleeding nipples out to me, I had no idea until I looked down a mile or so down hte road.
Am gutted I didn't venture down to see you all in Chandos, managed to get a table for the family upstairs with Fetchies and never entered the downstairs bar. Oh well will just have to do it again next year.
Anyway thanks again you were awesome, was so looking forward to mile 17 and was well worth it.
Hi sorry Mattoo, would have been more forceful with the vaseline if I'd realised. I wasn't sure if you had realised and it wasn't bothering you. Or if I'd point them out and then it would start bothering you if you know what I mean. Hope it wasn't too bad.
Some good pics the supporters and of group 7 here
There's a good one of me at 7.
mattoo- good to meet you in Chandos.
It's all a bit of a blur so will just have to do it again next year.
A belated thanks to everyone involved in this! Not sure who I met at mile 17 has I think I was delirious with the heat! Us Northerns only get one day a year like that (We call it summer)
Do you think that next year I can request cooler weather?
just back from a few days away.
A big thanks to all of you @ 17m
i really did need you all, I was in a bad way by then
A huge thanks to whoever it was who txt Mrs LL for me, she did get the message
