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

Morning all - thanks for the cheering at mike 17, was feeling good so didn't stop in for a cider. I'll be joining you on the other side of the fence next year, the race was just too busy for me.

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 not to worry about missing us there were an awful lot of balloons around yesterday!!!! We were yelling at everyone so you would have had plenty of very vocal support even if we didn't get a hug
18/04/2011 at 14:38

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

18/04/2011 at 18:36
thanks all - I was in a world of pain at 17, and your cheers made a big (if temporary) lift. Cheers
18/04/2011 at 19:28
If its any comfort ex-pat we all said how good we thought you looked!!!
18/04/2011 at 19:31
Yeah u were flying past.

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.

18/04/2011 at 23:30
Oh that's lovely! We def have the best runners y'know I shall definitely be planning to be there again next year I'm going for my hat trick next year! Lol
19/04/2011 at 09:09

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. 

19/04/2011 at 09:39

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.

19/04/2011 at 10:09

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

Is fine Gilly, really didn't bother me. will look at those photos now.
19/04/2011 at 19:40

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?

Thanks again,


22/04/2011 at 23:57

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
