So it seems like a lot of the things I would normally shout as encouragement to all you FLMers are verboten.

So, what DO you want to hear from us lot at mile 18?

I just want a gin and a hug

dont speak to me
12/04/2004 at 09:59
Just tell me I'm doing really well - regardless.

12/04/2004 at 10:18
you can do it! you can do it!

I don't care what every you want to shout will help me....a bit of abuse usually works well;-)

The best crowd support I experienced last year was a chunk of dairy milk!
"you're looking good!" always works for me, but thats probably vanity

God knows what will help my by mile 18! Just please don't shout "only another 8 miles" or I think I will lose all motivation and forward motion and collapse in a heap.

Perhaps "well done" or "you can do it". Don't think I would believe "you're looking good" as I know I will be looking anything but!

How about "Jonny Wilkinson's only 100 yards ahead of you"?
12/04/2004 at 12:34
Hmmm, that might work!!

The first time I ran it, Dr Fox off the radio was ahead of me, and the cheering for him motivated me, I didn't want to let someone who (no offence) is a bit of a podgy bloke beat me.

The fist time I did FLM there was a guy about 80 in the background (well about 10 feet behind me) of my finish photo, didnt dare show that one to my mates.

Nope, I overtook him - and Frank Bruno :o)

Bear, was that 2000???

Bloody Frank Bruno was causing grid-lock in the Docklands!!

Celebs, eh!

Any person who has spotted me personally in the crowd and shouts at ME, will give me a lift. Hence the name on the vest.

"HEY BALDIE, those went out of fashion years ago!" Means that I have been spotted. It will also wake me up out of my stupor.

Anything accurate is good :-)
8 miles to go--its walk in the park :-) to :-(
You look like shi.e - have a drink and pull yerself together :-)
Concentrate - Keep it together :-)
I've just seen Nell MacAndrew :-P
Anyone seen Barnsley? ;-)
What fecon time d'yer call this? Gerra move on! :-(
Tower Bridge is only 4 miles :-|
You're on the home run now! :-)

You can beat the fairy - is always a good one. Last time I did FLM it was like a Midsummer Night's Dream. Like blessed mosquitos they were.

Either dress as a middle aged women with a clip board and say:
"Have you got a minute to fill in this survey"

Or dress as a 23 year ex-student with a tabard on and say:
"Are you interested in giving to charity"

Guaranteed to get people running faster away from you :-)

"Well done mate. You can do it" works for me...

AA - yes, 2000, but I think he runs it every year.
