The slight lack of knowledge of the interviewer makes me laugh, you can almost hear the cogs turning...
"Here we are at the blue area with the....
[oh feck, who are the people at the blue area?]
... with the elite runners and the ordinary runners....

In case anyone's interested, the Radio London interview is here - click on London Marathon x days left to listen, it starts around 35.17 with my (non Pirate) Just Tom (as he's now been christened), followed by the rest of us (Jaffa was shy though).....
I couldn't allow myself to be heard on radio on Sunday morning....... I only said I was popping out for a newspaper
Just Tom deserves to be a pirate, I was in awe when he got out his pre-race nutrition of smokey bacon crisps & a garage bacon & egg sannie.
Just Tom's great - he normally tries to sneak in a few beers the night before a race as well....
Debbo - I was the one who made the comment about running together - I have a cold at the mo, which makes my voice even deeper and manlier. Erm......
LOLOL. The interviewer sounded very non-plussed at Ironman. It was almost a 'yeah, yeah, Ironman yadda, yadda, yadda but what about the MARATHON?
HH, we should set up a new thread in dedication. 'You are the interview slayer'.
Still got her leg higher than any of us can manage..... real afalete
Is Just Tom single by any chance????
You can fill me in over our coffee tomorrow, HH. If I remember correctly they do nice looking cake there too...

HH - apologies for missing your deep manly voice on the interview
That's coz he minces his words, too
Kanga - so we still can't rid of you, even by sending you to the colonies
she really didn't know what was going on did she!
I loved the fact that she gave "just Tom" a pair of headphones and started the interview with him, then just turned around and interviewed the rest of us leaving the earphones on Tom who was looking increasingly concerned that he may be throttled by the cord!
I think Jaffa legged it when he saw the microphone.
'have to send a messenger', Kanga!
Sounds like you're sending an angel down to deliver messages from on high!!
