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....

just listened to the interview - cool!

so who is Tom, and who was the other one who spoke - was that Jaffa? I didn't hear HH's dulcet tones though

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'.

Seren... seeing you reach for a second can of Beer was one of the highlights of my day and reminded me to not take this kind of thing too seriously and have fun and smile

agree with GB ... the enduring image of this years VLM will be that of Seren at Mudshute on her second Stella ... made all the better by her  deciding that being stationary for so long perhaps might look right and that  she should pretend she is stretching out .. Leg in the air, bottle of Stella in one hand,  sausage roll in the other  .... Seren you are a legend

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...

highlight running along quietly and a strange man suddenly comes up and asks if i am in a triathlon club....i say yes and then he tells me that Kanga said to say hello.........it made my day that a tall australian came and gave me that message......

Ha, you're the mysterious Sarah that Pete said helllo to ! Yes, small world example #521. Meet random friend of a friend doing an MTB race in Canberra a few weeks ago who's next gig is London mara. I say I know a few peeps doing that, very hard to miss the kit and the capers, Mile 17 beer stand etc, and send him on his way. Would have much rather been there to say hi and get a few pints down in person, but sometimes you have to send a messenger

Sounds like another great day out though

HH - apologies for missing your deep manly voice on the interview

Kanga - so we still can't rid of you, even by sending you to the colonies

Oh wow you found the interview. Fame and fortune may follow.

Loved meeting up with the gang above for some good pre and post race banter.

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!!

Oh god yes Holly, from my exalted position as a failed wannabe tri deity

Cracking autumnal day outside today, clear, cold, blue skies, and about to run to work. Loved those sort of days back 'home'
