Gordon didn't look vry happy at the end. there was someone next to him who was showboating and I think Gordon was a tad bemused...
it was great to meet a few new pirates today and catch up with some shipmates from previous campaigns...
4:11 for me... not the target I was going for, it all went a bit wrong somewhere after the 7 mile pee break! Ho hum! London DONE! Never again, it's just not for me... too many flipping people getting in the way. Being tripped up twice didn't endorse the mass marathon concept to me either.
Congrats to all who ran. I hope you were closer to your targets than me...
Fab support from around the course - although in truth I found it hard to spot people in the crowds. I think I spotted DTB, and a few others.

A fantastic run CD. I looked out for pirates on't telly and spotted one wearing a red visor hat.

VT'd - that would have been Hairier Half I think....
Wow CD that's an amazing time!
I did 4.22 which I'm very happy with. All went well and paced it really well until mile 25 when I blew up. Gutted I didn't go for a drink with PSC, FF and HH at the end but got totally overwhelmed with the all the crowds and had to runaway
Lovely to see everyone - old and new (as it were) today.
I offered Gordon a beer before I realised who it was...he was very lovely...
It was me in the red visor - going for the proper tri ponce look
Great pirate support as usual - at Mudchute and other places - thank you, it helps
Finished in 3.39, which I'm pleased with as it's been a busy 3 weeks - I'm just disappointed that it took me 17 miles to drop Jaffa
Great to meet pirates I haven't met before IP - how long did you hide in the toilet for?
Tall blonde pirate might have been Gyraffe.
Thanks for the soaking, hairy. I only got the tail end of it, but that was bad enough! I hope you received adequate payback from your lovely lady.

cracking effort all!
great inspiration for next week!
Well done all .. seeing you all yesterday has given me the kick up the arse i needed to get training properly again.
Sorry to bring the tone down .. But for anyone that didnt already sponsor someone .. and that enjoyed watching the marathon then you might want to throw a few quid at the just giving page of Claire Squires , the young lady that tragically died on the final part of the course . https://www.justgiving.com/Claire-Squires2 she was running to raise money for the samaritans.
