Oh yes! The soaking! [levels a Very Flat Stare Indeed at HH]

Direct hit. Still, it refreshed my curl cream so I used it as an impromptu hair-fluffing session.

Fantastic support yesterday,  thanks to all who were out there & lovely to meet more pirates both on the course and in the pub afterwards (am looking forward to Post Outlaw party already)

Delighted to be dropped by HH at mile 17......... as it was seriously damaging my street cred to be seen with someone wearing the tri-ponce visor & calf guards   
Much more in keeping was Seren's comment to BBC radio London that the skull & crossbones was about people who "sort of do triathlon"

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).....

Nice linky, you must be famous innit!

It's the linky to the 8 o clock marathon show, not the 10 o clock. If anyone wants to hear the posse...

morning all
i am in a good mood so will not go on the link to hear my usual drivel...

so great to meet so many pirate asgain .before during and after......

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......

Jaffa..i wasn't thinking straight at that interview as i had just seen you mincing your way across the field seconds before........

great work at mudchute again...........especially to Mr Z who has amazing hugs.......and I got 2 of my 3 requests.........no bacon butty but the sausage rolls, smoked cheese and chocolate made up for no bacon

I apologise to amyone in the pub I upset as I get even louder and less tactful when i drink and a few pints without food isn't good for this old girl.....

so thank you all for helping to make a great day despite my PW time...50 mins slower than my first ever marathon.....finishing time 5:25

Sausage rolls.  Food of champions.

Holly - PSC was on there as well - midlife crisis man
Tom's done a few - very fast swimmer and runner, but cyclist he ain't! He's a busy man so doesn't normally get much time to play on forums, but will see what I can do - he likes beer though

And I am very nice I'll have you know - if you're around tomorrow morning I'll even buy you a coffee to prove it

Thank you lovely Pirates for your support on Sunday, from both Funkin and myself. He was awesome and finally got his GFA, hurrah!

I was chuckling to myself as Seren was running along with me with her diet coke before I sent her on her way! I didn't realise she'd had sausage rolls too, didn't tell me that!

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....

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.

ah, the other one who spoke was PSC - thanks HH

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...

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
