So nearly wasn't the case DF came very close to dropping.

I too found myself admiring Brunels bridge LM untill you come from the other direction to see someone as sprayed the words Big Balls on it. Has no one any respect.

Very well done everyone who started on Saturday from me too. 

Great team of marshals; solid, smiling, understanding, always willing to help and always offering whatever I needed as if by telepathy. Their help and the hot tea were definitely major factors in my finishing my first ever 100.

I'm new to all this, do all 100s end in a huge puddle under a railway arch?

Well done to everyone, amazing going given the weather, hope your all recovering nicely!

There will be a TV appeal for you soon DF3...

Standing room only on my SE train to work this morning but after chatting to the blind chap standing next to me, hopefully he will to go back to guided running, I felt surpringly chipper getting off at the other end.

I am not sure what is the bigger waste of time or more pointless. Us running 105 miles in the freezing cold or coming onto an ultra forum to heckle ultra runners.

That's a joke btw DF but there is an essence of truth in there somewhere.

I forgot to say earlier a big thankyou to all the volunteers and I think lirish needs an especially big thankyou. He was helping me on here before I even got to the start line.

P.s what's everyone doing next? I have the Fellsman in April. Anyone else here doing that one?

The cardiff ultra for me in may

Might see u in Cardiff, Louismaxy... Still haven't decided yet. There'll be a few of my club doing it though.

Next for me it's the thunder run in July... Gonna try n podium in that one!!
Good luck at the Fellsman Gav, heard good things about that one. April is too soon for me hehe.

Pony express in may, still looking for something else. Anyone tried the Enduro24 hr - think its a 5 mile loop. Not keen on loops but I guess the plus side is you don't have to carry much ( and I'd hope even I couldn't get lost!)

GUCR for me. If i can sort my feet out that is.

Erm, the race t-shirts appear to say London to Oxford on the back? Great effort by Centurion and all of the volunteers for putting the race on- THANKS!

That was totally exhausting- took me 9 hours to cover the last 20 miles; is that a record for slowness!?

25/03/2013 at 19:52
Probably didn't have time to reprint the t shirts after the course change on Thursday

Get ya marker pen out!

Now my loss is starting to sink in.  

olly-  you stuck with it and should be really proud of yourself

25/03/2013 at 20:20
David you haven't earned the right yet. Run or plan to run an ultra then come back and take the piss
25/03/2013 at 20:52
That was one hard run. I thought that the Thames path 100 was meant to be relatively straight forward. Those bloody long muddy sections were hellish. I was out there for nearly 29 hours and was just starting to feel the cold. All that said, it was still bloody good fun.

The TP100 has taken place twice now, and both times the conditions have been challenging. 

Many people assume that it is the easiest of the Centurion races, but I don't think this is necessarily the case.
