Selbs - it was more aimed at people having had a good build up and knowing where they are really but putting the A target there and then chasing it. I wouldn't put you in that category but then given what I've posted (which as far as I can recall wasn't anything to do with pacing) then I'd pretty much disregard my advice on pacing...apparently ;o)
Paula? Still working with Muller Wolfhart (of Bayern fame) and refusing to say if her name was on the IAAF suspicious red list due to having highly irregular passport values. Never tested positive. Nothing to see here.

I'd imagine PP would sadly prefer B or C.
BTW IM(not so)HO anyone who has a spread of much more than 5minutes is on the balance of probability in for a pretty bad day if they shoot for A.
marders - it's in the wash with the one that says 'Sole survivor from the marders Express' and several carloads of fun it was to boot. I get the impression PP won't be so liberal with his flag sharing given the contraption it's attached to. What happened to old skool?
Pay money to Guinness so marders can run the marathon a bit differently to the rest of us? That's not super or heroic in my book. FFS I'm shelling out a few quid bringing the binlids up and the like. Anyone wanna make a cheque out to Hilton Hotels or South West Trains for me? I'll accept cash or cheque at the Red Lion.
Jees puts me in mind of some twunt of a medical student who wanted to do an IM and started a crowd funding thing for a few grand to help him do it - bike, entry fee, flights, hotel etc. I think if you pledged enough he gave you a shout out on Twitter...probably to his 4 followers.
To break a world record, she will be taking part in the iconic 26.2mile race dressed as a playing card.
She said: “I need to finish in under 4h 23m 27seconds. I know this is achievable but an unknown factor is whether or not there is another playing card running the marathon. On the bright side at least I'm not running in high heels or carrying an 80lb pack - those record breakers are truly incredible!”
Dan - maybe a quick costume change before Sunday and you could be a real hero...and stop for a slap up feed somewhere. I mean WT-actual-F? The McWhirter boys would be turning in their graves! To think the Waiter from the 80s used to do it well under 3hours. It's a great time to be alive as natural selection takes us ever higher.
