Ant - nice piccies. Am already looking forward to next year!!
Spent 2.5 hours in the car driving back from Northampton this afternoon. Not a great decision given the anticipated holiday traffic but at least it gave me time to get up to date with Marathon Talk podcasts.
Suffice to say there's a member of this thread who either hasn't listened to it yet or is being rather modest about her position on this week's podium!!!

Marrows - did I see from your Power of 10 that you did the Self-Transcendence 10K after VLM last year? I'm very tempted to have a crack at it this year. What was the race like?
Ant - glad you're feeling so positive. Is the reference to "What a day. See you next year" directed at us forumites or the Spanish lass you bumped into? Brave decision to take her back on the train to your mum's for a quick dinner!!
Yhsif - custard rather than cream. A very yummy apple pie to follow the lamb shanks and chorizo. Sounds like a beautiful run yesterday.
More impressive progression from Gul. Any more tune up races between now and marathon day? I can't remember what the list said.
MsE - have you settled in to your new place yet?
My legs aren't quite so achey this morning so made it out for a gentle 3 miler.
