Oh come on, I can't be the only one with the mind of a 12 year old boy on the thread!
Nope, I'm one of those too, Mad, just haven't had time to post!
Tom, I had a similar groin issue a coulple of years ago - it radiated from the edge of my fluffy bits, down my inside leg. Kept me out of action for about 3 months and then I got fed up of waiting, so ignored it. It just disappeared. Bit weird really, because months of rest/taking it easy didn't help. Hope yours is not so troublesome.
McFlooze - I wondered why people were commenting but I couldn't see anything. I had you on 'ignore'...not idea how that happened! Sorry you suffered, but a PB can't be sniffed at.
I saw the same guy as you on the right, in a tunnel/underpass. They were working away on him, so that must have been a good while later. Not sure why he'd not gone in an ambulance. But then, it was probably mayhem trying to get through traffic. As you said, it puts all our running woes into perspective.
Sorry to hear about the stress fracture, Chick. My friend had one, recovered and went on to PB. Hope for you yet.
Good health to you SGB, hope you can keep running.
I might be the slow girl of the thread, but I overtook 925 runners, nine hundred and twenty five, I tell thee! I'm pretty blummin chuffed with that. Unless I started with the 5 hour runners by accident
Re the congestion we all seemed to experience - I wonder how feasible it is and what difference it would make to introduce wave starts a la some other marathons?
