Morning isn't really practical Cake as I'm coming from Norfolk and I didn't want to then be stuck in London all day with nothing to do! From what I can gather this year a lot of the freebies seem to be gels and stuff, which I don't use anyway
Forgot I need to post a picture, although my running vest also has my name on it now in sparkly white letters!
When we went last year on the Saturday afternoon there weren't any freebies and most of the stalls seemed to be either the gold bond place ones or ones that wanted you to buy something, so I didn't really see the point in bothering again this year! Want to get a Bondi headband from the DMP stall, but that's it really
Not really sure yet, sorting out train times with my friend who's coming with me tomorrow; she's been on holiday in Japan so bit last minute with some stuff!! Probably not until mid afternoon though as we don't really want to just be hanging around in the hotel room stressing!
Hello! It stopped sending me notifications that people had posted and I've been too busy at work to drop on
I've now got my vest and my sparkly name letters came today so will post a picture of me in my kit tonight or tomorrow
I'm coming up on the Saturday so will be at the expo in the afternoon and then straight off to the hotel. To be honest I probably won't stay there long as I don't want to spend ages on my feet on Saturday, need to save them for Sunday!!
Estimated arrival time at Mudchute: around 2:15 (assuming it takes me about 15 minutes to get across the start) I know that's late so if it's going to be an issue please say, I don't want you hanging around for hours after everyone else just for me. I'm walk/running (injuries, again) and I've been averaging around 15 minute miles in training so I'm hoping that will work out the same on the day.
Description of race gear: I'm running for Mind, but I'm still waiting on my vest. Will stick up a picture when I get it
Special needs: just big hugs and encouragement!! We won't be getting to the expo until fairly late on the Saturday so not sure if anyone will be around to leave bits with, but if there isn't it doesn't matter as I have someone who can do that a bit further along the course
