the bottle of beer pulled out at mile 17. There were some great costumes out there. Bananaman/ironman/zippy/bungle etc. It must have been a fiery furnace of hell in those types of costumes.
Best bit of the day for me was the reaction to some runners who were in Bee costumes. We cheered them all on through mile 7, making buzzing noises and chanting "bee, bee, bee, bee!!" like football hooligans. We saw them again at mile 17 and did they same. They loved it and lapped up the extra attention. With the exception of the last bee who looked at us and said "We're wasps actually."
The support was brilliant and I'm sure I saw Tiny Runner jumping up and down like a mad thing in a group at one point. About mile 6 or 7 I think.
Yep, that was me! Brought about 10 of my friends and family and had flags and bells. Went absolutely mental all day! Was at the 7 mile point and 17 too. You were all amazing! Had such fun shouting everyone's names, having a bit of banter with the runners, high fiving, singing football chants etc. You had a brilliant run!
Also saw HeOw, who was looking incredibly strong at the 17 mile point (despite what she said to me!).
Seriously, you were all fantastic. I was so, so desperate to be running but I'm pretty sure I expended just as much energy . Well done, all of you.
