Apart from being totally broke I can't think of any reason i'd sell mine. And I'd hope that in my old age i'd get more satisfaction from it than a few quid in my bank account. And when I'm gone my kids and grandkids would have it.
Zero miles this week and plenty of the black stuff this afternoon
Skinny, bored of the speculation I have called them myself. The official line which will be announced soon is that two minutes will be added to everyone's time. So if you need 3.15 and you have 3.12 you are good to go..
That's the good news
I reckon the bad news will be that GFA times will come down by 10 mins for ages 18-39 and 40-44, with the rest ( up to age 60 ) coming down by 5 mins. For boys and girls. That assumes that this year's increase in the number of people running GFA times at London compared to 2014 is reflective of the overall improvement across all qualifying marathons.
Lit - personal choice i'd say. I can see why people would put them on ebay but it's not something i'd do, my preference is to get mine engraved with my name and time.
McF - i'm done in after reading that I've suffered cramps previous 2 maras but didn't get any this time. If anything i'd have expected it more this year but nope ! There appears to be no rhyme or reason .... great time though, well done
NP - yep, great to meet again mate and i'm well pleased you got what your training deserves. I don't post much on the Mara thread now but i try to look in when i get chance and there's a few (including you) on there i like to watch out for. Keep flying that V50 flag, i'll be there soon
My legs aren't too bad, both calves a bit sore and quads have seen happier days but i can walk relatively normally down a flight of stairs. I have no desire to run whatsoever though and i think this time i will actually take the minimum 1 week break i promise every year.
NP - great to see you at the start again mate and well ran. I said at the start i expected you'd hit 2:55 comfortably and that sounds like it was the case. I followed the red 3hr pacer until about 20 miles when i started to find it difficult to keep up. I realised at around 21-22 that i wouldn't make it and nursed myself home in 3:03:12. 11 minutes slower than last year but considering where i was at XMAS i'm happy with that.
