Just wanted to pop in again and wish good luck to one and all. I am really looking forward to meeting many of you at the Arc for the photo shoot! I won't know any of you by face so if see an old git with grey hair looking lost give me a shout! And then hopefully I can keep pace with some of you purple penners for the first couple of miles. But whatever I will be in Corcorans for a few bevvies and then a few more.
My Flybe flight (hopefully) gets into Paris first thing Saturday morning. Can anyone tell me the best travel option. Is it favourable to purchase a book of tickets which will get me round the city on all modes of transport until I leave on Monday and will that cover the train from the airport. Sorry if this topic has already been covered.
Having just recovered from a nasty bout of man-flu (women are so lucky they don't get afflicted by it!) ran 22 miles yesterday. I needed another long one despite the proximity to Paris date. I was about 15-20 mins behind what I would normally expect but I'll put that down to my condition. It was bloody hard graft the last couple and not pretty.
Still haven't got my doc's certificate yet ... got an appointment next week, hope he doesn't charge too much.
Looking forward to Arc picture pre-race, Corcorans and maybe running with a few of you.
Sorry its taken me over a week to respond Stuchbury but I was away at the Cheltenham horse racing Festival last week drinking, eating and gambling far too much for my own good. Put a few pound on (waistline) and lost a few (pocket)
You and Heroine passed me in your Foch T-shirts within the first mile I believe before disappearing into the MK horizon. I will try and keep up a bit longer in Paris.
Couldn't squeeze in a LSR at the weekend because of family commitments etc but finally got round to running 21 this morning. Did I enjoy it? Did I hell.
The prospect of 22 next weekend fills me with utter glee!!
I better get off to the docs for the certificate judging by how many of you have already got yours.
Hope the old geezer doesn't want too much for his precious signature.
