2old - I'm in pen 2 as well. On green pens 1 and 2 are joined - a couple of years ago Minni, AA and I got in there first and were right up against the rope looking straight at the start line. Trouble is they bring the celebs out in front so you can't get right to the front but it won't be more than 10-20 seconds to cross the line.
I've not done the journey from CharingCross. Probably means going to Blackheath? Maybe 15 minute walk from there.
I'm at Waterloo on my way to my brothers. Feeling nervous but confident at the same time!
See some of you tomorrow at the start and good luck to everyone
Minni - when do you think you'll get to Chandos? I'm not sure yet if I'll go there, depends on timings - OH and I have been asked to an event at our local pub which I want to go to (even though I may end up going straight when I get back looking like a complete mess!).
Anyway will look out for you at 13/22. Presume you are on the 22 side of the road? Hopefully I'll make it that far this year
Sean - bit of a faff yes, but pretty simple in the end and does save you trying to find your way on foot. At custom house you don't even need to get to street level - just follow the Virgin Money banners! Plus if you start from Waterloo it's only one change at Canning Town. Yesterday I did Liverpool Street - Stratford - Canning Town - Custom House in about 25 minutes.
