Will be spending Sunday morning watching the Marathon on TV as home alone as fiancee is away for the weekend on hen do ahead of Wedding on 17th May (5 weeks' tomorrow - eek!).
Good luck to those running - Ikle, Wendy? Anyone else? Will be with you all in spirit. Had a coaching session at work today and talked a lot about managing the inner gremlin and need for affirmation so repeat after me - "I am a marathoner, I am a marathoner". Good luck!
Amazing marathon performances all round! Total admiration, and total determination never to run another one myself! It is a bloomin' long way and the training takes it's toll, so very happy to have done 8 and sticking with that
A quick post from me to say GOOD LUCK to all those Marathoning this weekend. Just remember all the training you have done, the Marathons you have conquered before, and most of all try to enjoy the experience!
Did a mere 10K local race last weekend and finished 36th (although total finishers were only 133 ).
Birthday boy tomorrow although having to work, but going to see The Commitments stage show in West End in the evening.
Well done ACoops on your new PB. You must have been right next to me at the start as I was running just behind the 1:50 pacer up until Reading Uni campus, then it got too crowded around her and i thought her pace was dropping slightly behind 1:50 pace so I went ahead to get clear and just picked up the speed from there.
