Hi NFS ! Congratulations on your VLM place! I have not been so lucky and didnt get a place in the main ballot or the club draw!
I am doing two other spring road marathons instead. Got Brighton Marathon on 12th April so will start training properly after Christmas. Carrying a bit of achilles tendinitis at the moment so resting it for about 6 weeks and hope it clears off!
Daz, Shimmy, Mr P, Tiger Lilly and a few others post on FB where a 3 45ers group has been set up ...join the group
Omahd ! ) Wishing you the very best with the op....., great to hear from you and hope we will all be back in 2015
How did it go for everyone?
I loved every minute the crowd, the weather, the whole event was more than special. Just incredible.
My running wasn't great but I got around in 4:31 , not up to a true 3:45er of old but pleased to be back running and aim get better with pace for 2015 . Jez welcome ....I was way to slow to catch a view of Mo!
Hi NFS - similar to me! You were always one of the quckest on here! Sounds like you're doing well coming back and thats a pretty decent pace for 9 miles! Well done for come back! If you spot me Ill be wearing an Orpington Roadrunner bright yellow top and staggering around at about 10 minute miling...and then dragging myself around canary wharf probably as always hated that section!
Well all....*blows away the cob webs* just checking in before Sunday! Who else is in this year?
After over 2 years of illness and then several false starts and injuries I have returned since Boxing Day!
I have managed to slowly rebuild to a point where this marathon is doable albeit nothing like my previous four London's in 07, 08, 10 and 11 all of which I finished in the magical sub 4.
This time it will be survival but I will get around...nearer to 5 hours than 4 I suspect, but I shall smile through any discomfort and think of how lucky I am to be running again. I shall be running for Alzheimer's Society. Like OG said get over to Facebook those of you who remember me!
OG you are a legend! Back to back sub 4's --- quality chi !
How about Mr Puffy?
OMAHD and QQ it would be great if we could all get in for next year..I am defo going to apply as always - lets do it? I think I have a place anyway more than likely as Mrs Benyo deferred 2013 so we could dress as a girl for 2014
