My number is 4278. I'm going from Blue start, pen 4. Any idea how easy that will be to get going in terms of getting into my pace/crowdedness etc?
I've clearly pissed the marathon gods off this year as, in addition to falling over yesterday, I now have a sore throat. I'm aiming for hourly salt water gargles and honey slurps in between batches of Soreen. Mind you, my clubmate who just won Premier vet in the Marathon des Sables reckons she fell over in the first mile and was told by an elderly Frenchmen that it was a good omen and she'd probably win it now. So there is that. She's doing London from the Champs start, Lit, so you might see her. There are two lady Striders going from Champs.
In fact our plan is to have a club blue start meet just outside the champs start entrance so if you feel like popping out and saying Hi pre-race then do. Or not, I won't be offended. My shoes are teal with a pink rim and I will most likely be sporting blue kinesio tape on one leg and have a scabby knee on the other. Club vests are green with red stripe.
260g carbs so far today. Easy! I seem to have a carb hangover though.
