VLM was great - a bit of a slow run with the chip time at 5:55 but I had a fab day and enjoyed myself. I kept getting the cramp pains in my right foot that I've had for about a month now since the Hastings 1/2m so had to keep stopping and taking my shoe off. I was on course for a sub 5 for the first 10 miles but once once I knew I'd have to keep stopping I decided just to take it easy and enjoy the crowds. It was really hot too but for some reason it didn't bother me as much as some people.
Thankfully I managed to beat the rhinos, big bird, sonic the hedgehog and Ironman but I was really happy not to be beaten by the man with the fridge on his back!
Evening all - getting a bit worried now. I felt good yesterday but have have a bad migraine type headache all day today and my neck glands are swollen again. Hoping it's all gone by 7am tomorrow when I have to catch the train.
I got the top done in Snappy Snaps in T.Wells Cinders.
I only spent £20 in the expo - I wanted some Hoka shoes for the ultras but the didn't feel right. I had kc with me and couldn't concentrate so gave up and made a swift exit. I have to say that whoever thought this years 'goodie' bags were good or goodie should be shot - one nutrigrain biscuit with the consitency of chipboard and one fish oil capsule plus the leaflets - pretty bad offerings..........
I dropped a box there yesterday with some food in it for me ST. You obviously weren't there and the girls on the RW stand didn't really know what was going on. Maddie/SuperCaz/Foxy Lady et al. I have crohns disease and can't eat the normal sort of food/gels/drinks. There should be a Carte D'or ie cream tub with a couple of bananas, some medijool dates and some salted peanuts in it. If for any reason they're not there could you possibly get some for me. I can only eat spotty bananas so don't worry if you can't find them but some dates (medijool if poss) and a small bag of salted peanuts should see me through the last few miles. I'll take a few quid with me to pay you for it. Thanks.
Slightly panicking because the first girl I spoke to on the RW stand didn't know anything about the supporters group so I looked around to see if you were somewhere else. I couldn't find you so went back to RW and the next girl said the place to leave stuff was with them
