Met Angela at Lewisham but took longer than expected to get to the bench. Thankfully the Puffsta and Sean were still there (great to finally meet you Sean - relieved to see the mankini stayed at home). Also saw Angela's mentee Hellsbells as well as Reg who was in the voting the year before last with myself and Shady Ady.
Sorry we missed the rest of you
I then made my way to mile 10 and on arrival had the pleasure of running into sense who was brilliant company and stayed for the duration.
Didn't manage to see everyone but I think our hit rate was pretty decent. Bagged the crucial one, Superman Tim Jones who was looking ridiculously speedy! Thanks everyone for seeking out the Swiss flag, it was almost impossible to spot you all so we needed you to help us out, much appreciated!
Myself and sense are also now adopted Swiss citizens after attracting the attention of a raft of la Suisse runners
By the time most of you had gone through it didn't leave much time to get to mile 15 so I parted company with sense and headed for the finish.
I waited for quite a while but didn't see anyone. Just as Inwas about to give up I spotted BRB and got to congratulate her on her immense achievement.
Next stop was the pub where I met up with Angela, Sarah A, Shady Ady, Minni, Brolish and several others. The odd shandy or two rounded off a great day nicely.
Well done everyone who ran today. Some immense performances. Anyone who runs and completes a marathon is a superstar!
