The ballot closed around 10am, which is earlier than other years. Was it the Mo Farrah hype this year and the lovely weather on the day? From the ballot thread, there were a lot of problems with the website at peak times due to the high numbers trying to enter. Glad you got it sorted in time, Littlest Hobo. Now the long wait.
Nice one, Nattybow! We've all been there with the trots and can feel your relief sprinting out of the portaloo showing (I hope) a 'clean pair of heels'. Well done for completing the race; you were just right to go ahead. I'm definitely in for London next year too even if I have to drag my broken old body round to the finish.
Leave your gels at home, Martin. Just bring with you a bit of what you fancy The best things are cakes, bananas, oranges, nuts & raisins etc. But they supply most of that anyway at their food stations. Their boiled cake is delicious!
There is no need to panic at all. Just take it easy and enjoy the day.
