Cheers Plodder! I waited......and waited but got nowhere! I finally manged to get in by switching the view to mobile view (on my desktop!) and got in straight away! Now just a case of waiting again to find out if I'm in! Good luck everyone!
I know what you mean Barca, but as I was helping someone else get round their first half it was just as satisfying seeing them finish. It was interesting being back there though, speaking to a lot of the people they had literally done no training, and was a completely different mindset to the usual folks I'm in amongst. To be fair though, the majority were all focused on the Charity aspect rather than the running so fair play to them!
I did laugh when it was pointed out to me that the further back you went, the larger the people became - it was so true! No nice wee bums to follow back there!
Wow, what a day! Glad (almost) everyone had a great time and well done Ali!!
Got to say I couldn't fault the organisation form start to finish, especially for a race of that size, it went like absolute clockwork so big well done for that! I had a great time, just enjoyed the whole experience, met some great people, missed a PB by 37 minutes but was really good to be able to jog round with no pressure of a time, helping and encouraging others, high fiving everyone, cheering the bands etc, which I never normally do!
I also had to haul a woman out of the road otherwise she was going in the ambulance too, can;t believe how many people were wearing headphones on a race like that with an atmosphere like that!
I also wont do it again, now that I've experienced it, I started in the very last pen - took me 45 minutes to cross the start line and must have overtaken around 15000 folk, which I probably wont ever do again either!
Got Glasgow half in October, then a holiday, hopefully get in to London and can start the serious training again! Good luck for LN Ali, I'm sure you'll do great!
