Gregry Collins - how easy do you think it will be for a marshall to 'tap on the shoulder' a person running past them wearing earphones in amongst a couple of hundred (or more) other runners? Not really practical or safe is it??
Sideburn - I will try and convince the OH to do the marathon - then we can incorporate it into a summer holiday with our boards and wetsuits - the clincher might be along the lines of 'but being in the sea will help your post marathon recovery.....'
I haven't for the past couple of years as I've been struggling with a joint issue, but this year, I may venture out with the pooch (on a lead, of course) to do a little jog/walk. I find that it makes me feel better about eating Christmas dinner later on and sort of sets me up for the day. Anyone else.....or is it just me and the OH??
Also, what do you do for Chrimbly dinner? Turkey or an alternative meat? My mum always makes mushy peas (from the dried ones you have to soak), so it's tradition now that we always have it - I can't remember a Christmas dinner when they weren't served up. Does anyone else have any foody traditions that others may brand 'weird'??
