Susan, that's terrible news, really sorry to hear about your friend. Puts all into perspective. (See below).
Howard, already posted congrats but very solid, especially with a fall. More to come too?
Ntfs, excellent time. pretty much bang on guesstimates , similar to your club mate week before?
Fido, oh no. That doesn't sound good, Physio, massage will get you there. You've done it before and got there - and finished. Inspired me to have a go too. You'll make it.
Good but not great run for me, 3:2x (if Ted Rogers and Dusty bin did marathons), but fade started at 18 miles by 7-8 minutes probably unwise to chase PB whilst training for Comrades. 3 marathons, ultra & team trail event in last 8 weeks training going to sneak up at some point.
I enjoyed London a lot more this time though, crowds were great. Atmosphere really did push you. Lots of high fives, and getting crowd to cheer. And lovely first class train back, shower at station, very relaxed for an extra ??5.
Finished though, waiting for train and wife found out her Aunt is critical in hospital after cancer related op last week. Family called in to see her so didn't post result till late, really wiped us out. She has rallied now, but long way to go. Daily.
Howard looking good in the yellow kit. I hadn't even thought about the expo yet, any good bits?. The web tracker worked well the last few years even on your phone. Just a few days now, getting exciting to see you do sub 4.
NFS also looking good. Maybe run the same time as your club mate.
Conditions look great to me, cool with a little rain. Perfect to run well in. Blue start for me also. Red Wallasey vest Martin on front. Little leg stretcher tonight is last run for me.
