Geez. Now that's a birthday party I'd travel to attend - who get's to be Anna?
Greetings from Edinburgh. It's going to be a busy 3 days of conferencing for me. At least it gives me something to do while TD weaves his magic in Qatar.
I was quite pleased to find 2 of said teacakes on arrival in my hotel room - a nice touch I though. It hasn't quite hit the spot though, so a baked potato is on its way via the helpful services of justeat.com...
Yes, yes, I know. I shouldn't be eating carbs so late. But I'm FAMISHED!
My favourite sign was: "I'm so very proud of you random stranger."
But the quote of the weekend for me also goes to Ms Brown: "The world is a safer place with women wearing big pants." accompanied by dubious disdain. I was admiring some utterly flippant lacy turquoise number in a shop window at the time...
The things we think about during marathons, hey? Stuchbury - your story made me laugh!
Yes Tim, I wondered about that oddity, but I'm not sure whether there's been a chip failure.
I was one of the last people who got over the official timing mats at the end. My official time is 6:27:28. My official placing is 40,008th. The inimitable Ms Brown (sorry Natty - slight correction needed to your utterly fabulous tribute to us all) was 40,007th. I think they said there were 40,167 official finishers?
Betzza came in not that long after Audrey and me, and somebody mentioned that the timing mats had already been pulled up when she went through. Now I check, no results show on her number.
