Morning all-two days to go. Chick arrived last night knackered. Hoping to meet at the expo but not certain. I want to get it done.Monday still seems a long way off. Miss2O arrives today .
Red- nasty op there. Don't forget to work on the upper body during your rehab .. You'll soon be back.
Pink- some quality training going on by you. Did Barry video the TM disaster?

Boston update -Back from a 6+ miler .. Back seems ok ...Achilles and knees a bit tender due to lack of impact over the last week but otherwise ok, felt as though I am carrying a few extra pounds, bit tough coping with the pace but not too bad (ranged 7.30-6.48)overall. 7.30mm average with first and last miles easy. Think that means Monday won't be a fun run unless the wheels fall off which might very well be the case
I see it was a bike day in the UK today for TM. Just shows what can happen when I leave the country

DD- perfect conditions here - cold but not too cold , bit of a breeze but not too strong
Amazing atmosphere here. City overtaken by marathon excitement mixed with emotion and sadness from last year. Just seen a very poignant exhibition of artwork commemorating last year and been given a handmade scarf in the marathon colours for runners only. Going for a test run now though it's obvious my back isn't right .Fingers crossed. Expo tomorrow ..maybe see Chick there ?

Ta for the good wishes guys. Enjoying a glass before boarding. My last until Monday
Chick- good to see you keeping up the traditional taper - see you in the US of A
Barry- I remember running 10miles near that pace when I used to run
Oomp- no wonder you were wrecked after a marathon : you lined to run them injured
Bro- I feel happy getting on the plane now
O4S- that's gross. Taking your advice to have fun
Minni- time for a proper rest and recovery ? Congrats on GNR
Jack- not good about the calf. Don't make it worse
Nell-hang on in there you'll soon be tapering
Back still troubling me. Will run a trendy one tomorrow or Saturday to help me decide what to do on Monday - fun run or give it a go ???

Chick- I've got lots of old stuff but like to use a bag up to the start - I will adapt.
Going to pm you. I'm on watsap but not sure about wifi there

Minni- I'm wave 1 corral 8 . Start 10am but by wave 8 it will be nearer 10.15. I think there's an AT&T tracker which is probably not as good as the one for London
I'm excited now. It's been tough resisting trying a run this week but will give one a go on Saturday after recovering from my flight

Nell- south side? Is that like Dublin with its rivalry between the south side and north side?

Col-good advice there thanks

Chick- I was planning to take a big bin liner to the start area to keep warm in until the race starts but am not sure if the rules allow this. What of you think.?

Ant-sounds good.I was planning to do an Olympic distance one this year but not having cycled or swam since November I think it may be a challenge

Nell-beautiful countryside -almost as good as our part of the worldThat was a fast 7
