Struggling a bit tonight TRex, legs have gone a bit wobbly, early night and fingers crossed for quick recovery over next 2 days.

Kit for me-shorts, shirt, arm warmers, trainers, gel belt with Montane coat tied around it, Welsh Dragon headscarf, several layers of pairs of cheap gloves to be discarded in bins on the way and a massive cheap second hand shop coat to wear before be discarded at the last minute. I'm a Hobbit, I need maximum warmth at the start but need to be able to off-load the gear, as and when I need to. AND, hopefully a big smile for the TV cameras, you are all being filmed for S4C coverage!!!

Yeh, tick tock Cold still hanging on in there, am rattling with all the tablets being taken! Never mind, nothing can be done about it now. Will rock n roll around that mountain in whatever state I'm in !! Chimney, we'll get around somehow matey.  Rendezvous time sounds good to me. Will register first then amble around to Y Pantri.        BTW, I've just looked at latest is positively picnic and flask weather

SS, just a very strong coffee for me please

Sorry to hear you had a bad one FR, but it was just a dress rehearsal! However, as I seem to be developing full blown lurgy, I may join you on the revised time zone.

So, Mr Rex-how did you do?

Were you running Mc Hilly. If so, did you have a good one?

TRex, not at Abo or any other marathon this weekend as funds have run out. So did 24 miles on my onesome! Bit late but good luck for tomorrow. Look out for Jason, he seems to have vaporised! Hope he is ok.

Stu, I plod around in Asics GT 1000. I've run a marathon with a pair straight out of the box. They are for slightly over-pronators, don't know if that helps!

Jervoise, my choice for trail marathon/ultras are Salomon Speedcross 3. Awesome grip but great support unlike the innov8 ones I've got.

Cheers Chris and Leigh for supportive messages.

Beer time now

Oh, I've just realised that all being well...I'll be in my caravan in Waunfawr this time next week..enjoying a beer pre the best marathon in the World (in my humble opinion!). Managaed to avoid a last minute entry into any marathon this weekend so it will be a gentle 20 mile lsr tomorrow and 10 on Sunday.

Dare I mention I've just looked at BBC long range forecast for next Saturday? I hope it is correct but know better than to rely on it!

Ivan, you do about the same road times as me. My problem with Snod is the final descent into is brutal. But if you aint bothered about breaking a leg at that point, go for it! I walk it and so lose a lot of time. I did 3hrs 51 last year BUT conditions were very good. Hope that helps

Fenners, will be my 82nd marathon. We are chasing that shirt boy!!

Chrissi, if you do come to support I will be wearing a Buff headscarf-with Welsh dragons on it

Hello Team Snodders, just returned from a blistering 17 miler in wind and rain...yeh, nice to acclamatise to forthcoming weather at Eryri. Yes Chimney, I believe I was first at York marathon, that is, first to nearly collapse of hypothermia at the beginning . I'm in the Yorkshire Post photos and a ravishing dude I look too

Great news, gaffer has agreed to let me have Friday afternoon off so will be meandering my way over to digs at a sensible time. Get sorted, registered then into Y Pantri for some fantastic coffee. Are we having a meeting time?

Great to see some familiar names here again, please come and join us at Y Pantri if you are in Llanberis on Friday, early evening.

Liking your carb loading strategy Lemmy

Oh my word, the boyz are having a food fest party at the secret pad. Food arrangements sound lush, make room in a bed for me, I'm only little, I can perch on the edge of a double aside 2 blokes. However, people may talk so I'd best go back to my caravan idea

Great to see you today Chimney, I was having a bit of a crap time tbh as I think the exhaustion of actually getting to the start had done me in .

Having to find dog sitter, finding digs that weren't a rip off, the stress of the fog on the drive there from digs (I was nr Doncaster and I couldn't even see the fog lights of cars in front of me on the motorway at one point) and then the utter chaos in my head of sorting kit at the 'park and ride'  nearly did for me.

Plus, I think that my body was actually saying that the 38th marathon of 2014 was testing my mental resolve. Anyway, trotted in at 3:30:17 so pleased with the time but not had a fulfilling day.

Yeh, I'm on the list, great stuff. Will be 39th marathon of 2014 and 5th or 6th Snod. Marathon brain tonight, cant remember how many I've done!
