Cakesy - you are clearly massively talented. If you wanted to you could probably make it to elite level. Steve Way esque. Party boy turns elite runner! But you can't just suddenly start running big miles, you have to respect your body and build up. For my sub 3 I ran up to 86 miles per week, but I don't have the talent you do and I've built up to that over a number of years.

Yay, more ladies. I can't help with fitting in training around a baby though, I just have myself and a cat to worry about.

I was apparently ahead of 84% of the men, which may be a more relevant statistic.

Well, that's not at all embarrassing is it?

Lorenzo - purple hoody, looking cold - that was me! 

I saw someone cheat. A large lady with a pen 7 blue number, walking towards the finish at mile 22 ish when I passed her still at sub 3.15 pace at the time. She had obviously ducked the barrier on the highway after Tower Bridge.

Ah, so that was TT in the pub with the red hair. I was the frozen looking one in the purple hoody. I was wondering who on earth you could be but I was too cold to ask! I clearly missed that on the forums.

I didn't hang around too long outside the Red Lion but did pretty much have to force my beer voucher on someone (was it Marders?) before retreating to the relative warmth of The Chandos. 

I didn't die and I probably got a better result than the training deserved - 3.16.18. Hopefully back to sub 3 standard for next year!

Survived the run but it bloody hurt from 17 miles on. That what happens when you do no training! 3.16.18 is probably faster than my training deserved but I reckon I'll pay the price for a few days to come!

I couldn't find any of you in the pub so went upstairs to join the Fetchies then went to claim my free burger from GBK. Where were you all hiding?

Fingers crossed for you Jools!

When did you boys turn into wimps? HTFU, it's a race and race attire is shorts and vest unless the temperature is below zero or you're up in the fells. Wear gloves, ditch them when you get going.

Right then, who wants to swap their sample of Lancome moisturiser out of the goody bag for my 2 pints of  free beer voucher for use in the Red Lion? I don't drink beer and I'm pretty sure most of you fellas don't use girly moisturiser.

I've always had my front and back checked in the Champs start. I'd love to ditch the back one as it makes you a target. Before I'd run the qualifying time I used to use folks with numbers on their backs to pick off. This year, having done about 20 miles per week, it will be me that the GFA girls will be hunting down

The kit bag is bloody tiny. My backpack does not fit in it. I may have to buy a cheapo smaller bag. 

Apologies for not reading or contributing for ages. My mum died and everything went to shit. Onwards and upwards.
