You did OK yourself Steve, although you looked in rather a lot of pain when you passed my support point at mile 22.

I didn't buy shoes, I was restrained. I did buy 5 pairs of socks for a tenner from More Mile though. And some Chia Charge nut butter, which is bloody lovely.

Marders, in 2012 I started right at the back of the Champs start and some of the Blue start had pushed ahead of me before the start. According to Po10 it took me precisely 13 seconds to cross the start line, compared to 7 seconds last year from maybe 6 rows behind the Elites.

LS21 WTF? That's outrageous. Don't suppose you got the reg plate to report them?

Toro, nope, 2nd. I'll have to run it again sometime. I was first in my category, but that's not good enough. I wonder when I can next randomly be in the vicinity of Dartford and NOT running a marathon the next day....

I have always been able to get all of my carbs in on 1900-2100 calories. Somewhere back at home I have spreadsheets where I worked everything out. I'll dig it out some time.

Ant, my target is 6 hours+ cheering by the roadside! Injury strikes again.

Now, I'm sure I say this every year, and I fear it's already too late for some, but during the carb load you should NOT be consuming more calories than normal. You are not exercising, you don't need them. The carb load is merely an alteration in the macros. Cut out protein and fat and replace with carbs, don't just add more and more carbs. 

There is a limit to how much glycogen you can fit in your body. Beyond that the body will simply convert the sugars into fat. You don't want to be carrying extra fat around with you.

Good luck for tomorrow folks. I'll try my best to scream at you all as you pass me and the Fetchies at mile 13/22. 

My London race of the weekend was Dartford parkrun. Post injury PB of 20.14 ish, which is frankly, rubbish. I can't wait to be fit again.

Ah, pub start, I'm on that one too Well technically I'm on the 'side of the road' start. Mile 13/22 at Fetchpoint. Look out for masses of red and yellow balloons.

They must have appealed. Our B team E leg runner was waiting in the pen when the incident that should have DQ'd them took place. Their runner (presumably final leg) set off when she should't have. May have been a mix up with the numbers, but she wasn't wearing the same number as the runner coming up to the finish line!
