Great stuff madbee . Looks a lot like my splits at VLM 2010 and I did 3:38..... Just sayin'

Boston weather looking good. 16 degrees and southwesterly wind. Ok 5 degrees less would be better but I think I can live with that

Inspiring story, SGB. gives me hope as I get older ....

Race number is 13636, wave 2, corral 5 so probably a 10.30-10.40 start.

I hate that tunnel as I nearly vommed in it after some Lucozade. Shudder ....

Packed up & checked in

Flying to London tomorrow afternoon and the Boston flight leaves at 6pm. Not sure how expensive the hotel WiFi turns out so I may or may not beoonline over the weekend.

Take care all

Righty-ho. Packed up & checked in. Flying tomorrow afternoon. Hope they have affordable WiFi at the hotel but wouldn't be surprised if it was 20 bucks per day

Will try to be online but may not if too expensive. Flying to Chicago the day after the marathon (great idea.....) to pick up our rental car for a 3000 mile trip to LA back home on May 16. Bring it on

Wish me luck. I really need it :-/ did 5 miles with 2 @ MP and didn't enjoy it. Back really stiff and achy. I hope it won't feel like that on Monday. All things considered its a bit of a miracle that I've come this far and survived 70+ mileage weeks. I reckon that this one will have been my last stint on P&D as any fast running causes the back to spasm and that's not much fun. I love being on this forum though and will really miss you guys .....

Whatever happens on Monday I will try not to be shit . And I can always call my result my post injury PB

We may well be on the same flight, superman. 6pm BA out of LHR? And yes, we are flying to Chicago the next day (what WAS I thinking??) to pick up the rental car for our 3000 mile trip across the US

Natty: our hotel is right at the corner of the finish area, so that should be pretty convenient

Thanks everyone for the goodluck vibes. I sure need it

Right, off to pack now
