Padams - well done, I know those bike paths are never the fastest and the wind was quite brisk at times today. The fact that BF ran 2:31 tells you that the course/conditions wasn't fast. Although 69 by Marigold the week after 2:20 is impressive 

RB - great run Sounds like a great race...although those final few miles sounded really tough. The field did seem to be first class. Recover well.

Rested on Monday and Tues after London and then managed 50M for the rest of week. Another 37M commute planned this week, last one before the 100km

Padams - you've put us all to shame...that is some weekend!

AL_P wrote my report for me Fun running with you, I've got a good photo of us at 12M, send me a message and I can sent it over. Anyway, kept him in sight for last 10M and finished in 2:33:53, happy with that. Legs got a bit sore which slowed me down in the last 10k, but feel good this morning (could run up the 100 stairs at the underground station). I was impressed to see TT fly past me at 25M

Huge amount of sympathy to Jools,I'm very impressed by your pragmatic attitude towards it.

Well done all. Fab day out!

CC2 - really sorry to hear that I hope things improve asap

CW, CD - not sure how I had forgotten we had started 10m back last year....my memory...must be old age

The VLM folks have posted the 5min timelapse version of the marathon route over on FB....some smart alec has posted a comment to say the Manchester version is only 4m47sec long

Feel rough...too many carbs...will feel fine by Sunday morning I'm sure. Uncertain about what to wear, I can get really cold and memories of the 2008 hail storm in Docklands are still with me.

I see the champ start runners are starting 10m behind the elites this year (pity, I liked crowding the elites on the start line) and we'll get chip rather than gun times for the first time

....can't believe that Prince has died, what a year

The ES does have a habit of completely over-blowing stories

I got stuck naming a couple of those fred folk!

Now marders turns up (a 7min PB would be impressive indeed!)...just need Pug, Dull and JEJ and we'll have the 2008 bingo set complete

CD - wow, a stddev of 108 sec is super consistent!

Padams- 20 x 300m sounds like hard work to me...

ahh, a true thread reunion

For me 2008 was the year I ran across Tower Bridge with our future media superstar...

I think Padams (great 5,000 BTW) and Crab always said 2007 was warm but not too hot...cost me my first sub245. This is my 10th consecutive London...avg of 2:35:03 with a stddev of 180 sec...is this consistency or just dull running?

Lev - I was running along regents canal this lunchtime giving people a wide berth..what a sh*tty thing to happen. Hope you recover quickly. 

2M @ MP-10 sec felt far too hard, but it always does. Not liking the Arctic blast that is predicted
