Remember, you can also meet folks from this thread while on the run.  That's how I met Orbutt the first year.  Just take a look at the Rogue's Gallery to familiarize yourself with who is who.

Looks like I should have sent out more "Bank Energy not time" wristbands this year. Sorry.

zuluboy - that's Bruce Fordyce's company.  They offer  course tour, the service you mention, and a rocking after party at the aquarium.  I have not used them, but I am thinking about it this year for their 3 drop off places.

Roger - If you're only just recovering from flu (particularly the nasty man-flu strain) then the chances are that LSR would be harder than expected. Well done! Now enjoy the taper.

Rodeoflip - Fingers crossed that what ever it is easily fixed. Hopefully a short break will see it better and you ok for Paris.

Some setbacks can be overcome even at this late stage. I broke a toe at this stage in training for Paris 2012. I had a week of no running at all in the taper because of it and could hardly walk for a few days after breaking it. I ran what still is my marathon PB that year.

Yup, I agree.  Broke a toe in the lead up to Tokyo and still managed a good pb.  Just rest it up.

I am starting to worry about missing stuff already - I moved my Championchip over to this year's shoes just to be sure I don't forget it.  Now I just have to remember the right shoes.

Dannirr - is unpaid leave not an option?

Danni - can't you take a sickie ? . All the daddies here are sugar free. Emmy has a time machine.

Jimbob - take care !


Well, the real problem is that I and a partner own the company - and although that might seem like it gives me free reign, it does not because you want all employees to feel like they get a fair deal too.  So although I have as much vacation time as I want, I don't want to be one of those bosses that let everyone else do all the work while I reap all the benefits.

I need a bit of help here.  How do I get the entire month of October, as well as the first 2 weeks of November off work without losing my job?

Got the Chicago Marathon in early October, just been accepted for the Marine Corp Marathon in late October, and will be going over to London in early November for a little car "race".

I need a sugar daddy.

baljc - there are others with more experience than mew will chime in hopefully, but I would think you can complete quite easily with your base, your talent and - most importantly - a good race day strategy that prevents you going too hard.   However, the biggest factor will be your recovery after surgery (f that's needed).  If you will really be happy with a finish (as opposed to a "decent Comrades medal"), then I think you can do it.

Well done Eggy and all - some great running today.

I did the Atlanta Marathon today and added 5miles to make it a 31 miler.  Rained all the way through but it was a lot of fun.
