RW F7 – aiming for 3.15

Tiny - many congratulations, that is just awesome! Tried to spot you in the crowds but it was way too hard.

Seems that I may have spotted Lit but only after she had zoomed past at immense speed (very well done Lit btw.)

BR - so sorry to hear things didn't go to plan. As others have said that's still a brilliant time to bag. Not many people have the wheels fall off and still end up with a massive PB. Very well done!

Well done Andy!

Saw Roundman and someone else shouted out but couldn't see who, sorry

I think I saw Lit too (white fife vest?)

Steve, amazed you even ran today after the injury then illness. Very well done!

Looking forward to hearing how everyone got on.

Not long got home. What a totally awesome day!

Met Angela at Lewisham but took longer than expected to get to the bench. Thankfully the Puffsta and Sean were still there (great to finally meet you Sean - relieved to see the mankini stayed at home). Also saw Angela's mentee Hellsbells as well as Reg who was in the voting the year before last with myself and Shady Ady.

Sorry we missed the rest of you

I then made my way to mile 10 and on arrival had the pleasure of running into sense who was brilliant company and stayed for the duration.

Didn't manage to see everyone but I think our hit rate was pretty decent. Bagged the crucial one, Superman Tim Jones who was looking ridiculously speedy! Thanks everyone for seeking out the Swiss flag, it was almost impossible to spot you all so we needed you to help us out, much appreciated!

Myself and sense are also now adopted Swiss citizens after attracting the attention of a raft of la Suisse runners

By the time most of you had gone through it didn't leave much time to get to mile 15 so I parted company with sense and headed for the finish.

I waited for quite a while but didn't see anyone. Just as Inwas about to give up I spotted BRB and got to congratulate her on her immense achievement.

Next stop was the pub where I met up with Angela, Sarah A, Shady Ady, Minni, Brolish and several others. The odd shandy or two rounded off a great day nicely.

Well done everyone who ran today. Some immense performances. Anyone who runs and completes a marathon is a superstar!

Sorry, bit short on time.

I will be near the 10 mile marker on the right hand side. Look for the Swiss flag just after you pass under the big footbridge. I'll be near the barriers opposite the school.

After that I'll cross on the river boat to the isle of dogs around the 15 mile mark on the left after you emerge from the underpass roundabout.

Sense - 10 mile marker is quite quiet. Not sure about 8 miles, that might be ok but around Surrey Quays shopping centre has been very busy in previous years.

You're more than welcome to join me at mile 10. Look for the flag

I'm heading for the Chandos after if anyone fancies meeting up. I'm seeing Shady Ady there and hopefully Angela and several others. Will probably be there from around 2pm onwards.

Good luck everyone. Hope to see you at the bench. Will be there around 8:50/8:55.

Awesome stuff.

Sean - I am seriously considering not coming after that last threat of bodily exposure. Tan or no tan, not even with the body of Adonis could you carry that look off. And above all, just think of the chafing!

Reddish t-shirt with ANNE in white letters (same as my avatar). Black shorts. Over-stocked gel belt. Raspberry-pink trainers with lime green trim.

No problem Sean but please can you rule out the mankini so we can all look forward to Sunday without that uncertainty hanging over us

Ruffles - I'll let you off Reckon you'll be on Blue then.

Wonder if I should get up a bit earlier. Thing is I'll have my mate with me who's running his first marathon. Not sure whether he'll want to be up that early. Would mean getting the train 30 mins before. I'll see.

lol  

I do sympathise with the you all. Last Saturday I swear my knee was crippling me. Usually I'd be able to deal with that as an obvious ghost pain but I'd had trouble with it for a few weeks before. On the day - nothing! Absolutely nothing. 

So hang in there. You know it's all in the head. Just focus on stuffing your faces with carbs and that'll take your mind off it

Ruffles - epic fail on info provision there. No start colour, no target time. Tut!
