Good luck this weekend wherever your running. "May your shoes have wings" "go hard or go home" etc.

Can Mo Farah win in London?

Make sure you fill the trough with swill. Those little piggies are going to need feeding. 

Oh and loads of tissues for after the match.  ;-)

Can Mo Farah win in London?

Seriously? They say imitation is a kind of flattery but seriously? Couldn't think of an original name?


I dont think Mo will win. He might run a new British record but there is too much experienced marathon runners around him.

Yep. Fantastic build up ruined by the one thing I have no control over.   3:03.20 in 38mph headwinds in last 4miles Blackpool marathon race report. 


White peak in 5 weeks for another pop at 2:50.00 - sub 3hr with hopefully  less wind

Ha ha. With pull outs thru injury I have been offered a club place in London on Sunday. Temping but probably (definitely) have blackpool marathon still in my legs.

Seriously!!!! I ran the marathon Sunday too. Brought my own gels which I prefer to do. Put them nicely in the sis belt that cost me ??4.99. Simples.

They said they wasnt providing sports drinks or gels so dont expect them.

I did the white peak in 2011. The wind wasn't too bad that year and only noticeable for the mile near the turnaround. Going to run at sub 3 pace not sub 2:50 then hopefully if the weather isn't too bad and I feel ok at 20/22miles I can use the downhill sections to pick time up.
