Well done Nicky. I remember you shouting you'd seen me at Shrews half as you dashed past at hurricane speed 

I have "Talked" a workmate into getting a charity place for next year, I'm sure she won't regret it !

Hotel is booked for next year,  better deal than I've ever got before, I don't think they realise the date has changed yet ! Still I have it confirmed so doesn't matter to me.

i totally agree and can see both sides of the matter.

this is a MASS event so don't ever expect to get a clear road ahead of you but also it is annoying when walkers don't move to the sides as they are supposed to.

i am a slower runner and did 2hrs 30, with a "wee" stop on the way !

thsi was my 5th and ill be back for many many more.

my advise is to just get on with it and take the positives from the day, you will be a happier person if you do this.

Vix / stringy, I didn't hear you, we're you shouting "oggy oggy oggy" coz that's all I heard for the first few miles !

you should have ran up to me, I'm a bit deaf.

great running.

today I feel good, tired from the drive but legs are ok and stairs are doable !

off work till Wednesday so plenty of time to relax and re charge but I am considering a nice litt,e recovery run ? Hmmmm....

Just got home, finally !

another great year and I managed 2hrs 30 with a bad knee, I'm happy with that and 5 mins quicker than last year 

was good till miles 6 then Nagano to get some stiffness in the knee, walked a bit then set off again till mile 8. By now it was not liking it and letti g me know big time !

got to the boost zone somehow and from then just a little ish miles to go.

saw sponge cake on the coast road then a nice lady helped me finish, I had apparently be her pacemaker for the last 6 miles 

next year I'm putting in some serious training and getting a better time.

well done done everyone today, see you all next year
