Mamafox, that's so funny as any time I dream about races it usually involves forgetting my shoes! Must be a sign that you'll be running London next year, having run a GFA time

Good luck to Emmy on your 100th today!! Hope you enjoy the race

Big G - enjoy the parkrun. My OH is doing one this morning but I have opted for a leisurely brekkie.

Shades - turns out that the grandstand tickets were for the blue start so no good Poor little koala is suffering with his throat and I feel mean trying to avoid him. His brother had the same thing last week,.

I spent 10 quid on beetroot juice and shots alone but it gave me the runs yesterday so I'm now avoiding it!

Big G - a case study?! You should be proud. But don't feel you have to do the thing for work, I can understand not wanting to be too personal in a work situation.

Mamafox, yes, I think there is a tracking thing you can use. I'm number 27542. I've just managed to wangle 4 free wristbands for the grandstands at the finish from someone on FB. Just need to make sure that my mum can pick them up tomorrow. Don't feel so bloated today but bad news is little one has come home from school with a sore throat

Shades - I won't be sorry not to see the sun, but I agree it does look better on the TV. I think I may stop with the beetroot juice now as I have quite loose bowels! Sorry if TMI, it could also be nerves.

Big G, I think that's great news re the return to work. Your employer sounds really flexible and understanding. I know what you mean re returning to a job you don't love, but I think the routine and structure as you say will be good. Plus it's always easier to consider and find alternatives when you're already working I think. My friend's widow had only just started a new job 3 weeks before she died so he's not really had any time off - but I think that's partly him and needing to cling to the routine. Good thinking to incorporate the WAY sessions and counselling into your work agreement. I hope the counselling is helping. Have you had any contact with Claire's sister since Steph's funeral?

Big G - my son got a selfie with Mo at the North London HM and also one with gebrselassie at the expo last year.

3 miles this morning and now for a haircut to try and shift some weight

Sorry, cant add to Freemers post on my phone...
Slowkoala, 27542 - yellow vest with black shorts, blue trainers.
Not sure I'll make the bench either as I'll be ridiculously early probably but will try and pass it on my way to the green start from the station.

Shades/MF - beetroot juice tastes OK at the expos when you just try a tiny sample but any more is yuk! 400g carbs yesterday and felt so bloated by the end. May try and eat the bulk of my carbs on Sat morning so I don't feel stuffed the night before. Looks like wind and rain on Sunday but I'll take that over sun.

Apparently Denise Lewis is going to interview Paula at the halfway mark and Paula has told her that she isn't stopping so Lewis will have to run and talk. It would be great if you were closeby at the time!

Thanks Westy, I'm hoping the breeze won't feel too bad because of the crowds. Enjoy the expo, Madbee and Millsy.
