Wendy, great job, taper time 

Born2run4. Does the online option use the certificate that is available on the Paris Marathon website? If so, do they sign and stamp it? Personally I would want my doctor to look at me and sign it. I went recently for a blocked ear and then pulled the cert out "oh, while I'm here" ...... I went on to him about it being a charity run and the certificate is more of a "waiver" for the organisers - races in the U.K. like London get you to certify yourself when you tick their Ts and Cs box. Races in France specifically need this document containing the wording Running Competition, and signature and Stamp. He signed and stamped. Personally I wouldn't use an online company ...... Be easier to just fake the cert and stamp, of the two I'd go with that.

Please someone get in there before Jimbob otherwise he's going to countdown to David Seaman.

Orbutt - 64 and counting (Bandit,C3PO,Bmmmmm).  Kenno can decide on the night, I hope he doesn't join us because that would mean Mrs K won't be running.  Perhaps RS will change her mind, should mark her down.

Spring races are well and truly here. good luck this weekend those doing halves. Wardi have a great time in Barca ... I have a couple of pals over there and will be stalking, please let me know your bib and i'll stalk you too if you like.

Selbs, sorry to hear you are having troubles on the home front. Hope everything goes smoothly.  It doesn't matter if you don't target the 2.40 in London this time .... you can continue to improve your marathon PB for many years. It's the short sharp stuff that goes first. I'm sure you have a few more tasty PBs to beat that stunning sub2.45 you got last year. Like you say have a few more weeks with a bit of focus, use some of that muscle memory ... you'll still go sub3 easy at London if you can put a bit more long stuff in the bank.

I'm currently back in training for a few more weeks .... recovered myself from Tokyo as best I could and trying to maintain what I have for Paris on April 3rd. 33 miles so far this week at varying paces/distances

Boquito ..... nothing wrong with a gentle 10 minute warm up although a couple of mile walk will do the job as well.

Matt2311 ... I'm pretty sure you can't defer your Paris Entry unfortunately

Foggy out there today .... popping out for a quick spin. Currently "reheating" my fitness so I can attempt to "have a proper go" in Paris. ..... mainly i'll be there for the beer.

the slices of orange they give out towards the end of Paris are really great, perfect timing and your body needs it.

towards the end of Florence they gave out this sweet sticky hot tea which made me wince at first but was surprisingly tasty ... plus I was licking my fingers for the last two miles trying to remove the stickiness which helped me take my mind off the fact that I could slip into a slow death march at any given moment

Quick question to the experienced ones...does your Garmin continue to work through the tunnels ok?

If you have a foot pod yes ..... But normal cheap garmin like my 110..... It will lose the signal in the tunnel, the clock will still tick, then it will find you again when you come out, but you will have a squiffy 12 minute mile followed by a 2 minute mile on your splits. Just keep it steady through there.
