right morning all, I'm Bupa 10k'ing as well. Meet up with you guys in the red zone for the start? If you are at a loose end i'll be hanging around the B at the A - Z meeting points in Green Park from about 9am, come and have a cuppa and a moan!  I'm not expecting fireworks on Monday, my fitness is in question, I've done nowt for the last couple of weeks bar plodding around trying to put miles back in the legs. I have been playing music again tho' but where there's band rehearsal there's beer drinking

Pistol101 - clearly, there's no hiding in those t-shirts .

List Fairy - going from the sublime to the ridiculous, can you put me down for the City of London Mile on 14th June.

are you doing the mass race RR or the ladies only? I'm in the mass race which is first I think. Anything for a bit of free bling

When I'm running two smells that really are most pleasant are beer and coffee. Running past a pub on a hot day or running past a Costa on a long run morning. Baked goods also hit the spot.

Hello Ness2 welcome to the madhouse. Paris is a fantastic race and you'll have a ball. We go to the pub and everything. Tell us a bit about your running background. Have you ran 26.2 before?

it's like a disease ...... this evening I've signed up for Florence ffs!  It's 6 weeks after the Dam so enough time to recover from Amsters and then simmer the training. THEN I've got to think about my Paris training. Oh well

Eggy, Jimbob - you are now my complete heroes. My first marathon (all those months ago last October) was 5 15 and I had resigned myself to just being a slow runner. Thanks for the motivation 

Thanks for saying Joanna. Actually I've been inspired and encouraged by many on this thread (including Eggy) to push on and work harder. It's a great place for that. I've been lucky in the sense that i've been able to go from one campaign to the next which helps. Eggy's recent marathon in Paris was a great moment for him and those of us who know him. Since his 2012 marathon PB, he has had various injuries and lay offs. It's very hard to come back from that, but in Paris this year he finally beat that PB 3 years later and seeing his reaction on the finish line video is a moment to savour. He's cool character but you can feel the emotion of it. That journey must have been difficult but he got the eye of the tiger and achieved what he set out to do. It's very satisfying when you put it together.

Hi
Claire my first marathon was 5:16:14. Good luck with cracking the 5. Have god training and get some miles in your legs and you'll take a good chunk off it. We're all at different places and paces at our running but we are all in the same boat, we are trying to do our best over 26.2, finish the distance , execute well and then get well blaggered in the pub after!
