I see the champ start runners are starting 10m behind the elites this year (pity, I liked crowding the elites on the start line) and we'll get chip rather than gun times for the first time

....can't believe that Prince has died, what a year

shocker about prince.

Maybe they are keeping the champs start people back a few paces to stop crazy people like my club mate from leading the marathon, which he did in 2013 at 800 metres! (incidentally he just came top brit and 17th overall at MDS)

Very good of you to read back, ES.  Sorry to hear of your woes and fingers crossed your careful recovery can continue to plan.  Better to hit 30 miles consistently for a few more weeks than to overdo things.  I will see you in Chicago - I have also stumped up my $210.

blimey Jools & ES off to the Windy City. We're out of sync on the majors. I'm in NY in November for no 5 and targeting Chicago in 2017 to complete the set. I was looking at the WMM wall in London EXPO yesterday imagining my name up there. Spotted a few names I recognised including me mate Steve who ran them all sub3.

The cost for international entrants in the States is very high ... 30 or 40 bucks more on Boston and Chicago, but New York is the ultimate Skankity Skank at about 100 dollars more. I understand extra postage costs but NY takes the wee wee.

just had a little 5 miler, squeezed the pace at the end and nearly got up-ended by a road sweeper person who decided to veer in front of me very suddenly.

Ahh never mind TickTock. ... I was there for an hour .... but still enough time to part with more money than intended ..... punted for the green VLM jacket, couldnt resist, plus some gels. I just flashed the Mastercard and it was done ..... similar snap decision making to when I purchased Spero's App controlled BB8 toy. I didn't need it, I just had to have it.

I have an FGFA bib with a little number 1 next to the number. Last year's sub3 again paying dividends for me after recently starting Paris Marathon from preferential Pen.

One more thing ..... I noticed the voucher for the free pint of London Pride states its "Valid for two pints" in the small print. Is that right? If so it'll be a rowdy one at the Red Lion.

Funnily enough Nodster I do have a couple of Boston jackets from last year's race .... The London jacket is the same. It's green though so doesn't go with a blue t shirt which is what I am currently wearing

Morning all .... i'm popping to the expo today .... I expect to arrive around midday. I don't plan to hang around too long but if anyone wants to stop for a quick cuppa ..... TickTock this time last year we bumped into each other .... I'll be in the same Purple Boston jacket.
