I'll second that. Feeling very jealous though - I'd love to be running this weekend.

Does anyone know when you can submit an entry for next year?

Jealous as well! I "think" I'm up to my lucky 5th app next year, so should get in regardless... In theory...

I'm on for a PB (providing I finish) - 2008 1st timer :d

2009 entries open around lunchtime on the Sunday I think - online entires anyway.

I'm looking forward to a PB on Sunday too as another 1st timer!

The marathon entries are just online next year so sign up as quick as you can...

Good luck to all of the Forum members who'll be out there on the streets of London on Sunday. Er, runners rather than spectators.
Just bear in mind that because of all the hard work and sacrifice you've had to endure in preparation for this day; you deserve a great result.
Maybe you could spare a microscopic thought for the rest of us sat at home who'll have to suffer the usual apalling TV coverage!
(I predict ample exposure to both the elite/leading groups; and to the fancy dressers who are always good for an interview.... Nothing at all of the legion runners who prepare just as diligently as the elite, as well as hold down full-time jobs... ). I'd better sto there before I launch into a full-on rant...........:embarrassed:

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OUR MARATHONERS!:d

The weather report is not good :confused:

If correct then it's just about the worst conditions for me...














but hey, the weather forecasts have been wrong before :)

I'm not jealous, it's far too far for my middle aged frame. In the words of a sitcom character whose name I forget,
"I'll 'ave 'alf"

Anyway, I have every respect for those of you who do them. Best of luck for Sunday.

I picked up my number last night and they had the BBC coverage music playing, that got the goose bumps up for Sunday that's for sure!!!

Trinity, it's looking like a trendy bin bag look for the start if the forecast is right :(

Just had to add my best wishes to you all for Sunday.

I never thought the day would come when I wished I was out there with you,even though I`m plainly not fit enough at the moment to run 26 miles.

Heres to next year.......

Trinity.

Fair to say that the weather forecast is what most people wanted after last year.

You`re one of the few who loves to run in the heat I think..................:d

I know... I can't have it my way every year I guess :cool:

Maybe it'll help me to keep running if it's wet, rather than stop to catch some rays like I did last year...
