Cheers and don't worry I will. tbh, you're sponsoring the dog really, I'm just the tag-along Smiley

Lying in bed as my ankles no longer work. 

Managed to complete the London Marathon yesterday in 4 hours 54 minutes which I think is ok for a 45 year old who didn't start running until 4 years ago and 5 years ago was 18 and a half stone.

Currently raised 3700 (4500 roughly including gift aid) for teenage cancer trust.  Thanks to those of you who donated.  Hopefully this will go up and I might get in one way or another to 5k.

If anyone manages to get on to run it I'd massively recommend it.  It was a fantastic day.  People line the entire route shouting your name.  To be honest around mile 15 fat blokes outside a pub shouting 'go on keep going' does start to get a little irritating, but then it started to be helpful again around mile 22!

The roar of the crowd when you go round places like Cutty Sark and Canary wharf is brilliantly inspiring.

And as a further plus point I managed to completely avoid whatever happened in the football this weekend.  Looking on the website everything is ok yeah?

Well done dude. It was amazing experience this weekend. (first Swindon home game I missed since 2011) perfect timing.

I manage 3:17 and i'm walking like a penguin.  Smiley

Great stuff, well done Sax and Blinkpip.

I can only imagine the buzz of completing the London Marathon.

I did the Swindon half a few years ago and even that was great for people on the sides encouraging you, I can't even imagine what the London Marathon must be like.

Anyone from here doing the New Swindon Half in a couple of weekends time? I'm signed up, can't say I've trained enough but aiming to pull out something around 1 45. Would be good to see a few TEFers on the way round.

I'm there, day after holidays. going to struggle to get round in a smidge under 2 (literally 1:58 or so). still, nearly gave up in January thanks to two years worth of injuries, so just to get round this year is a start.
