    48 - NEVER!!!!

    well thats it - I'm 48 as well so serious training now to kick in - I like a challenge

    of course you seem to have a fine head of hair so it must have been the chill factor that slowed me down (disgraceful attempt by me to find reasons for being slower LOL)

    As for the Marathon - well done you in getting in - thats a marvellous experience that I think is 10 times better than the GNR crowds, atmosphere, sense of achievment, pain, excitment, scenery/historic marks - oh, and did I mention pain? LOL

    put me down as a sponsor if you decide to raise some pennies.

    Hiya fossil lol. Hope you got home ok. did you check your time yet? Spill!

    Impressed on the london one! It was suggested, but I think I'll stick with the shorter ones :rolleyes:

    I'm stiffer this year than I remember being this time last, but not as bad I thought I'd be after last night :eek: Time will tell eh ...

    Any excuse... the hair lol!

    Now you are worrying me with the challenge....I feel a Nike Plus moment coming on.... thats the closest I'm going to get to a personal trainer I think.

    Ian's still working away so I've not got him to kick my butt. All suggestions welcome :rolleyes:

    Well, this fossil managed 2hrs 22mins and 51 seconds
