Yes ! Very excited to be coming to watch. The map on the VLM website is brilliant so I've been working on my race strategy :lol:

I am going to be at 20 miles making lots of noise( and will have ibuprofen and biofreeze

plus jelly babies and banana for emergencies) .The nearest DLR station is Blackwall if any of your friends and relatives are on the move.

In a funny way I wish I was doing it with you.........best of luck to you all you are all well prepared and will have a great day :biggrin:

The race starts relatively early so won't be warming up until well after Mid-Day i would've thought!



Keep well hydrated throughout - beer for the spectators and soft drinks for the runners!



Here's to a great day!

Thanks Jane for the support it was definitely very warm, had sunscreen on but arms legs & neck caught the sun! That man in his mankini must have got some serious tan lines!!
