Thanks. I'm in good shape though as I've been running for a few years and seriously training for the marathon since Sept.

All I need now are the generous folks from this site to donate a little to www.justgiving.com/stevesadler

We are all so privileged to be fit enough to enjoy driving our beloved Renaultsports. That's something the courageous children of Whizz-Kidz would only ever be able to dream about.

I hope you can help by supporting this fantastic charity.

To all 808 Forum members;

This equates to a £1.85 donation each

Please flex your credit cards and pledge me less than a the price of a pint of beer on

www.justgiving.com/stevesadler

Surely it's worth that for a few laps of a race circuit and you can be proud of yourselves for helping out some very disadvantaged children.

Thanks

Thanks doc for your tenner donation, it's very much appreciated. Yeah you have got the ball rolling, nice one. Just starting to crank it up now as the long run on tues was 18.6 miles. I've read that the real race begins at the 20 mile mark, which confirms your comment of the last 6 miles being the hardest.

Cheers & Happy Christmas

Anyone who is crazy enough to run that far deserves support for their cause, will log on and pledge some pennies, maybe even pounds.

Hi Steve, based on that recent Half Marathon performance you should be looking at 3:15 for London Big Smile Is that the time you had in mind ?

Howdi doc, When I started serious training in Sept I wanted a sub 4 hour. I now realise that a much better time is poss. Let's just say that my window now I think is 3:45 worst scenario and 3:15 tops.

The next three months traing will probably give me more info for a more accurate timeBig Smile
