    A friend put me on to a FB page called "Social Ultra". They are quite a large group of runners who organise events etc. They are doing the London Marathon in reverse on the same day but staggering starts from 2am, 3am and 4am so you're finished prior to official start. It seems well organised and it's FREE ! May consider it !

    >.>.>. Fast Forward to Sunday 26 April 2015, and the LONDON MARATHON. Well Done to all who took part. Well Done to the many who raised a lot of money for charitable causes. I salute you and give you a big clap ... clap  clap  clap


    Tens of thousands of runners are taking part in the 35th London Marathon.
    Organisers said more than 37,800 people are expected to complete the 26.2 mile course from Blackheath to The Mall, making it the biggest in the event's history.
    Many competitors are raising money for charity and hoping to beat the 2014 record amount of £53.2m.
    Paula Radcliffe, 41, a former winner and the current world record holder, is running her final marathon.

    More on this story here:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-32463424

    Do you know anyone taking part?

    Nice post Jan, don't worry about no-one commenting, half of our lot are too busy at DUK. Ever wonder why you bother. I tried the old diplomacy routine at the 102 thread and the Aussie never even came back to me. He was too busy at the flog yesterday, litters his posts at our gaff with links to his blog, then does a runner to DUK and does the same there. I am up for a bit of click baiting and hit whoring, rofl  but that bloke is taking the piss.  affraid

    We live quite close to the start and so went up to shout encouragement at about the 1 mile mark.  The most noticeable things were the ever popular running rhinoceroses, a bare foot Jesus with large cross (see here http://www.mirror.co.uk/usvsth3m/man-running-london-marathon-dressed-5585555 ) and a very old bloke half walking half shuffling who looked about done at a mile which was a bit of a worry.

    Anyway all that shouting was exhausting so we went home for a well deserved rest...

    @Dillinger

    Think I would have been quite exhausted at all the cheering too  lol!

    I've never seen so many runners it must have been quite exciting - especially seeing all the costumes. Did you have a particular one that stays in mind?

    I thought Paula Radcliffe's farewell run was touching ...

    Talking of marathons ! Our daughter- in-law is doing a charity half a marathon 'Moon Light Walk' soon - she has been training well.

    All the best Jan

    My lot have been too concerned with the Bournemouth v Bolton game to worry about marathons. I'm not really a football fan but it was rather exciting to see them go up. My husband and son have been season ticket holders for years through good times and bad so they are both rather excited. Having said that, my cousin's son ran in the Madrid marathon yesterday - he finished but I know no more than that.

    Can you believe it is the London Marathon this Sunday ...

    Will you be taking part?
    Do you know anyone who is taking part?
    Will you be watching?
    Perhaps you are planning to go up to London and watch ...

    I will be taking part, laying on a sofa, watching the box. I know many sports people, almost all carrying injuries and long term health problems. From knackered backs to knee and hip problems. One of my best friends (a PE teacher is in Hospital as I write) having a knee replacement. Never lift more than your wallet or a bottle of wine. You know it makes sense, why fight it. mrgreen

    Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law 50yrs is so young. Sincere condolences to all.

    I think keeping as fit as we can must help us all as we get older. However, we choose to do it - walking, running, dancing, using the gym etc it should be something we enjoy.

    Thankyou Jan Smile

    I've read that one of the best exercises is walking, a brisk walk could be the king (or queen Smile ) of exercise, no need to run marathons, just do something (not including lifting a glass)

    Walking is great ... you knew I was going to say that Smile
    Another plus is you don't have to pay any money to enjoy a walk, as you may have to with gym memberships, but yes, the important thing is to move!!!

    THOUSANDS of attention seekers ran 26 miles across London just to make everyone else feel bad about themselves.

    The self-indulgent runners brought the capital to a standstill in a pathetic bid to prove how fantastic they are while the rest of the country had two bags of crisps for breakfast.

    Runner Emma Bradford, who completed the marathon in a ‘personal best’ of two hours and 58 minutes, admitted she is motivated entirely by spite and the prospect of humiliating others.

    She said: “Tomorrow I’m going to go round the office asking everyone how their weekend was and then I’m going to pull out my medal and watch as they realise that they are worthless.”

    Non-runner Stephen Malley, from Stevenage, said: “The only reason for someone to run 26 miles while dressed as a tea cup is because they’re a fascist who wants to turn this country into a health-based dictatorship controlled by runners and cyclists and throw people like me in jail.

    “The London Marathon is a neo-fascist rally. You can ignore it if you want, but that’s what’s happening.”

    Not DIAGNOSED diabetic might be nearer the mark.

    Sympathies.

    A friend lost his father in his early seventies, although he had had "heart disease" for a long time. He lost a son at 34 or 36 from a massive heart attack. In retrospect I can see "Metabolic syndrome" AKA insulin resistance writ large. Currently approaching 70 himself he is shitting bricks, although I can't persuade him to give up high carb low fat vegetarianism.

    My mother's brother wasn't much older than me when he went the same way. Now I know more about the family history I am certain he also had "metabolic syndrome" if not actual diabetes.

    I've never been capable of high level exercise due to the hypoglycemic crashes but I've always done a lot of walking, gardening, housework etc. IF I'd known earlier that it was the Hearthealthywholegrains that were to blame I might have been joining you on the start line . . .
