Good luck Rocky

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Good luck Rocky

Just wanted to publicly wish our Rocky the best of luck for her epic (34 mile) run tomorrow. Rocky, hope it goes really well and that you have sufficient energy for a stiff drink afterwards! All the best from me- I shall be thinking of you. :wave: :luv: :kneel:

To push oneself to the outer limits and succeed is an amazing feat. Fingers crossed for you, I do hope it is a rewarding experience - afterwards! :kneel: :kneel: :cocktail:

Ah - I am so touched. Thank you so very much. It means a lot. I have woken up with a sore throat but I am working on the basis that it is psychosomatic :?

I will report back.

Thanks again.

Me too! :shock: Some people do amazing things. A gardening forum friend in France has just run the Paris marathon - her first. My mind is boggled.

Good luck Rocky! :kneel: :tu:

Thank you so much all. It is 3am and I am up to have toast and banana before heading off for a 5am start. Due to be 25 degrees at the start 30 by the end - yikes! I'm loving the vicarious support! The race finishes at a little beach bar so hopefully I will be in shape to raise a :cocktail: to you all :D

Thanks again all. Run done and I absolutely loved it. It took 6 hours and 5 minutes. I was second lady and fourth overall. I hope it isn't boastful but I am so chuffed with myself. And so exhausted!! The last person was 3 hours behind me so opportunity for a soak in the sea and a celebratory :cocktail: I raised a glass to the Wildies.
