    Fingers crossed I win an upgrade….The amount of loo visits I need when Im nervous is ridiculous, a nice loo will definitely be a bonus!!

    Just finished reading the most inspiring book which was James Cracknell ‘Touching Distance’ as he is much quicker runner than me and it would be an honour to run along side this amazing athlete, olympian, farther and husband even if it was only for half a mile! fingers crossed.

    Wow, fingers crossed that I am one of the lucky 8.
    My boyfriend ran the 2012 London marathon and started at the green start as the charity he was running for had some special places. He said it was excellant plus he saw some famous faces. I can’t let him out do me, I’ll never beat his time of under 4hrs but at least I can say I also mixed with the celebs!

    Good luck everyone.

    I would love to be in the green starter area to be able to keep up with Ewan Thomas (for about a mile)

    Great, it’s my birthday on the 29th feb! As I won’t have a birthday date to celebrate this year (leap year) :-( then winning this prize would more than make up for it ;-).

    Good luck everyone, hope the training is going well!
    Mike.

    Celebrity start?! Brilliant, so there will be loads of cameras to let the whole world see me fall slowly (or indeed very quickly) behind all the Olympians….! Fantastic opportunity though – I like the idea of no queues! Here’s hoping!!

  20. 24 Diane McKenna February 13, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Would love a place with the celebs. I carried the Olympic torch on Elland Road past the Football Ground in June for my charity work and felt like a celeb then so have got the bug!! Do I get a kit bag anyway though?
