So you were last in your category then.

Agree with Seren - you turned up and put in the effort when others CBA. Well done you!

Well done Vicky. You gotta be in it to win it!

Did you get a prize?

03/12/2009 at 19:19

Hey, you can only beat the competition that shows up on the day. A victory won fair and square.

I did beat a few non-veterans (men and women) though!
03/12/2009 at 19:33
Yeah, well done. Doesn`t matter if you was the only one. You won. Now did you get a nice trophy.

Well done Vicky - you've gotta be in it to win it, so what if you were the only one

Enjoy the glory

Congratulations!!  Well done and good for you for running.

If it makes you feel any better, I won the prize for being the "best dressed female gorilla" at this year's Great Gorilla Run.  So you won a prize for being a good runner, who did at least turn up, I won a prize for being a hairy ape like creature!!!

Kryten - i hope your butt freezes to the step and you end up with piles!

Vicky - do you mind stepping aside and letting me enter next year?

03/12/2009 at 20:58
Forget that, i've just realised i come in the next category up  
03/12/2009 at 22:19
Well done Vicky, I've never won anything in my life.
03/12/2009 at 23:56
CB, always remember the golden rule. Its not the winning, its the taking part that counts.
03/12/2009 at 23:59
A big part of winning is making it to the start line - you beat thousands of others who didn't make it that far!

You deserve the prize Vicky.  You were the first over the line in your age category.
04/12/2009 at 21:26
I found out today that I will be getting a prize as I was the 3rd lady veteran overall (there were other veterans, just not in my specific category!). Whoo!
