I entered hoping that I may one day be able to show the grandchildren my Olympic medal...
Haha, that was my reason for entering too! And it will be pretty damn cool to cross the Olympic finish line ahead of Usain Bolt
Sod it, changed my mind. Unlikely to be in PB shape by then but all being well should still be able to justify my allocated zone in order to avoid this dreaded bottleneck.
It also gives me a chance to reccy the stadium layout for my planned sneaky entrance disguised as an Olympic mascot to watch the men's 10,000m and women's heptathlon finals.
Me and my mate Kevin, yesterday...
I'm in !!!!
Just checked my email after reading the posts above.... absolutely over the moon and shocked !!! Makes up a little bit for not getting into VLM12...
Grump, grump, grump. I wonder if there are any charity places...
Can't believe it if I'm honest. Look at the amount of people on this thread alone that have applied so just think how many who don't come on here have applied as well.
Like people have said, if it isn't for you fair enough. But to get the chance to run inside the Olympic Stadium (in the Olympic year) is massive.
