Still waiting for mine too. I'm starting to think this is punishment for not answering the cheesy "what would this mean to you" questions.

I've not succeeded in any ballot for any race, and this was no exception.

I deserve a medal for perseverance.

Yes, you had to suck up to them to get in. I put 'It would be the greatest moment of my life. It would allow me to put behind me the years living on the streets of Central London as crack addict while working as a male prostitute and part time getaway driver. And it'd make my mum proud of me, at last.' I think it was something like that. But my memory's not so good these days.

Congrats to those who got in - I decided to enter on impulse last night, then got the email today to say I didn't get in

Damn that cheesy question that I didn't answer......

28/10/2011 at 18:06
Another rejection...... getting so used to these now. Anyone not want to run let me know.
28/10/2011 at 18:14
No email for me either!
28/10/2011 at 18:15

Ah.  I believe my answers were ''.'' and ''.'' respectively.

Fiddlesticks.

Got my email - unsuccessful

I didn't get in, but my daughter did so think I'll be going along to watch !

I got in, but my OH doesn't know yet.  Thought it was a scam when it arrived, as I wasn't expecting to hear until November.  Anyway, I am looking forward to it, bottleneck or not..

I did write a load of rubbish about it having a special big 0 birthday in March 2012...but I assumed that it was a genuine "out of the hat" ballot?

I got in and I left the cheesy question blank.

I am in and will really enjoy taking a look at the Olympic Park - I won't be there during the Olympics.  But as many people it wouldn't be disappointing (edit - If I hadn't got in).  Just have to decide whether to run Reading Half on the 1t April now.

Sorry to hear about all of you who didn't get in.

I expect the question is just so they can pick something out for the media.  Philpub clever use of the '.'   Not that it helped you any.

I've heard nothing yet

I just want to be able to get at my money now I've been unsuccessful.  I use a pre-paid card for all things online and the way it works with things like this, and preordering things, is they 'reserve' the amount on the card - it's called a 'balance adjustment' or something.  And it can take up to 30 bloody days for it to be returned for use!  I've also been overspending a bit this year so simply loading more money on isn't an option - the card has a limit for each year.  Sounds a pain, but the disadvantages are outweighed by the advantages - complete peace of mind when making online transactions for one.

My bf and I were both unsuccessful.

 But on the plus side we did get some tickets to the Paralympics athletics events

28/10/2011 at 22:15
I got in

I'm still waiting for an email to find out whether my son has, I'm glad he's not the only one who hasn't heard I was starting to panic that I entered his email address wrong!
28/10/2011 at 23:36

I'm not in. 

I reckon that answering the question with "Well, it will inspire me to stop giving crack to my  getaway driver in exchange for blow jobs and to take up running instead" might have gone against me.

Any idea why some of us havent heard yet? Both my partner and I havent heard yet ...........
