lolz ........ actually I would probably be in the top half of any given field, hence why Im bringing this up now and not say 6 months ago

 

remind us what your HM time is, David?

6 months then, the last occasion.

Explains a lot.

Its faster than 2 hours and slower than 1 hour 30

Oh, well then you *might* have just slipped into the top half of the last HM I did... no medals at all, though.

19/02/2013 at 12:29

Haha, so youre saying that a 1.31 time in your last HM would have only just scaped the top half ........thats why I avoid those and do the big ones with rank amateurs

so did you finish in the top half and do a time under 1.30 then?

ha, no, I'm saying that the 430th person out of 860 got a time 'faster than 2 hours and slower than 1 hour 30', so it'd depend which end of the scale you were at!

And no, I only did 1:30:49 that time. 

19/02/2013 at 12:35

haha check you out ......... well Im somewhere around the 'middle of that time frame' shall we say

I bet you were gutted you couldnt eek out another 50 seconds over that course ......

Anyway my time for the next few years will be a lot faster than Oscar Pistorius!!

Why should I not get medal just because I'm a slow runner? I've trained as hard as everyone eles, I've raised hundreds for my charity, I will turn up on the day and I will finish. It may take me 3 hours to complete my first ever half marathon in two weeks time, but I will most certainly have earnt myself a medal for my efforts!

Giving medals to the top half of the feild is simply elitist!

"I've trained as hard as everyone eles"

Cmon now Kirsty ...... are you sure. A little birdy told me that apparently you went to the dessert counter at lunch ...... not sure if that double chocolate gateux is part of your training regime.

How dare you judge me David! You know nothing about me, my life or my training. You are implying I am carrying a little more weight than I should be, a massive assumption to make, just because i run slow, it doesnt make me fat. There are just some of us in life who weren't built for running but we give it a go anyway, we do it because we enjoy it and not because we want to be the next Paula Radcliffe, it about taking part and achieving something not winning. You need to take your head out of your own a***! And maybe try showing a little respect, encouragement and support to your fellow runners, you never know we may just fly past you and beat you to the finish line!

Kirsty ignore David's comments. He's just a troll that thinks he's funny.

19/02/2013 at 12:59

Don't get involved Kirsty! Dave just LOOOVES (said in best Back to the Future Marty's grandma voice) being in his playpen, ooh I mean, Controversial

Don't worry Kirsty DF3 knows very little about anything, and even less about running

I wonder if David behaves the way he does because he is so frustrated about his inability to ever satisfy a woman?

lolz ......... finally someone bit ....... it took me a while ........... but I got there

To be honest, in a forum like this which has very few 'newbies' and mostly regulars, it becomes harder to poke and prod cause everyone knows what youre doing.

Thats what I like about posting on the Telegraph and Daily Fail sites because there is enough new people coming through to get outraged by your posts lol.

If this is what turns you on, perhaps Flump 85 is right
