Kirsty ignore David's comments. He's just a troll that thinks he's funny.
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
kirsty first off, read davids previous threads! he doesnt take anything seriously!!
take everything he says as utter nonsense! and then look at the OP and tell me he wanted a serious response??

I wonder if David behaves the way he does because he is so frustrated about his inability to ever satisfy a woman?
Ah well, can't blame me for trying
"I've trained as hard as everyone else".
How do you know how hard everyone else has trained? Some people train six days a week, clocking up 50 or 60 (and more) miles a week.
Many train four or five days a week, covering 30 or 40 miles a week.
Have you done that?
Only because 9/10 forum threads have you hi-jacking them and they always make me laugh
especially when someone totaly loses it with you
What DO you mean, David?
Anyhoo - it's a serious question!
Kirsty says that she's trained as hard as everyone else, but I question that assertion. I'm just inviting her to tell us firstly how she knows what training everyone else has done, and what training she has done.
I think I'll have a long wait for an answer, though.
then you can piss all over davids time

For a new runner getting out and doing any miles can be just as hard (if not harder) and take just as much time as an experienced runner who is doing 60 miles a week.
Nice to see the same elitist idiots still attacking and belittling those new to our sport.
I don't say you're not training, but really, you are NOT actually training as hard as everyone else.
Getting of the sofa and out the door can be hard, but it does not amount to TRAINING hard.
Not everyone is out to run a PB, or to get faster and faster.
Its about the motivation. I know many people that run half/maras in memory of folks they've lost solely to raise money.
The charity makes money, the runner gets a medal that says "Hey I did that half marathon and raised x for charity" and its a memento of the day they set out on that challenge and acheived it.
Unless you are in the elite, the only person you are ever running against is yourself or maybe a couple of mates you want to better. Maybe award the medals on personal accomplishment that you enter at the start of the race or on signup?
You choose the target you want to shoot for (PB/Sub 2/Sub 1.45/Finish) and only if you meet that target do you get a medal. Might be a bit more interesting, but nearly impossible to manage in a large field
Hi Kirsty, welcome to the forum!
Don't worry about being new & fitting in - with lines like:
... it about taking part and achieving something not winning. You need to take your head out of your own a***! ...
you'll be fine!
DF3 - how about you show us your training plan & results, and then Kirsty can show you hers?
