hi everyone - I think this is the first time I've posted on this forum! Just wanted to say I agree with you all, Friday was great, I met so many inspiring people and took away such positivity from everyone and some great advice. Well done to everyone who got through to the next round! and I look forward to more forum chat with you all xx

It was so awesome to meet all of you on Friday, and to spend an entire day being around like-minded people who don't get tired of  "running" talk It was really great to meet all of you SO4, DS2 (neighbour), Clive, RRR, Karen G, Tony (onthebeach) and Emzie. You are ALL  just fab and you ALL have such amazing and humbling life stories... how they choose goodness knows but well done to everyone! PS, I had a lovely "chilly" weekend in the Peak District with friends after attending the Boot Camp. xox Caroline

have just tried uploading photo.... hope you all like it

this eve I did the most random food shop cos I was in a complete daze, I then went wt training and did a PB bench press, and now I've just written my 'vote for me' speech.... how on earth am I meant to sleep tonight!!!!

Hi everyone, I also somehow made it through... Not 100% sure how, but there you go!

Bootcamp was an amazing day and I was privileged to meet some really lovely people - Tigger kept me smiling all day, Jen's granola bar was seriously tasty and I felt very sorry for First 26.2 by Emma having to wait so long to have her photo taken (they were done in height order ).

Even if I go no further, it's made me determined to join a running club.  It was so much fun just spending time with fellow runners and talking about running to someone without their eyes glazing over!

To anyone who didn't make it through, I genuinely felt before I went that it was such a huge achievement to make it that far and I think we all learnt so much that we should all be proud to have been picked

DS- Condolences, and thoughts with you and your family tomorrow. 

Speech submitted as working in the morning and doing exams in the afternoon... I can't get my photo to upload- any tips??

Caroline- glad it was a good weekend on the Peaks- did you get near Lathkill Dale?? 

Sarah- hope you're right!

Steve- agree completley

Clive - you need to wait to have it approved. It could probably do with having some confirmation message saying that the upload was successful, please wait for approval but iirc it just closes the upload window and leaves you wondering if it worked.

If it doesn't get sorted tomorrow you can always drop them an email.

I'm through too ... See! There's something to be said for my lucky pink socks! (Maybe only that the photographer was so dazzled by the colour that he missed my (unintentional) gurning in the staged photographs so I didn't get eliminated immediately.)

Sorry for everyone who didn't get the news they were hoping for. Maybe we should all try and catch up at TR24? That would be so much fun!! Have a bootcampers party!

RunnyRunRun I've decided, after much soul-searching, that I'm willing to brave the pink... I want socks like yours.

03/12/2012 at 23:34

Ive almost just spent the last hour trying to get a photo on here Clive but I think my last attempt has just been accepted after croping several photos and changing the quality of the pic! Not my best photo mind you, but fingers crossed it will be up by tomorrow. How did everyone else get such good photos up?

03/12/2012 at 23:37

Hi Sarah, wait till you see my photo if I have managed to load it correctly that is!?

03/12/2012 at 23:42

Hi Sarah, I fell just short of chucking my laptop in the bin and marching down to Photoshop HQ with a strongly-worded letter of complaint when trying to upload mine - I gave up in end but when I came back a couple of days later, it had uploaded fine... Patience, it appears, is a virtue!

04/12/2012 at 00:01

Good luck with the profile pics! I ended up downloading a photo resizing programme. I'm sure there must be an easier way but I'm not sure what it is ... it takes a couple of days to appear - think RW Towers have to confirm we haven't uploaded anything too risque in the hope of blagging a few more votes!

04/12/2012 at 00:09

Too true - some people will do anything stand out. Apparently there are these socks you can get...

I'm not the only one up late then? Anything to do with stringing 150 words together? 


04/12/2012 at 00:11

Hi Clive, we had many young kids with us so we only managed a little stroll to Monsal Head and dale / aqueduct! Really stunning though!

Good luck with the 150 words everyone! xox

04/12/2012 at 00:13

It's amazing. I dash off emails and blog posts like there's no tomorrow ... but ask me to write 150 words asking people to like me enough to vote for me and the words dry up!!

I suppose I'm not allowed to just copy and paste "Pick me! I like running!" 30 times? It would solve the writing problem ... but might not be very interesting ...

04/12/2012 at 00:24

I'm with you RRR

04/12/2012 at 00:59
Hee hee CaroT!! Was going to send you a message but your profile wouldn't allow it! Was fab to meet you on Friday and have a coffee afterwards! Had such a great day ... To be able to run and talk about running all day such a treat!
04/12/2012 at 06:47
Morning all. That was the worst night's sleep I've had in ages.150 words kept going over and over in my head! And needing to get a photo sorted. I even tried counting sheep but guess what? ...........
