Everyone looks great and really motivated!

Not many folks for whom I could use their training or pacing though as so many fast runners this year!

Good luck everyone!

Hi RRR and DS2 can you belive we are in the same category!, sorry sills if I met you (but can not quite remember?) at Bootcamp but nice to meet you now, I could not  be with nicer runners .

Good luck and spk soon, only just got in from taking the kids swimming and now catching up with everything

Hey Tony - was wondering where you were. I'm a bit gutted to be in this company, but the upside is I will absolutely be delighted for whoever gets the nod!!

I really enjoyed Friday evening, drinking coffee, sharing stories, discussing running partners of the canine variety, Sarah's socks etc, etc....

Monday night I dreamed about sheep wearing pink flourescent socks, tonight it'll probably be labradors in odd flourescent socks running along the coastal path dragging you along with him...RRR - you have a lot to answer for!

Good luck one and all.

Tony's onthebeach - Evening! Sorry I didn't realise it was you! Argh! Not ANOTHER person I should have tripped up at bootcamp ... I was obviously REALLY letting things slide on Friday

EmmaC - Evening Emma! You were great last year!! Any tips for us nervous, frantically-campaigning types?

Just realised I'm up against 2 Doctors, what chance have I got???? It's been great to see everything and everyone come alive over this. Again good luck to everyone!

To RRR I never got the chance to say thank you for helping me through the time trial, good luck with the voting!!!

Paulsamcymru - you're welcome! You did amazingly well - couldn't believe you had done the longer distances but never a 5k before! What an introduction to the distance!

Sure was

Hi, has everyone set up their threads now? just about to do mine.

Clive I love the photo that you managed to get on here...mines such a close up (but I did want to hide the football shirt just incase it lost me any votes). I do think out of all the surgical jobs upper GI and vascular are my favourites.

Steve here here (and i forgot to say, I love bacon too)

Jenf, if youve posted that recipe im sure your a cert to go through!

Paul I really wouldnt worry!

Paul- wouldn't worry about it as the medical profession is not particularly well perceived by the public these days

Sarah- what team was the football shirt? Or is that too risky to say?? Liked vascular too, but didnt like the clinics- too many smelly feet (and not a lumo pink sock in sight anywhere!!)

JenF- promised to try recipe with kids this weekend... then will sneak out for a run while my wife cleans up the mess

05/12/2012 at 22:17
There are quite a few threads up there now Sarah. Looks like everyone is being very civil. Calm before the storm? Let's hope not!

So, two medics on a forum populated by injury paranoid runners....

glad my granola bar recipe has been well received! it's perfect running fuel, and v little mess Clive!

I don't know about everyone else but i'm exhausted by the stress of the last few days ! ....or maybe it was that speed session I did earlier
05/12/2012 at 22:25
Jen - you've blown it by going public. Dragon's Den won't touch you now
05/12/2012 at 22:27
I feel exactly the same jenf!!

Good work all with your profiles and forum threads, I've enjoyed reading about all your stories and motivations for your goals.

Good luck everyone, final five or not its been a great experience so far.

lol malcs. .still have my protein recovery bar recipe under wraps though!!!
05/12/2012 at 22:43

Clive i dont know if I dare say just incase it looses me a few votes (but here we go, im a Blade!)

Haha Malcs maybe I should have kept quiet, although my advice is that physios are far more knowledgable than us on sport injuries, although if anyones got any questions I dont mind trying to help (Ive probably done it now)

Jen I think im going to have a go at making them when im next at my parents, just incase I make a mess!

I managed to do my thread but I really think I went on to much. I wrote so much it wouldnt all go up as one.....hope it doesnt put anyone of voting for me now they know my life history!

I just knew you had some cunning master plan in the works! Under that smiling exterior lies a shrewd business mastermind. Remember me when you make your millions.
05/12/2012 at 22:46
Sarah, our Internet just went down here - was that because of your mammoth post?
05/12/2012 at 22:50
Aaarrrhh have just got back from a late work thing and now haven't got time to do my thread. Feel like I'm left behind the rest. I'll have to make it special now.

I can feel the anticipation from here.
05/12/2012 at 22:57

Come on Reginald ...we're all waiting for something amazing!

Malcs, it could well be!
