Hi all, I just posted this on Clive's forum but thought it should be shared with everyone!

Morning Clive,

Here is an excerpt from an email I received from an old friend this morning. Thought you and Sarah osborne 4 might enjoy reading. There is some recognition for the excellent work your profession does:

My main problem is I enjoyed the experiences I have had the good fortune to experience, been amazed at the treatments endured and the nursing staff that I have been blessed with that still make my eyes water with undying admiration (they were and are brilliant).

I sailed through my stays in hospital, but watched with a sense of awe at the dedication some of the poorer patients received from these multi national nurses and doctors, evidenced by their ceaseless care and attention.

Sorry about that but somebody needs to tell of the good work that is carried out daily by these men and women that don't seem to get much publicity, only the downsides are news worthy aren't they.

Hey guys how we all doing!? Your right Steve that would be an iteresting poll! I bet Malcs has already had a quick look at whats going off?! Its ok were all addicted too!!

[today I will only be communicating through the medium of smilies! Time to run now - bonza!]

07/12/2012 at 12:24

Ha ha I shall be going running shortly! Its a beautiful day for it! Nice, crisp & the sun is shining!

Afternoon all, The Boot Camp video is up on the Runnersworld TV section. Won't load on my machine at work at the moment. Probably a warning that I should be with customers or something.

for those who are not one of the lucky 5 next week....


Have you been shunned by Asics?

Stuck in a training rut?

Got a marathon place and can only run round the block??

Busy busy busy and no time to train??

I have six lovely mentors all lined up and chomping at their Mizunos to get involved

All you have to do is to tell us why you should be given the prize of the millenium


Should not threaten to harm small animals
Should not send people to sleep or need a screen break

It will contain your hopes for a marathon time
It will contain your marathon entry confirmed
It will contain a brief running history of recent times and pb's

We would love to hear all about YOU, strengths, weaknesses and limitations


This thread will close on Monday 17th December and then Kittenkat and her esteemed Adjudicator(s) will cogitate the pitches and we will then announce the LUCKY SIX on Christmas Eve

Asics 6??  As they said on Channel 4 ... thanks for the warm up

I've just watched the video, they're not lying when they say the camera adds 10 pounds. I seriously need to lay off the cakes

anyone get friendly with Tamsin on the bootcamp.any idea why she has stopped posting and not set up a she unwell.or do you think the forum nature of the competion has scared her off..........its hard for us to vote for someone if we can't get to see their posting style......

you don't need to post every minute and post loads of rubbish.......just enough so we can get an idea of what to expect if you win

07/12/2012 at 14:07

Not sure seren nos - I couldn't see why she stopped either. let's hope it's nothing major and she'll be on over the weekend.

Just had a nice 6.77 in 52;20 with 4 at MP at lunchtime. It's so nice to run a gently undulating course instead of the stupidly hilly stuff I do at home. Actually got in a rythm and felt steady all the way round instead of gasping for air one minute and bombing downhill the next. I may do more from work!

Reg.....everytime i look at your profile looks like that you are sitting on a toilet

Just breaking radio silence to say that the Forum Six sounds like a great opportunity. Obviously those of us lucky enough to still be in contention still have our hopes pinned on hearing good news next week. However, from what I've read the Forum Six is fantastic and a great alternative option for anyone who's out of the process.

Also - nice to see some of you didn't babble like fools in the interviews  They burned the tape with mine on!

Whew! Just managed to sit down for first time today...operating till 11.30 last night, and then since 8 this morning is not good for keeping up on the forum- It's taken me ages to catch up on the postings- youve all been very busy!

Its freezing here, but think it will be a stupid o clock run if I'm to get out today, need to get tights on again

Caroline- Spice Girls is good! I was dressed as Ginger Spice on my stag night many years ago, and still hvae outfit somewhere. Union Jack mini dress and fishnets fine to run in, but knee high silver platform boots I think may be a struggle

Video looks great- thankfully like Malcs my video has been binned!!

I like the idea of TR24- would anyone else be thinking of getting a team together I could maybe join? Or other races to do- Percy Pud 10k in Sheffield 1st weekend December each year- all finishers get a Xmas Pudding!

Or for any budding triathletes, one of the Great Swims (Windermere, Salford, London etc)- 1 mile open water??
