I've had the usual sniggers and smart arse comments, usually from teenagers, but never been on the end of organic missiles...

Most amusing was whilst doing an early morning long run through sheffield at 5.30am and coming across a couple of lads on their way home from clubbing- they started running with me, and due to the consumed drugs, managed to keep up with me for 3 miles whilst talking constantly. I did think that maybe there is something in doping after all

Sarah - I'm impressed! 

Clive - I'm not impressed!  ...hmm, what sort of drugs and can you get me some? 

Reg - you've not got any takers, sorry dood . (kerr ching - only 11 smilies to go)

Re. the week Clive - yes, it's hard being on adrenaline for that long. But I think anyone who is going to vote will have done so by now so chillax and dream of Paris in the spring  (make that 10 to go)

Malcs: I know, I must make my posts more interesting.

Well done Sarah, I'm very impressed.

I'm not normally one for confrontations. I normally shy away from them, and normally I can out run people if it does happen (that's what I think in my head!).

There was one time a few years ago when travelling when someone broke in to my room through the window. I just instinctively started screaming and ran at him. The fact I was naked made him bolt quicker than anyone I've ever seen, back out the window.

I'm actually glad he bolted. It would have been really awkward if he had just stayed there when I got to him. I wouldn't of had a clue what to do. Should I push him? Politely ask him to leave? Shake his hand? Embrace him like a long lost brother? 

Clive.....What did you talk about with them?  (Have you used this one yet Malcs?)

Ha ha you guys have actually made me lol I want somebody to throw a carrot at me just for comedy value! That's hilarious! During my lunchtime runs I run down a path having to negotiate loads of college kids and never get any abuse! I work at the YMCA accommodating young people and never get any abuse. I don't think it's scary because I look and run like a pansy so I'm told?! Lol

Reg -

Ady - I have just spat my rock cake all over the screen. I also have an image in my head that is outstaying it's welcome .  I'd go for politely ask him to leave - point him to the door, with your finger preferably .

Yes, the geek one is particularly appropriate for me - used on page 61 (I won't be going back to look up any others - took me freakin' ages!)

Down to 9 smilies now - thanks for the naked story Ady, helped me out there. Do you have any stories about disappointment? Wait a minute, was the wife there with you in the room? Damn, missed my chance!

(final day and it all turns nasty! You know I love you Shadester!)

Hey - who's messing with the smilies, no fair!

Yes she was......that's a low blow Sir, a very low blow

Obviously my 'protect the person I love most in the whole wide world' hormones had kicked in {NOTE: This is just a cheap play for sympathy!}

I'm even more ashamed of this than the 'man who run in front of car' gag. Ady, I will respectfully withdraw from the competition...

...but only once I've done my smilie challenge.

Anyway - I've already been suitably punished - the smilies have gone all festive!

.....does that mean you have an even greater selection of smilies to fit into your messages now?

11/12/2012 at 17:18

Certainly looks that way - can't remember what was there before but I think there are 5 new ones with Santa hats  

11/12/2012 at 17:37

Ding Ding - final lap everyone.... Does anyone know the actual time of the cut off?

I really wish you all well and hope you'll all stick around regardless - it's been a pleasure having you on board


11/12/2012 at 17:43

Sleepy Bear - voting cuts off midday tomorrow and they said they hope to let us know sometime Thursday...  My fingernails may not make it!

Will definitely stick around - you've all been so welcoming, this whole process has been an absolute pleasure...

11/12/2012 at 17:45

I think its at noon SB!?

Its been a great week, really good natured, and none of the negativity in posting we were worrying about before hand.

Its been great!

11/12/2012 at 18:29

I thought it was noon aswell. It was originally midnight but it was brought forward to give them more time to collect the votes up and decide on who to put through.

Clive im sleep deprived after this week!

Guys my car is my pride and joy, I love it to bits and if anyone tries to harm it (or any other of my loved ones) then I dont take it lightly . My OH wasnt too pleased though...he doesnt share my love for my car and was worried about having to back me up!

11/12/2012 at 19:22

V v cold run tonight, but now feeling v christmassy as I counted christmas trees along the route! time for a cup of tea n write my christmas cards I feel...!

Do you have my address Jen? If one of those granola bars happened to find it's way into an envelope, well...  

(I am only joking Jen - you are too nice to ignore such a request, maybe I can nick one from you when we're next in the area?)

Damn these smilies are like gremlins - they are multiplying! Who fed them after midnight?

I'll never reach my target at this rate. Come on, who's the wise guy? Who put RW up to this? Ady, it was you wasn't it?

a new batch is in oven now Malcs!

I wonder if your granola bars are like my turbo flapjacks - magic!

I quite often get comments when I am out running - or sometimes 'youts' in hoodies joining in for a few meters. The funniest is that on several occasions when I've been running with my lovely training partner and we have had vans pull up slowly behind us. No doubt to say something lewd. But when they draw alongside and look back at our haggard sweating faces they shoot off (once with comedy squealing tyres). Clearly I look much younger and attractive from the back! Ha ha! That'll learn 'em!

RRR - I think you were in the last group doing the time trial last week. It was quite tough and all the nervous energy of the day was really wearing! It makes such a difference when people shout their support at track I try to do the same and I also cheer in the last runners in a race (unless I'm the last!).
