Andrew - not me guvnor 

Xyloid - I would be very surprised if they gave out that info. And yes, it is decided on more than just the vote. As you say it would be a bit unfair otherwise.

I hope you're all winners tomorrow.  But for those who aren't please remember there is the Forum Six option.  Six people will be chosen to be paired up with a mentor and guided to their Spring Marathon.  This is the third year this has run and it has a higher success rate than the Asics (sorry - just saying!). 

The closing date is 17th December and to be in it you simply put a pitch on the thread on this page.... I'll link it below.  Be accurate about your past training, current pbs and have a realistic goal.   I was a mentee two years ago and it was a brilliant experience that finally got me under 3:30 after 7 or 8 attempts.

Right guys going to try and come away for the evening! Not long until our fate is determined and for my depression to spiral out of control thanks to our resident counsellor... Will look forward to congratulating the winners tomorrow

Hehehe, I love it, despite my terribly long day today and me being on call tomorrow, reading the last three pages of this thread has brought a smile to my face and laughter around the room....far more entertaining than the comedy awards my OH has on in the background!

Andrew at this rate it may be possible to section you within 72 hrs!

Clive....it has been a very long day...I was secretly happy when my last two patients DNA! Managed to get a 1000m swim in afterwards though, so I feel all refreshed again....ready for my on call tomorrow. I'm already a bag of nerves when I'm on call, it's going to amplified about ten times tomorrow with it being results day!

Very funny tonight guys. It seems now the voting is over lots of people have stopped posting!!! Now why would that be???

Hi Tigger I hope you are well, yes it has been something else watching this forum in between all those things that get in the way like work, family, sleep etc oh and of course running did get a nice 5.5 miles in plus a mile with the dog, which not as cold as DS2 minus 6 that is hardcore how many layers?

Not long now getting ready for Friday's Christmas Works do it could be either mineral water or vodka? Joke it will be mineral water either way!

Hi DS2 - is that because thay have gone home?

12/12/2012 at 22:46

DS2....Possibly sleep deprivation? Or their OH's have hid their computers and phones!

Mines been threatening that all week shady...I just keep reminding him that I let him watch loads of rubbish on TV whilst I'm distracted!
12/12/2012 at 22:52

YAY I'm home. Hello to anyone who's still out there... or to anyone who's not all together not quite there anymore?? 

My "highlight" of this dark & chilly evening was a passerby's comment to me whilst out on a run & I was wearing my new BLUE illuminating shoe laces... he said to me "Do those turn RED if you run any faster...?"

12/12/2012 at 22:52
Good luck everyone tomorrow,x

Ha ha DS2 - well Sarah is still going but she's on limitless energy. No idea how you do it doc.

Thanks for the link Minni - once this is decided be prepared for some more takers, though it'll be hard to beat Tenjiso's pitch!

Mrs Malcs dozing off next to me so sneaking this post in.

Do the rest of us meet some grizzly end then Tony - turn blue and explode or get attacked by the 'bad nut' squirrels?

CarroT - love the lace story!

Evening folks!

Been to a pantomime ... well half of one. The 3 year old wasn't terribly impressed when the evil fairy came on and started howling. Not good.

So ... any fingernails left anyone?

Good luck Guys and Gals
