Tenjiso - LOL looks like a sure fire winner to me!

+1, cracking pitch Ten

13/12/2012 at 15:52

Ten - haha love it guaranteed success!

Malcs - I'll make sure Ady has a shave on Sunday... we definitely need some more representation for the follically-challenged!

Brilliant pitch Ten!!! Covers all bases!!

For the 5 who got through make sure you enjoy every minute and don't worry about the rest of us. You deserve your places and we'll all be right behind you.

I wasn't going to Paris yesterday and I'm still not. I haven't lost anything.

To everyone else let's be thankful that we're healthy and able to contemplate running 26.2 miles. Stay on the forums, learn more and enjoy a chuckle!

May not have been shortlisted..... or made it into the final 5 but...... I have just won a hamper at my kids school! YIPEE

Absolutely - right behind the lot of you!

To keep you on your toes Myself and Reg are going to team up to form a kind of Statler and Waldorf -esque double-act providing informative critique on your performances as the training progresses.

Well done Tigger!

Brilliant Malcs. The new double act!

For the record I am not follically challenged or Bald, I am just too tall for my hair. If I was 5ft 6ins I would have a lovely full head of wavey hair.

13/12/2012 at 16:57 we don't live too far apart, you can take the informative critique one stage about joining me on my long runs on your bike with a bag of Morrisons (other supermarkets are also acceptable) £1 value carrots. If I'm not performing to your high expectations, launch one at me from close shouldnt take too many carrots in the eye before realising I need to step it up a notch!

What happens? The hairyest of the lot got through. I'll be changing tack completely next year.

I'm also worried that if people see this comment, they will think I'm a mature silverback gorilla masquerading as a runner.

I shaved my head once and looked like malteser, so for the sake of my marriage, I'm not sure if I'd dare do this again.

Seren answer your questions in order: 11:30-6.20 (11:30-8 on weekends), currently everything, a sunset orange (oooooh.....that's not healthy)

Tenjiso....I see you somehow managed to get a copy of my application form

Steve....I promise to come clean shaven on Sunday......I dont want the whole of the running world thinking i'm a George Michael lookalike!

Congratulations to the Famous Five, can I call them that? Is it Trademarked? Will be great to see how you all get on.

I shall be cheering myself up with a belated Birthday meal and a trip to see The Hobbit.

Ady - So that's a kind of carrot and stick but with the carrot acting as the stick? I like it, book me in!

Malteser .

Just wanted to pass on my congrats to the final 5, really pleased for you all, can't wait to follow the adventure you have ahead of you.

I'll be with you all the way!

End of double maths and drive home in freezing fog. Off on Xmas night out- now I know don't have to start training next week might have a couple of shandys

Will catch up tomorrow, well done again to the Steve, RRR, AW, Ady and Melanie

seems everyone has run out of energy Malcs

13/12/2012 at 20:48

LOL - I think if there was going to be a night that this thread was going to have a rest then it's tonight

13/12/2012 at 20:55

Yes mate. I was hoping the winners would be on here and we could have a laugh with them. I feel really cool about it tonight. It really helped what the sub 3:15 boys and girls had to say. I'm going to encourage sarah osbourne 4 to get on there as well. I know that Clive and you will stay in touch through that. Sarah will get loads of advice from the likes of Speedy, Minni. Jools, Freemers.

13/12/2012 at 21:05

Oh, I wasn't expecting anyone here tonight - hence my initial post

I think you surely have to either be out celebrating if you won or having a rest if you didn't. Hmm, not sure where that puts us two
