Thanks Sarah - I'm knackered then

Back from working late & and a quiet-ish night out with good friends. I love my friends but its been soooooo difficult trying to explain this competition to them.... they glaze over with running talk as it is, and then adding the blogging thing into it.... I've mostly been saying, yup, I've been very busy recently
It's STILL taken me an age to catch up with you die hards on on this blog tonight..... Feeling pretty relieved that it's all over, don't actually feel as disappointed as I thought I would. To add insult to injury, after hearing I didn't make the final cut at 12pm I had to do an enema on a constipated cat before lunch ! What a treat!
I haven't thought about the Forum 6 much before tonight... I'm not sure I can survive any more sleep deprivation? Anyone else pitching? Not quite sure what to do... must go search Minni's post? Will they be nice & accepting to us who want to enter that haven't made the final cut??? xox

Not as shiny but they do work!
CaroT - I'm going to have a go, I think Sarah and Paul are thinking about it. Will they be accepting? Absolutely so if you fancy it then go for it.
Thanks for the enema story...thanks alot....
Good morning all.
Good to see your all in good form still and the posting is a rapid as ever! I took a bit of time out yesterday for some r and r, was able to have a sneaky peak on the forum with my mobile, but its not the easiest! I had an afternoons xmas shopping and then a lovely meal and drinkies! And a good nights sleep!
Good luck to those pitching for the Forum 6!
A.W. don't blame you having some time out. i imagine you are going to be really busy on here for the next few months.
For the chosen 5, make sure you report back here on Sunday evening so we can hear all about your day. I think there may be a little envy from the rest of us but certainly no jealousy! Enjoy the day.
I've made a decsion not to pitch for the Forum 6. I gave it a lot of thought but have decided I'd sooner back the others that I have met. Good luck guys.
Feeling amazingly enthusiastic this morning. I really thought I would be gutted but I'm really looking forward to following the 'winners' all the way to Paris. Others who lost out seem to be the same. I think everyone is really pleased for those picked.
I will stick to the advice I'm getting on the Sub 3:15 thread. They've done me fine so far so I can't see any point in changing it!
Morning all. I definitely chose the wrong day yesterday for constant meetings and then an Xmas party all night long. I was quite impressed by the number of diet cokes I drank. As Mrs. Shady_Ady would say "You've changed!".
Normal service should be resumed today though.
Malcs.....I now expect a whole new level of Emoticons and Smilies flashing through this thread.
A.W. - good for you, quite right you should be celebrating.
DS2 - great to hear you in such good spirits. Very good of you thinking of the rest of us re the forum 6 too, I'm sure you would have been a great candidate.
Jen - there are plenty of other threads where you can get advice. I've been on the Paris Marathon thread and had some great help there too (it's not really a thread about Paris per se). There are people on there with a wide range of target times:
Ady - so do I but Minni isn't letting me into the secret yet! Grrr
Congratulations to the five winners! Will be avidly following your feedback as your training progresses. Keep us all posted.
