Let the search for our six-strong team begin...
Awesome oppotunity, will have to have a bash, and i have met Liz before so wouldnt miss it for the world.
I never have any luck with stuff like this but hey the eternal optomist in me says you never know.
And how fantastic an opportunity would it be.
Finger, toes, ears, crossed!
all those newbies to posting........I would recommend joining in some of the threads........eg the marathon ones that are about your times etc or a race one that you are planning to do.......get used to the banter and make friends...........
one of the conditions of entry are that you are happy to post away on the forums so you have a few days to show them that your not shy.
If you read the last few pages of the thread you will see that they are friendly ( well the established ones are) and they will welcome you
I would just avoid going straight in and starting a thread with one of the old debates like ipods or dogs etc or it might get a bit heated.
Its exciting all this isn't it
Not for me thanks. I'm trying to be diplomatic but I feel like Coops (but without the balls)
But Farnie would be a good choice so let's get behind her!
I must be tired, that made me really laugh.
(Sorry Farnie ) Obviously I am rooting for you
I am going for it too this year. I really need all the help I can get to go sub 4:30. I know I haven't been on the forum much lately but I hope I will get some support
(If I am lucky enough to get to the shortlist of course )
If Farnie doesn't get chosen a fairy will die.
I'm with Rio
Been a forumite since i started running in 2002 but not been on much lately (I can't get on during the day (hopefully new phone with internet will fix that!!) )
I've done FLM twice by doing the pixie plan .... run longer at weekend! I've never trained so this would be an awesome opportunity!
Oh and I have no problems chatting online!!
what an opportunity
why pass on it, if it is posible around your personal committments
nothing better that having these people coach and advise you, running is not all just about putting one foot in front of the other for 26 miles
anyone who thinks it is, i strongly suggest they think again
plus, it may stand you in good stead to tackle a LONELY rural ( all weather ) undulating - hilly marathon
don't be nervous about it, or shy, or embarrased, these people regardless of how much they earn are trying to give a bit back to the sport
most of these people would have clocked 100 - 140 miles PW in thier day
i wish in my early days i'd had the tution and coaching that todays runners have, i USED to run around 80 -100 MPW icluding a FM or HM, though it's gone now
i had to find out everything for myself, ok, it's EASY for me to talk now, but it was'nt then i asssure you
I've just spent months coaching and advising my friend, talked her through her first FM , as i was'nt there, and ran around her second FM all 26 miles of it
she had no breath for anthying after 11 miles , 18 onwards was tough she said
but now she's conquered these 2 FM's IF she ran London , ( The party ) she cruise it as it is a party
go on, get your body in prestine condition , feel good REAL good
good luck to you all
Mick n Phil - well Mick anyway, phil just sites there
well said Rio
I should have done 5-5:15 last year but the emotion of running for macmillan following grandma's death meant every time i saw a cancer top i chocked then crashed and burned finishing in 5:49
I was so upset took weeks to get over it even though it was a pb by almost 1hr.
i'd love to train and run it properly and be in the position when the gfa is something i could do and not just a dream

I think Coops is rooting too. Or something similar.
Meanwhile, back on topic... I did say last year I'd enter this year, so guess I'm going to... I intend to carefully prepare my application though, so won't be imediate!
I wonder if the weekday only folks are going to panic when they come in on Monday and find this up? *EG*
This is an amazing opportunity, I'm giving it a go! Good luck everyone...I look forward to keeping up with the successful applicants .
