Has it got anything to do with Max Factor?

Seren - Just teasing. I think you'd be a very well-deserving winner
09/11/2009 at 14:16

I'm just relieved this closes on Wednesday and short-listers told on Friday, and then winners 10 days after that?

It's the only way to run a competition like this, the hope and excitement overboils at the idea

Sounds like you are going to self-combust pete.

Take an ice bath to cool down!

In fact I hope I do win if Im to climb the most active members ladder
09/11/2009 at 15:39

If it is based on the active members ladder I do not stand a chance as there are over 1,500 ahead of me..........

.............still someone has to be at the bottom to make the others look so good!

yes...............i was in the hundreds till I reviewed some shoes and socks last week and suddenly I was at the top till lurker overtook me.............the guy who is 6th for the month has only ever posted 24 times but reviews kit.............

its a mixed formula but is heavy biased towards kit reviews.................the all time list is more accurate to postings

09/11/2009 at 15:56
Now the cats out the bag I wonder how many reviews will stream in over the next couple of days?

This seems a better offer than the one offered on Virgin website, as I read that you have to promise to raise £500 for charity and pay the entry fee! Still you get to run alongside branson, thats unlucky

Whatever do you MEAN Mr Snizzel?

well, I entered days ago, but its now occurred to me with all this talking of having to follow strict training plans that I might be in a spot of trouble. If I was to miraculously get a spot, I have a two week holiday to florida booked in Jan.

Admittedly I am going there specifically to run the disney goofy challenge, so I will be doing some running...

A note to everyone who is reading but to nervous to post, please post. It took me a while to pluck up courage to post my first few times, but there are some great threads out there.  Last year I joined the Just Get Round thread, and met some lovely people. Turns out one lived around the corner, so we met up and did some training runs!!

And its not just London Marathon threads either. The Bath Half thread has some very supportive runners too, they had to listen to all my blister woes last year.

I am really confused now, is it a compitition for a running event or to take on the eggheads. If it is on grammar and text talk i will struggle. I might not be too old to run, but i am for text stuff like m8, lol and omg.

2 dayz 2 go...or should I say two days to go.... not long now

09/11/2009 at 18:56
I want to do it so much need to run as fast as my husband!

Hmmm  I've just entered but wondering if I should have changed my username to Jedward to improve my chances?? (I noticed Colin from the North has already been taken......).

Noticed text speak seems to be an advantage but I'm thinking I could woo the judges with my impressive use of smilies   or after a run

09/11/2009 at 19:22
even if (or rather when I dont win) this comp Im going to train for for a late spring marathon South Downs was nice might do that one or the Neolithic....hmmm ponder
