Hi all, I got in yesterday with my acceptance mag arriving which was a bit of a shock!

I spoke with someone I know at Marathon HQ, yes's and no's are going out in random batches with the last lot being sent on Wednesday so fingers crossed for everyone who not yet heard.

I'm in. I got the good news yesterday. It was a bit of a shock though to be honest as i had forgotten that i had entered.

I will have to get back out there running again, as i have only been running with my dog for the last few months.

I am sure i will be ok though, as i did the FLM last year, the really hot one.

Its a pity i cannot take my dog along for the run around london he would love it.

Good luck to all those who were successful

Oh my god, I am in.  After 4 failed attempts, I really thought 2010 would be my year.  Guess the training must start in earnest now.  Good luck to everyone and sorry to those who didn't make it.  If it helps I know how disappointed you will be feeling right now, but keep at it and you will eventually secure that place.  Still can't believe it.  Keep pinching myself to make sure its true.

2nd attempt....woohoo

Sorry to say this but I am so happy some people still haven't had a mag one way or the other.  Its so annoying, all this hanging on and I may not even get in. I have decided if by lunch time Monday I have nothing still I'll ring up Monday and ask whats happened.

Good luck to those who are in GNR tomorrow, I'm doing my first ever Liverpool 10K quite looking forward to it even with out my usual level of training behind me (illness, slight injury and little bit to do with rotten weather!)

i have received my acceptance mag, but im not sure whether to be happy or offended.  The FLM seems to have decided that i'm a female!! 

 They have clearly seen the pics of my pained expression around 22miles in my previous outing!

Don't expect to find out till monday or tuesday as I'm in Ireland. I'm getting nervous now that you lot have found out.

I have a deferred place and the "Congratulations" mag arrived on Friday, same as the people who won a place in the ballot.

Only worrying thing was the Acceptance Form, which has on it  "SEX :  U".  What does that mean?  Undecided?  Last time I looked I was a Male!  Definitely marked the right box on the form.
