Feel very lucky to be picked to be in with a chance of joining the Asics 26.2 target team for the Paris marathon 2014. I know everyone will be asking for votes so just wanted to give a brief reason why I'd love you to pick me, will try not to waffle..

Only been running 3yrs in April and have found the running community to be like a second family. My club Royton Road Runners (best club in the world) have given me so much support n encouragement I'd like a chance to give something back. 

Marathons are a special journey whatever your ability & I'd love to share that with everyone and hopefully help people along the way not because I think I’m the best runner but because when I put those trainers on I feel exactly the same as most of  you - I want to know how to run better!

Even if you didn’t make it through to this stage would love everyone to follow the winner who ever that is & support them. Please give this running nutter a chance to win & share with you the madness that is  RUNNING A  MARATHON!!

Kirsty - well done on getting through. What do you think your biggest challenge will be in the Asics competition?

04/12/2013 at 09:54

Hi Emma. I have 4 lovely children at home so fitting everything in is my biggest challenge but I think for me this marathon will be about doing everything the right way. Looks like you have plenty of running experience, been running long?

Lol Kirsty I loved your comment on the other thread about keeping him indoors happy. This is the hardest part of marathon training!! The forums are a great way of getting all the marathon chat in without boring your OH to death!!!  The amount if times I pretend to be texting my mother .... like now!! 

04/12/2013 at 20:31

Haha Minni. I always believed men were easier to keep happy than you ladies. 

04/12/2013 at 20:35

No way! I've become a master of secret running! My husband has no idea how many miles a week I run! In the mornings I'm up, run done, back hope by 6:30 to take his coffee in bed. He's none the wiser!! 

04/12/2013 at 20:43

One thing I will agree on Minni is my wife is better at getting out of bed in the morning!

kirsty - how old are your kids? 

04/12/2013 at 21:42

I'm going to decide who to vote for by asking one question and the person with the best answer gets it.

What's you favourite Star Wars character ??

05/12/2013 at 13:09

And the answer is?

Its EmmY but i'll let it go... I know that feeling of juggling stuff  I've been running for ages but only really stepped up to Marathons last year. I love the distance and the number of friends that 'i've made.

Flat Footed - can we answer if she doesnt?

Hello! In the christmas spirit thoughtd I'd join the party!

So being rather random which appartly I am! What christmas jumper have you got if any? I think you can tell a lot of someones personality from random questions! Do you have any pets? Im very excited I have a new pet hamster which is sooo cute?

Last question I promise....

Iv been following the voting on your group especially, how or where are all your votes coming from?

Hi Kirsty,

 

Well done on getting this far... this is when you will feel like you need to be online all the time!

For fear of repeating (Emmy, and Flat footed )-You said you have 4 kids- how old are they, and how do you anticipate fitting in the training (esp over the winter)? Is your other half very supportive and prepared to take on childcare, or are you planning some graveyard shift sessions Ie start of the day/end of the day? (I speak from experience of the latter, and I've only got 2 kids)

If you don't get through, are you going to run a marathon next year? If so, which one and why....

kirsty? Kirsty? Kirsty? Kirrrrrrrrsty? Are you there?

05/12/2013 at 20:30

Hi....i was in the same position as you this time last year. I didnt get through to the final 5 but I was instead mentored by Minni to run London marathon. The amount of support and advice I got from her and everyone else on here was amazing. I've made some good friends through it. Think the only downsides of being on here was the little time I got to spend with my other half....if I wasn't running I was at work or on here and he found it quite tough.

05/12/2013 at 20:53
