Sarah, congratulations!!! Now the hard work begins after the birthday and Xmas excesses
Are you going to set up a rival Asics thread? We have to stalk or harass you somehow

Congrats to those chosen and sorry to those that weren't. Basically my role is to choose the judges and we send them all the pitches numbered, but without forum names. Yes of course they could just look at the thread and see who is who if they chose to.

But they don't generally, and I'm very confident yet again that this is a very objective decision and I know that it was... yet again; a very hard one.

Please don't disappear if it wasn't you, just follow the thread closest to your goals or personality, and be grateful that you don't just win random stuff. The last thing I won was a locally knitted' Tom and Gerry', and they were so hideous that they freaked my kids out.

No, it was years ago, I gave them to my German Shepherd

Oh...wow!!! Stunned!!!! Woohoooo!!! This is amazing news and much needed after a naff week (shan't bore you with the details now!) At the risk of sounding completely stupid, is there more info on this other than on this thread. Some of you guys seemed to know you were chosen before the list was published here...wow,...wow...and wow again!!!!!!!

Rachel - your thread has been set up and awaits you with a mentor  

22/12/2012 at 18:51

Well done everyone and to Meldy and KK for once again bringing all this together. 

22/12/2012 at 18:53

Aww shunned again.  No mento's for me 

Congratulations everyone!  I'll check out whether anyone has similar aims to me and stalk appropriately.

Don't lurk... be a poster! I always enjoy reading your posts... it'd be a shame that a thread didnt get to see that!

Aiii.... I shall stand in the appropriate line

Aww thanks Emmy, and congratulations!  I'll still be around 

 

22/12/2012 at 20:51

Woohoo - congratulations to all. Great mentors too. I'll look forward to lurking but won't join in cos I'm not doing a marathon the Spring. And you are all too fast for me anyway.

Good luck.

Took my eye off this for a moment and when I come back its passed me by. Gutted for me  but happy for those that were selected .

I stil need to work out how to sort out my training plan as I am convinced  I can do a PB in Paris.

Will hang around and see what is going on. Maybe I will pick up a few tips.

There is always next year ......

Congratulations to all the winners.

Particular mention to Emmy, who has been so welcoming to us forum newbies.

And a big one to Sarah. Well done doc - you really deserve this after having the rug pulled out from under you in the 26.2 comp. You've got an amazing mentor in Minni. She's given me so much help and encouragement in the past two weeks that I feel she's already been a mentor to me.

I could dwell on the disappointment of two rejections in a week but I've decided that I can't be any more unlucky and have splashed out on a lottery ticket instead

Best of luck to you all!

Also massive thanks to Meldy and everyone else involved - really appreciate you all taking the time to set all this up.

I'm really chuffed, thanks for choosing me. I was tied up with visitors all day yesterday so missed all the fun. I can't wait to start now. I'm off out in a minute for a run but I may need to weigh myself down, it's seriously windy out there

There are so many mentor's available on these forums who are only too happy to help people like us.  I shall continue "crowdsourcing" ideas and advice to continue making progress.

Have a great Christmas everyone.  Our paths will doubtless cross in 2013

Well done all.

Those of you that weren't chosen - don't be shy. Get on the thread of your nearest target time, introduce yourself, share your training and give them stick - especially when they have decided to stay in bed and you have completed a 20m LSR in the rain.

I've been rejected twice. Well done to those that were chosen and I'll be following threads closely!
