@meldy - have you posted on the Asics forum threads (for the ones that are trying to get the asics place) to maybe encourage/bribe/ take them over?

I think Minni is on the recruitment drive over there !!   I think a lot of them are waiting for the results before posting over here

Yep I think once the winners are announced tomorrow the 'real' winners will then be pitching on here!   There's some really good people about this year so it should be good.

HERE IS YOUR CHANCE !!!!

Have you been shunned by Asics?

Stuck in a training rut?

Got a marathon place and can only run round the block??

Busy busy busy and no time to train??

I have six lovely mentors all lined up and chomping at their Mizunos to get involved

All you have to do is to tell us why you should be given the prize of the millenium

YOUR PITCH

Should not threaten to harm small animals
Should not send people to sleep or need a screen break

It will contain your hopes for a marathon time
It will contain your marathon entry confirmed
It will contain a brief running history of recent times and pb's

We would love to hear all about YOU, strengths, weaknesses and limitations

---------------------------------------

This thread will close on Monday 17th December and then Kittenkat and her esteemed Adjudicator(s) will cogitate the pitches and we will then announce the LUCKY SIX on Christmas Eve


Asics 6??  As they said on Channel 4 ... thanks for the warm up

well it looks like the results are out  ... prepare for an influx !!

Comiserations for those who did not get into the Asics 6, but this really is the best prize 

13/12/2012 at 12:33

@Meldy - where do you see that?

13/12/2012 at 12:44

just follow the Asics link from the RW front page Emmy.

It looks like two "first timer's" got through and nobody from the "busy lifestyle" category.  I think it confirms my suspicion that the results are pretty much decided before the votes.

Emmy - I saw it on Twitter

13/12/2012 at 13:08

Thanks Tenjiso. I found it a little strange as well that melanie moved from first timers to busy lifestyle.

For those that are interested. Here are the Asics final 5

They run the competition so they make up the rules as they go along.

VERY sad that the over  50s are not represented again. Asics are ageist IMHO........ there are loads of over 50s on RW, yes I know us chaps are bald and dont take good pics but we have a bit of cash to buy trainers I think its a real shame that the five, whom I wish well are all fairly young whipper snappers who are going to blow their times out of the water anyway........

mcs.baldness can be very sexy................. 

and we would not ever stop Minni from spamming the forums

i hope we get a few of the unsuccessfuls form the asics come over.....a number of them have proived to be interesting and i think would make a big contribution to our number......if we had catergories we could have an asics reject catergory.........

its interesting to see that some of those that got through did not have many posts or views on their threads..........surely views on threads is what keep RW online a success..as advertisers would need to know lots of people are lurking here even if they don't post
