Marmite rules! I've had four slices of toast with the good stuff this evening.

Joanne: go for a couch to 5k plan, get yourself fitted for trainers at a 'proper' running shop and off you go. A mile is over 100 kcals and 3500 is a lb. Running makes you thin if you don't then eat the exercise defict.

Hi, I can't believe it you made it in the paper so quickly, I emailed our local paper last night but they haven't been in touch yet. I was a little too busy today to call but it's on my agenda for tomorrow. The improvements in your times are amazing, keep up the amusing and entertaining posts!

RRR is clearly a media-powerhouse Sarah ;)

RRR - if you do get through, using your media connections, can you introduce me to Holly Willoughby?

06/12/2012 at 22:33

Goji - Awww! You ROCK! Thank you for such a nice message!!

Boduke - Nooooooo! (scream trails off into distance) Not a marmite lover! It's not too late to turn it all around you know ... you could give up the black stuff, go clean. There are meetings you could attend ...

Joanne - Boduke is right. Running is definitely a great way to lose weight if that's your ultimate aim. Use a calorie tracker and chart what you eat and burn and it's really motivating!

Sarah - I emailed the paper as soon as I got the email from Kate RW! The paper's deadline was early the next day so I needed to move fast! It popped through the door this evening! Felt like a proper celeb! Much better than Crimewatch!

Steve - I'll do a swap. If you give ME all that bacon you've been promising to give up if you win ... then I'll find you a celeb. Will Orville the Duck do? Or do I need to break out the big guns and see whether I can steer you in the direction of Peppa Pig?

06/12/2012 at 22:47

RRR - So... I give you all my bacon... and you give me Orville the Duck. This doesn't seem fair to me...

Can I settle for SuBo? Desperate times and all that.

what do you hope to gain from the forums and what do you think you can give to the forums

07/12/2012 at 09:34

Morning Seren Nos,

I've been a lurker on here for a few years now,  and have hung around waiting for other people to ask the awkward questions ... Why does Runners Trots happen only when there's no loo for 2 miles? Is it REALLY ok to apply vaseline in public before a race? And why hasn't anyone invented loo roll that disolves after use and sold it runners for long runs? ..

I reckon that to be able to use the forums you need confidence - being able to post and not worry too much that people are going to think it's a silly question ... That's one thing that making us have our own threads has solved ... the realisation that most of the RW girls and guys are pretty decent types and are quite willing to get stuck in and have a chat!

I'll bring the warts and all account of training with the experts to the forums. You want to know the detail of what Sam Murphy and Steve Smythe give me to do on my training? How I felt about that? I'll document it and discuss with anyone who cares to!

Oh my Goodness! I've made a guest appearance on 2 Itchy Feet!!!

07/12/2012 at 12:58
Good luck runny!

Thanks Simon!! If you don't mind giving me your precious, precious vote, I might be in with a chance!

I will be seeing you on billboards next...great campaigning.


Hope you have a fabulous birthday tomorrow

Vote on its way. Good to see a face I recognise from last year. I hope persistence pays off!
07/12/2012 at 17:09

All the best, a great story. I've voted for you and followed you on Twitter!

07/12/2012 at 18:24

Sarah - What - you haven't seen my billboard campaign with my face superimposed on Eva Herzagova's? I thought that would get all the votes! Maybe no-one was looking at my voting link ...

Time For A Nap - Thank you very much! Couldn't quite believe I made it back! KNEW I should have worn my lucky pink socks last time!

Andrew - Thank you! I've popped you a reply on Twitter too!! Will be great to have some running chat with you! I LOVE Twitter - am completely addicted!

You think she's out of my league...?

07/12/2012 at 18:48

Well ... aren't you a bit old for her ...?

Thought I'd take a leaf out of Sarah Osborne 4's book and post some of my favourite race pics!:
