Good luck Shady, its been lovely to get to know you and to hear all about your adventures. Whether you get through or not, please keep them coming. I will be keeping an eye out for this book when were in our 60 (or maybe 80s if this government stays in) when you get to complete it after retirement . If you do win the lottery and finish it earlier, please let me know

Hey Carol,

All the very best to you too.....not a problem regarding the was a pleasure reading your blog and following your efforts....I tried to visit everyone's page, but I tried to keep my comments to a minimum in case people thought I was phishing for votes....maybe that was a tactical error......who knows!

I hope it isn't a nervous wait until the winner is announced......very good luck!

Malcs........and there wa sme, ater our bonding train ride back from Birmingham togehter, thinking you hated me! I often sat myself in a darkened room, rocked in the corner while crying myself into a stupour.......

........being serious for once, I totally understand why you didn't post. I had exactly the same thoughts.....even for other people in other categories........I thought if I was wishing people too much 'good luck' then they would see it as too creepy, or all I was after was their all I really asked were questions about them.....maybe that was my own error, like I've said above to Carol, but be rest assured I was checking out yours and everyone else's page with a lot of's strange as I've not actually viewed this as a competition at all......even though at the end of the day it is.

Good luck to you as well mate...........if you win, I'll be the first to shake your hand (well, I might struggle getting to Orpington before your wife congratulates you!).....let the nervoud wait continue! Good luck!

Thanks very much. It's been lovely to get to know you too....and know that if I ever eat a large Sunday Roast, I should never feel guilty as I'll know someone who has eaten a bigger one! (hehehe). Good luck for the final 5, although I'm sure you agree there's at least 20 runners out there who deserve it!

If I ever complete this book, I'll be happy to send you a signed copy (will I still be able to sign my own autograph or remember the stories when I'm 80 yrs old?). There's still plenty of stories where these ones came from and I'll be happy to keep them coming in one form or another!

Ady - there's a strange sound on the forums .... (tumbleweed) ...

12/12/2012 at 15:36

Hahahaha...I think everyone has just collapsed out of sleep deprivation and fatigue from all the hard work they've put in over the past week......I'm about to do the same in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1..........thud...........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hi shady, are you asleep?  I just wanted to say that I've enjoyed reading your thread, but like you said above, not posted much on others threads..felt bit awkward. Anyway, all the best with whatever your next challenge turns out to be!

12/12/2012 at 20:34

Thanks Sarah........ if you set me a deadline to write each chapter and I miss it, you're more than welcome to follow me on my runs and lob cabbages or turnips in my direction. After laughing hard at Malcs traumatic carrot assault, I think this vegetable tactic certainly has the ability to work!

Hey Jen...wide awake at the moment....thanks for your comment....and glad I wasnt the only one feeling a little awkward. Likewise to you

Ady, just wanted to be the first to say a huge well done on making the final 5. Your amusing stories have been brilliant and I know that your Paris thread will be joy to to follow.

All the very best with your training. I will be with you every step of the way!

13/12/2012 at 12:31

Congratulations on getting through to the final 5, i will be following your progress over the next 4 months

13/12/2012 at 13:14

Thank you all for your wishes...........Malcs.....thank you so was a pleasure meeting you and campaigning alongside you....I echo the words of everyone else who have said you've kept the Asics thread lit main aim over the next 4 months will not only be to reach my target time of 3hrs 30mins, but also to not let down anyone down from RW, or those not fortunate enough to make it all the way to Paris.

This is my big shot at reaching a lifelong goal and I promise not to let a single person down.

13/12/2012 at 13:15

Sarah.....thanks so much. It's been a pleasure conversing with you and everyone else over the past week or so. I really hope it will continue and I really hope I wont let you down with my perfomance. I hope we are all able to stay in touch.

13/12/2012 at 13:26

Ady - I know you'll do it!

I'll be following your schedule to the letter but taking out the hard bits and totally ignoring your nutritional advice.

Best of luck and have fun!

13/12/2012 at 13:32

Well done Ady on getting through - enjoy!

Well done Ady! We'll be working together to get you off that plateau. I'll email you direct to set up a time to chat about your programme. 72 hours of freedom before the hard work begins!

13/12/2012 at 15:17


Well done! Delighted you have made the final 5- you deserve it. Was a pleasure meeting you at BC, and have enjoyed the stories here over the last week. Will be monitoring your progress, and thinking about you on those cold dark winter mornings as I snuggle under the duvet!!

Congratulations Ady! What an experience, eh?!

See you Sunday mate, let the games begin!
