Rejected mag arrived today. That's four in a row now I think, or is it five? Will get round the checking at some point.
The ballot is exactly that - a process of sheer chance. We are told the odds are around 1:5. So we should all be expecting NOT to get in and be pleasantly surprised if we do. Surely?
I have never really thought of myself as a 'Mr Spock', but I can't understand all the emotion. Nobody has a right to get in. You just have a chance. End of story. The computer that randomly selects entrants cares not a jot for how many miles you've logged, or how few. Just down to luck. And I can live with that, and the associated disappointment.
I might run Edinburgh instead, or somewhere else. And I will apply again to LM next year.
I shall log on again in a year's time for more of this madness.
