Completely agree with Emma- we were advised to start threads and those who didn't were noted for not showing enthusiasm on the forums.
I count myself a member of the forums as for the past 3 years I've consistenly visited and posted, with a period in 2010 when I found one thread in particular (the VLM sub 4:30) really helped my training. After the marathon, other priorities in life took over but them i came back.
I think the way people use the forums differs and of course we want to be part of it if we get through to the final 5, but people's styled will naturally differ and all we can hope for is being welcomed and accepted
Best of luck to everyone tomorrow- I have no nais left from the nerves and looking forward to seeing the results.
