When are you happiest? Satisfied? Relaxed?

All three when I'm horse riding - it's just amazing!

I think I'd be disappointed if Pixie was in the final.  The reason for this is that she is already an incredible dancer - she has had dance training - so I think she has a very unfair advantage over everyone else.

Don't get me wrong, she's amazing to watch, but she's just too good and comes across as really insincere.

My final four would be Frankie, Simon, Caroline and Mark - with Frankie to win.

I concur - it was a fab night and it seemed like all the dancers upped their games, except maybe Sunetra, which was a shame really.  I thought that even Judy was much improved.

Nessie - I agree, I'll definitely be watching Simon's Argentine Tango again - it was incredible.  Probably the best dance of the night for me. 

Personally I never watch the singers, I'm just interested in the dancing, so fast forward those bits.

So, who does everyone think will win?  For me, I'd like Frankie to win, or Simon.

Yes he did Andyp - I was shocked!!!!!

I'm a bit late to this thread, but would like to say how much more enjoyable Strictly is since they axed Bruce!  I also love Claudi and think she works really well with Tess.

Think Judy should have been in the dance off last night - Alison is a way better dancer than her and should have gone through to Blackpool.  I don't dislike Judy, but she doesn't have a single rhythmical bone in her body!

Try adding some brisk walking up hills, that will help massively and I'll bet it gets your heart rate up.

Can you not run with the dog?

Dog Biting

The thing about bulls and the colour red is a load of tosh - they are colour blind. Dogs also only see in certain colours. 

For dogs, I would imagine they only chase runners as they are 'running' - it's an instinct thing - prey generally runs away......

As for bulls some breeds are more inclined to be aggressive and chase, whilst others aren't.

Earphones in races

Gregry Collins - how easy do you think it will be for a marshall to 'tap on the shoulder' a person running past them wearing earphones in amongst a couple of hundred (or more) other runners?  Not really practical or safe is it??

Nice!!!  Don't forget your sun screen.

Sideburn - I will try and convince the OH to do the marathon - then we can incorporate it into a summer holiday with our boards and wetsuits - the clincher might be along the lines of 'but being in the sea will help your post marathon recovery.....'

Ooooh, you live near Woolacombe beach?!?!?!  Soooo jealous, I love it there!  Have very fond memories of summer holidays learning to body board there.

 Nice.  And it's always pretty quiet out and about on Christmas morning too which is even better.

By the way, I didn't post this thread twice, my forums page went a bit bonkers.
