Sensitive runners collapsing

Posted: 01/10/2012 at 19:15

was the collapse at robin hood yesterday as my family said someone had collapsed in front of the line and 2 runners carried him over. what running is all about a little family who look out for each other. I always ask if people are ok and encouraging words to walkers as i know i like it on tough run

when i got home from a half yesterday i noticed my lips were grey/blue colour. the week previuse i had a chesty cough. Iv got kilomarathon on 28th and wondered if others have ever noticed this before. i hate dr as feel like im wasting there time as so hard to even get see one. just hoping it was a one off being ill as never happened before and been running since 06

Tommygun why you coming notts? Im from there and would like know of flat marathon april may time.

VLM - how many ballot places actually available to UK runners?

Posted: 28/09/2012 at 16:37

why cant you enforce only ever running once through the ballot system in your life time, wouldnt that help as iv read on here before people who got in twice through ballot couple years apart.

With such a huge amount of people why not have vlm part 2 in the autumn.

im not saying for them to actually get in 2nd time but at least have the experience of rejection letter the first time they apply. I prefer flora way i missed out on that by a year. At least then you would know you will run one day but the way it is at the min you could enter every year for rest of your life and never get a place.

my 4th reject nd believe everyone sould get one reject letter before getting in and they should only ever be allowed get a ballot place once. if want do it again then do for charity to give others a chance. Iv read someone who did it twice through ballot last year which so unfair but iv got vlm blues at the min.

id love to know how much of the thousand runners raise actually go to work on the charity. After they have paid loads for the contract with vlm for places (few years ago some one said £400) then paid wages to people who work at the charity. etc etc. It was my 4th rejection and off to edinbrough i hope to run for a small local charity that supports me and my son. Its just the finances of getting to and from and having pay for accomondation as have no family close by to crash at like i do in london.

Iv said i have given up on going vlm but my partner told me carry on entering  then do it for my self if i ever get in. i only ever wanted to run just one full in my life and then local half and 10km to just keep fit. we have see how i feel in april when ballot opens again. i hate people get in on 1st attempt as well when people have waited years. think everyone should experience one reject letter and you should only get in once through ballot system not multiple times. If want do it again then get a charity place and give others the chance. this probly me with vlm blues again.

BIG HUG to all us rejects
