Asics262 - 2015

Well done to everyone who made Bootcamp. I'm soooo jealous as it brings back so many memories for me - from start to finish the whole process changed me as a person. I'd do it all again tomorrow.

Andrea B: Where in Carmarthen are you? I applied for a job in Bro Myrddin the other year. i'm in Brynaman.

So again, good luck to everyone.

Seren Nos: I hate buggy computer systems.

Hmmmm - seems the forums 'are' moderated with my post telling seren to wind her neck in being deleted or removed. (I cannot find it anyway).

Well done Runner's World. Now take proper ownership of your forums.

Oh seren nos - you are really starting to grind on my nerves now. You really have to get over yourself. 

"paid or unpaid" blah blah blah - live with it. Are you really such a bitter person?

I took 4 days unpaid leave when I entered. So what.

You have your opinion and it's respected - but get over yourself and wind your neck in. I am not the only 'winner' last year that you upset constantly and I really do not blame people for moving their votes to Twitter. You are one person - so I doubt they care whether you give them the vote or not.

Seren Nos - I'm sorry for the rant but you keep winding me up. If you don't like things go and join another forum. Running Bug is a good one.

There are some fair bitter people on here. IT'S NOT YOUR FORUM!!! It's for everyone.

In my opinion - Runner's World need to start moderating these forums.

Sorry guys. It's been a stressful week and some people just take the biscuit.

ASICS Target 26.2 voting 2015: Meet the sub 3-ers

Posted: 03/12/2014 at 21:24

Well done all. I'm not going to be following this group as I'm not there yet - but I do have a question for you all:

I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.

ASICS Target 26.2 voting 2015: Meet the sub 4.30-ers

Posted: 03/12/2014 at 21:23

Hi 4:30 ‘ers

Nice to meet you all. Congratulations to you all for getting to where you are. You must be buzzing. Now the work begins Hopefully I’ll stay in this forum - it’s up to you guys to keep us here interested for the next week or so before we move onto the winner threads. Good luck to you all - there are some tough forumites here who need pleasing

This is the thread I will be following as I’ve been aiming for a 4:30 since Paris. I’m down to 4:42 so not far to go.

@Craig Jenkins: Welcome. Great bio. Thanks for sharing.

@Kirsten Sharpe: Be excited - but manage expectations. There will be some tough questions asked on the forums. The bug you get with running is a bugger. But well done for finding it.

@Isabel - Hey you - you made it back. Miss you Louise says hi.

Everyone - Isabel was a legend in Paris. What a girl. Well worth listening to.

Where are all the other 4:30 runners?

Message to you all - I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.

ASICS Target 26.2 voting 2015: Meet the first timers

Posted: 03/12/2014 at 21:18

Hi First Timers,

Nice to meet you all. Congratulations to you all for getting to where you are. You must be buzzing. Now the work begins Hopefully I’ll stay in this forum - it’s up to you guys to keep us here interested for the next week or so before we move onto the winner threads. Good luck to you all - there are some tough forumites here who need pleasing

@charles henderson: Welcome. Thanks for posting your bio. That’s a greta job you do. I thought about becoming a paramedic once - but never went along that route. You guys to a great job. I was like you - wishing that I’d found running earlier in life. It has changed me. Good luck to you. My only advice to you would be to keep confident - but manage your expectations (wait until you meet Victor for advice on managing this stuff.)

I agree with tinyrunner85 - not all first timers get it wrong. Some are blighted by injury! Ahem.

@Ant McNeill: Great to read your bio mate. Great stuff and again similar to my story so I can relate to you. I’d hit a 38” waist!!! M&S trainers? NO matter - a run is a run is a run.

@Sean Prichard: How about a bit more bio Sean before the forumites realise you’ve not said much Welcome. Tell us about what kit you use….. your life… you belong to us for the next week or so…. I see you mention the Cardiff Half - are you Welsh? You ran Swansea 10k as well? So you have to be local - this could benefit you with my vote.

@Harriet Burrows2: Number 2? Is there another Harriet Burrows on the forum? Tell us a bit more about yourself Harriet.

Message to you all - I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.

@Andrea B - Tregaron - sounds good. I'll take a look via Google in a bit. We have ESTYN in this week so any thought of running/swimming has been on hold.

I need to get back out there. @Malcs - I'm planning on getting back out there

@Andrea B - I've entered the Llanelli Half this year if you are running that.

Good luck everyone whatever run you do.

@Frocker: Don't be too hard on yourself. Try again next year and keep on running. Hope you stick around the forum. Sorry you didn't get through.

@running-rosie: Same to you as above - sorry you didn't get through.

@Malcs: I agree with you there - last year at Bootcamp I hardly spoke to Sam Murphy except to thank her if she said well done etc. Yes I briefly spoke to the camera guys - but I don't recall anyone from RW speaking to me specifically.

@emdee: Gutted for you pal.

@buxton: ....and you.

@Moustachioz: .... and you. Sorry.

@Andrea B: Gutted - I was hoping to support you if you got through - especially as we are linked somehow through colleagues.

@Craig Bowdery: Sorry. I too am looking forward to seeing the choices.

@BK Canter: Sorry Mate.

Well I agree with Frocker here - we have no idea who has gone through. Everyone here so far have been unsuccessful. I thought peope would have started by now - unless they have been told to wait until their pictures go online.

Oh well - dim ots. Try again next year people. Took Malcs 2 years of hassling the staff and begging Runner's World to let him to it
