I wouldn't be concerned about being in the top of the most active members as I'm sure as long as the people chosen can get on here each day to report and write a detailed blog that should be fine. Afterall the training will need to be done too. I get up and train at 6am, then post on here while having breakfast, I then go to work and occasionally will post if I have a break during the day and the time to get on, like now and then I go home do more training, do some other stuff and post again in the evening. Nobody could be expected to blog all day!
Oi Hilly - hands off my top spot!
The previous winners haven't blogged all day, don't worry. Some of the threads are still going if you wanted to have a look at them to see what sort of thing they've done. Wotsit's thread was very good and I enjoyed following her progress because she was the closest time wise to what I would've wanted to do. That's why they have a spread of times and abilities. Hopefully we can all identify with the journey of one of the runners.
Just thought I'd share my pain and joy this morning. Ran (all the way) 16 miles on Sunday. Managed to crawl out of bed this morning and do a speedy session (for me) on my treadie. after a lengthy warm up ran 1.25 miles at 6.2m/hr. woo hoo.
nobody else understands this stuff.
Since this comeptition appeared I have moved from 14000 (somewhat close to the bottom of the member list) to 5000 something. Problem with being a watcher than a writer.
Ang12 - lovely use of "too". For your grammer efforts you get my vote.
You're not getting mine Samoir!
Grammar has two "A"'s.....
I registered on the forum last year sometime but I must admit to not posting very much (if at all ) and was just going to leave it totally to chance........
But having read through the thread thought I had better post something.
I am never going to win any competitions if they come down to the number of posts or if you have to be called Colin - but I do live in the North!
I promise that if I win my posts will not ramble on too long and I will do my best to get my grammar correct.
And if I win I will make the most of the experience because I will be doing it for all of us who entered but did not get shortlisted - I will not waste the chance!
..........only one more day till the competeion closes
I've been out training this morning .............so will have to start posting to nick the baton off that LB...........she's been near the top for ages but I only got their recently.............Its not fair
( the number of posting you have or your position on the league table will not effect the voting honest...........simon said he would decide on who deserved it most.)
Sam, can't believe people would so blatantly have a go at your grammer on here, or is gramma! Do I get your support now?
I'm not sure if being active on here and how high up that list really matters, or whether you're called Colin and live in the North, I'm not and I don't, but it has certainly generated quite a bit of activity and some funny comments.
Of course it has also been a pleasure corresponding with the said very intelligent, extremely funny superb runners that make up the most Active members on this list who of course will need to be voting soon.
Feeling keen after this glimmer of hope RW /Lucozade has chucked our way i thought i'd pop out for a 10 miler this morning (on the off chance they decide an inexperienced newbie is worth short listing) - it seems my excessive over eating at GBK last night did me no favours and my nike plus chip has given up (although really it never started!). It kindly told me i ran 0.34m in an hour and a half which seems unbelievably slow....even for me!! I've had nothing but problems since i've started using it which makes tracking my distances very difficult... even more so when all you can think of is the big tin of cookies waiting at home for you. I need to up my motivation... anybody looking for a running partner in Cardiff? Or can recommend any good routes...the Taff Trail is becoming too famiar...!!
How did you know about the state of my tongue?
Seren - I am not sure anything has changed, most of my posts are rubbish, but if I win they will be full of pearls of wisdom that I gain from the wonderful training advice I receive, promise!
I'm not voting for KK - she has too many birthdays!

oh bum. I cannot believe I did that. How embarrersing (hee hee). Honest I can spell guv. It's the keyboard.
Are you our beloved PM Samoir?
I must be in with the luck I have had this last year and at my time of life the opportunities must be getting slimmer. Please Mr Lucozade you need someone from the beautiful Peak District in this, just think of the photo opportunities it would make as I run through Bakewell with a pudding in hand and head up the Monsal Trail with the beautiful Edges in the background of the picture........... AAhh well I can but dream.
I will keep putting one foot in front of the other and hope...........
Filling in the questionnaire now.
Struggling with my 100 words, though.
