Actually I'll say a bit more, nobody but you, me or Keir has commented since 9.54
Some of us have to keep the coutnry running you know
If you've got weather like I have LM it's a beautiful day for a run
I'm just about to go into my review with my boss...take my mobile and pretend it's an important customer in the off-chance they'll call?
it's because we are all glued to the phones now ...
Cant understand why they havent phone me yet surely i would be top of there list! LMAO
Come on fess-up, who has had the call ?
Honesty will get my vote ...
Its gonna be a late call if its coming my way. I am actually looking at going at alternative arrangements for the 4th December now, which will not need any running, possibly a few quick moves to hit a space at the bar and some good banter with a whole load of guys I used to be in the Forces with.
I can still change my plans though RW/Asics
I don't think I will be getting the call now..... boooooo boooooo
I will however keep the phone on just in case.
Could the end of the week be Sunday? Or am I looking just looking for excuses as to why I have not received a call yet.......
Not dissaopointed that no one has had a cal yet because my phone packed up this morning and has only been working again for the last hour.
Yep, I reckon the phone calls would have been made on Wednesday or Thursday, giving the chosen few a chance to change their mind, therefore allowing today for 'extra' phone calls.
I agree, it would be interesting to know what what ticked the boxes. I'm ordinary, with a goal and a realistic target but I suppose that doesn't sound very exciting in 100 words!
I'm going to start writing my 100 words for next year's competition now. But it would be good to get some forum feedback. Once we know the 6 we will all be able to make up our minds on how well they fitted the profile
Six highly enthusiastic runners (of all abilities)
Motivation and the desire to succeed are more important than your previous race times You'll already be a registered member of runnersworld.co.uk and you'll feel at home chatting on our forums, whether you're analysing a recent session with your mentor, discussing what you ate for breakfast with a nutritionist or simply chewing the fat with other runners.
But what in their 100 word write up ticked the final box to get a call? Perhaps they are all English teachers or novelists. Hmm perhaps I need to write a book
1 word ........ gutted .
My dream, like yours is over. We will all have to wait and see who were the chosen few .
It must be hard to pick 50 runners out of 2000 + applications, with so many compelling cases as to why they should pick you or me !
We are lucky that we are able to run, so it aint all bad.
Keep on running ....
With you there Funny Hat, not getting in is disappointing but it doesn't stop you running and enjoying a year of training and races, time to write a book of course, and try again next year.
I'm happy with that
I notice a newbie has posted that they are going to Birmingham.............I thought they were sworn to secrecy until the list was published
I thought that I would not be chosen as I had questiuoned if the coaches were up to the complicated job of coaching me in my 100 words

Bridget, the weather this morning, and infact the whole week has been just divine for running, freezing cold, blue skies and the sun just sneaking through and warming you up
Funny Hat - Was so looking forward to celebrating tonight BUT ... there is always parkrun tomorrow!!! Wonder if I will fall over in the ice
