Talkback: Win the ultimate spring marathon experience



  • Jane perhaps thats why Birmingham was chosen instead of London, time to visit Cadbury World before the running starts, just need to find out how many will be in the assessment team so I don't run out of chocolate.  Be a bugger to fail all for the sake of one mars bar!
  • That’s what they mean by 'reading with understanding': seeing "midday" a moon popped up in my head and I was convinced we had time till midnight. ehhhh my heart stopped for those few seconds while checking the sending time: 11.09am.  Alice,I know you're extremely busy trying to find my application to add it to the "selected" pile but could you tell us how many applications you've received? Thanks
  • I am expecting a delivery from Hotel Chocolat any day image

    FH - I don't do hats but I do have a nice line in tutus:

  • USB, Great TUTU, but no funny hat, if you get through I will be expecting a suitable HAT/TUTU COMBO !

    It must soon, my phone is charged and ready... but alas no calls... me sad !
  • The suspense is killing me.......   and now I will need to find a funny hat which shouln't be that difficult here at the funny farm!

    At least if we don't find out until Friday, we won't have to wait as long until the 4th December!!!

  • Do you know I think I'll fit a run in tonight, just in case it comes up in conversation at Birmingham next week.

    In a hat of course image

  •  <twiddles thumbs patiently>  I'd offer Twiglets and wine round but of course I am a serious athlete who would never eat unhealthy food (thats just in case the Asics nutrition team are reading).  imageimage

    Then again, did someone already mention chocolate???  In that case, who wants white wine and who wants red? image

  • We've worked out that chocolate mentions are safe, thats why the Boot camp is in Birmingham, Bourneville, Cadbury's World and all that stuff.  But wine, I don't think its been explored on this thread yet.  I have heard red can be good for you so will perhaps read a label or two to check whats in it!image
  • I think this might be allowed then image

  • You are way ahead of the game, if you can find it in a French version you must be in!

    Ho hum.  No phone call here.  They said we'd hear by the 24th, which is tomorrow, so I'm going to start reading the P&D book again tonight and plan my own schedule..image

  • Minni don't give up, it said Friday 24th so may not be tomorrow anyway.

    There is still hope, just be patient!

  • No news is good news right ? Perhaps it will be tomorrow !
  • I've been keeping away from this thread 'cause it just seemed like tempting fate to let my self start thinking it's possible. Couldn't hold out any longer though.

    And found out today I'll be in meetings most of tomorrow. Not sure how the boss will take me running out the room when the call comes in.......

    <says he who has run out of things to cross>

    If reality matched intention I'd know I was dreaming
  • I hope my hat with ears would be ok, should the call come.

    The suspense is killing me, and trying to live a normal life with everything crossed since Friday is interesting image!

  • I always like to see what the chatter is overnight, not too much different but somebody else has broken cover!  Phonecalls today or Friday?  Mobile sat waiting on my desk, very quiet isn't it!
  • oh bugger.........Just when i'd resigned myself to having been put in the "No, not you" pile of applications as I hadn't had the call, I come across you lot and now realise I may have been too hasty in writing myself off??? image

    So, joining you here in limbo..........ring phone ring (please)image

    I took friday 24th to mean friday 26th

    anyway, if any of the folk who have been posting regularly on this thread get picked they'll suddenly become conspicuous by their absence after friday, if the boot camp list is secret

  • Has anyone found out about the results yet??
  • They'll probably tell them to keep posting pretending to be image

    I know last year when it went straight to voting my friend was told to stay schtum.  I found out a day or so after I saw her at a race.

  • I think it will be MUMS THE WORD.   

  • is it possible someone from runners world could at least confirm they have made some phone calls??????
  • To keep your mind off the selection process and any phone call you may or may not get I have come up with a few songs with a theme of time or getting (OR NOT) a place :







    Now its over to you .......... 


    WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS (very optimistic one there!!!!)




  • Hello Super Six hopefuls!

    I am going to put you all out of your misery/conspiracy theories to confirm that we will be calling the lucky selection day attendees by the end of the week.

    I'm afraid I can't say any more at this point, except to thank you for all your applications and ask you to be patient!

    Hope that clears things up!

    Alice RW

  • Alice thanks for that, though I reckon that gives us two days of misery and plenty of time to think up a few more conspiracy theories.  Just following on from one of the many threads on here, what sort of chocolate do you eat?image
  • They'll be calling by the end of the week?!?!?  More waiting!  image 

    Alice, can you hint as to whether you've started calling people yet?!?  Or are all of the calls going to be within a set period of a day, perhaps Friday?
