I'm in !!!!
Just checked my email after reading the posts above.... absolutely over the moon and shocked !!! Makes up a little bit for not getting into VLM12...
Grump, grump, grump. I wonder if there are any charity places...
Can't believe it if I'm honest. Look at the amount of people on this thread alone that have applied so just think how many who don't come on here have applied as well.
Like people have said, if it isn't for you fair enough. But to get the chance to run inside the Olympic Stadium (in the Olympic year) is massive.

Yes, you had to suck up to them to get in. I put 'It would be the greatest moment of my life. It would allow me to put behind me the years living on the streets of Central London as crack addict while working as a male prostitute and part time getaway driver. And it'd make my mum proud of me, at last.' I think it was something like that. But my memory's not so good these days.
My son just asked.....won't the stadium be just like gateshead stadium and after the day you can just pay £2 ands runa round the trackon a session
Congrats to those who got in - I decided to enter on impulse last night, then got the email today to say I didn't get in
Damn that cheesy question that I didn't answer......
Ah. I believe my answers were ''.'' and ''.'' respectively.
I got in, but my OH doesn't know yet. Thought it was a scam when it arrived, as I wasn't expecting to hear until November. Anyway, I am looking forward to it, bottleneck or not..
I did write a load of rubbish about it having a special big 0 birthday in March 2012...but I assumed that it was a genuine "out of the hat" ballot?
I am in and will really enjoy taking a look at the Olympic Park - I won't be there during the Olympics. But as many people it wouldn't be disappointing (edit - If I hadn't got in). Just have to decide whether to run Reading Half on the 1t April now.
Sorry to hear about all of you who didn't get in.
I expect the question is just so they can pick something out for the media. Philpub clever use of the '.' Not that it helped you any.
My bf and I were both unsuccessful.
But on the plus side we did get some tickets to the Paralympics athletics events
I'm not in.
I reckon that answering the question with "Well, it will inspire me to stop giving crack to my getaway driver in exchange for blow jobs and to take up running instead" might have gone against me.
