  • You can always pay Gobi to coach you......

    I'll be up for mentoring again. As long as it's no one annoying.

    Minni is right, we should be ready to announce just before chrimbo. 

  • image Splendid.

  • Well done T.Mouse on getting the ideas sorted out!

    Looks like there are enough of us to see this happen again.

    How have you gone about touting for mentors in the past. Do you get plenty of volunteers or do you ask around? What sort of work goes on in the background? Anyone else doing the Giants Head marathon by the way? I think we should have a special mentor mentee thread just for that. image

    I agree with the Giant's Head threadimage I'm doing it as well

  • I believe we announced winners on Christmas Eve or thereabouts last year (memory may be a bit dim)!!



    Once the RW have announced their 6 I'll get a thread started and will source some mentors in the meantime ????
  • @Meldy - can you also post what you'd want from a mentor - there might be some people who are interested but not sure what's required.

  • I benefited greatly from this 2 years ago.................after spending 4 yrs cgipping away 8 mins from my marathon PB................with the forum 6 I knocked off 28 mins in one go.my best race ever and broke all my other pbs as well.........

    well worth entering...........

    I of course will be one of the official ones this year but will follow these unofficial ones as well image

  • I will vote for you Seren.........image

    Have you already been told, Seren? Well done!

  • No emmy..i'm working on the fact that after so many rejections I will get an automatic placeimageimage

  • Lol! Good luck! I'm sure they apply the 5 times refusal and you're in image

  • Emmy good idea ... Just popping off to work so I'll update as soon as I can



    I am pleased there is still a level of interest out there image
  • Please don't let the best tradition on the RW forums die out.

    I wouldn't be where I'm now without the DD / Minni sub 3:30 thread image

  • +1 for the RW mentoring being a fanastic thing ... I was in last years looking to improve my mara PB and the legend that is Dubai Dave, guided me through to not only smash my PB , but also my target time and way beyond.

    I would seriously recommend anyone gives it a go, especially those who's training (like mine) may be lacking a bit of structure and knowledge.

      

  • Don't mean to change the subject - but WHERE has everyone gone and WHY? Is it that place which sounds like a command to a dog? and is it because this place became boring without D2D?  image

  • What do we need to do to apply? (Please note I have been warned not to send pictures of my underwear to strangers) 

  • Keep an eye out for the thread and submit a pitch to state your worthinness  image

    General rules are usually to have a spring/summer marathon place, we moved away from a VLM place to give every one a chance  !

  • I've not really noticed anyone leaving but I mainly stick to the marathon thread.  I use that 'dog stick' place to log my runs but I don't partake in any chat - I don't understand how their forums work for starters.  Better the devil you know and all that.

    Keir, you need to do a pitch - yes, sell yourself. image  Bit on background, target, current training etc.  Show some pictures of your kids! image

    It got me under 3:30 a couple of years ago.  I needed someone to keep me on the straight and narrow - DD failed in that respect image but did push me to 3:28. image

  • Who's going to organise the free running shoes?

  • You can have a pair of my old ones (low mileage) and I'll chuck in a pair of socks as well!
  • I've always liked following the Forum 6 threads to see the contrast in advice (in a good way - positive)

    I have a pair of Asics gel foundations that I can't use anymore.. 30 miles in them (if that)... and to make it fair - i've got a few spare race t-shirts that i've never worn as team kitimage

    Any idea when the thread is likely to be sent out ?

  • usually the wait until the official people have been chosen for a shortlist.then those who were not shortlisted can put their names in the hat..............it is never before december.....it part of the christmas cel;ebrations.....so i would think in 3 or 4 weeks time.....you will just have to keep on logging on every day to check imageimage

  • Nice one, thanks image

  • It's almost as exciting as waiting for that hariy bloke with his big sack to come down my chimney

  • No....... you can have me image

  • Sorry Seren - One of those annoying phantom posts when reloading in a different browser - so I changed my message, only to see you have replied to the origional one.

    However, your answer now means I am even more excited image

  • keir - are you misbehaving? image
