Vote Sarah in GFA - previously lardy girl does good! ;)



  • In many ways, I'm the perfect friendimage

  • Almost the perfect friend ... If only I could buy your vote too!image

    So ... Last day guys!! Any burning questions you'd like to ask before its too late? image
  • How's the sub 20min 5k challenge coming on? Hope you haven't beaten me already!!

  • hi, im York, but if im at my parents in sheffield, nottingham would be about half way between us im sure. Will have to look at the dates image

  • Steve, I'm chipping away at it! New PB a couple of weeks ago of 21:34 ... New PB by 22 seconds. Just need a few more improvements like that and I'll be on my way to sub-20!! image

    So ... The challenge is on ... How is your 5k?! image
  • Sarah - That would be fab! So where's halfway if you're in York ... ? image

  • RRR - mine is 22:22 so I'm a bit behind!! Got some catching up to do, but I do love a challenge image See you in the 19 minutes...!image

  • See you in the 19s ...! image You reckon we can knock 2 minutes off by mid 2013?

  • Sounds like you will win on the effort you have put into mobilise the vote. I didnt really have any electronic friends or friends that savvy with running and computers, think I had very few on FBook and none on Twitter, not really got into Twitter at all.....too busy working of course. Who do you work for with 13500 employees? They have been generous to put you on the intranet. Well done and if you dont get the call today all the best for your running and come over to one of our nutty threads and say hi if you haven't turned pro runner and if you are at any races let us know though we might spot you now you have been all over here. All the best to all the folk campaigning. Dont envy you at all, didn't enjoy that part last year.

  • MCS - I wish I had your faith image I follow and chat with a lot of runners on Twitter - have a really, really nice group on there. They keep me sane, cheer me up and cheer me on. Same with Facebook - I feel very loved this week. Even if I don't make it through, I will always be very grateful for the support. Think I owe people a LOT of drinks for their efforts! image

    Will definitely keep on popping in to say hi on Au Revoir Cobbles thread. I haven't been on so much recently as haven't liked to look as though I'm campaigning for votes! image

    Whereabouts are you based? Would be great to catch up at a race!

    Definitely! Bring it on...

  • Eek! Heading for the M1 now ... trying to navigate my way through freezing fog! The weather should make my run this evening more atmospheric though! Woooo-ooo-ooo!

  • Oooh oooh - if you're heading Nottingham way - let me know - I've done the Colwick parkrun a few times - it's not the fastest but it's nice... ps - since you're all faster than me just now - maybe I'll do the beep beeping at the registration instead! LOLOLOLOLOL

  • RRR, Nottingham is good for me. I spend alot of my time back in sheffield anyway image

    We could form a sub 19 thread?? image

  • Thank you Bacon Steve!image

    SB - I've heard the Colwick parkrun mentioned a few times as a good one. I think one of my twitter buddies must run there. Well ... sounds a plan! Sarah - Any race we do Nottingham way should include a Saturday morning parkrun in Colwick? What do you reckon? Sounds good to me! Would be good to have a catch up SB!

    Sarah - Are you trying to KILL me? Can't we start with sub 20???


  • Sub 19?!? You're certainly ambitious Sarah!image

    SB, care to join us on the sub-20-not-quite-as-fast-as-Sarah thread? image

  • SB, Steve, Sarah - So ... this is to be our 2013 challenge then? image

  • All this talk of sub 19min 5ks has made me feel quite faint! I'd be more than happy getting as close to 20 as possible.

  • Ady - tell me about it! I'm hoping Sarah is going to confirm that was a typo and she's not in fact crazy image

  • Ady - So you're in? image

    Bacon Steve, SB - Sounds like we have a team forming ...! image

    Sarah -  I need to check this sub-20 thing ... please tell me you're not as insanely quick as we're suspecting ...?! Otherwise we may need to give you a handicap of some sort. Take one of your trainers away or something ...image

  • Haha, ok let's go for a sub 20 ( we can always revise it in a couple of weeks)!
  • RRR, Steve and Sarah - can anyone join this sub 19 5k? are there any prizes involved?

  • RRR  last few hours of posting well done for keeping the Botcamp party going and good luck

  • Sarah - I *knew* it! You ARE trying to kill me! OK ... sub 20 with intention of turning the thread into a sub-19 when we've all achieved it! image

    Tony's onthebeach - You're more than welcome! image Although I suspect you too may be fiendishly fast ... c'mon own up ... what's your 5k time?

    Prizes include: glory and the chance to be smug! Oh and possibly a paper crown. (I'll save you the one from my cracker!)image


  • Good luck everyone!!! It has been AMAZING to meet you all!

    Remember ... the party doesn't stop here!! I want to carry on chatting to all of you and I reckon Malc's idea of Thunder Run 24 as the bootcamp meet up is a fab one!

    Besides ... I'll be able to show off my sub-20 5k by then ...image


  • Sarah - well I guess christmas is the time of miracles... I might need one to go sub 19!

    RRR - Haha well you might be waiting a while for me to get there to change the thread over!!

    Tony - would love to have you along! Reckon we should call ourselves "the 19 minuters"...

  • Steve - miracles / mince pies ... It's all good! image
  • Miracles and mince pies... you can't go wrong! Gotta love Christmas image

  • Off out for a run today? It looks amazing here - everything is so frosty and icy! Might need ice skates rather than trainers, mind ...

    Off out for a Christmas lunch with some friends today. not sure I can resist the mince pies and cream ..! Or the mulled wine!image
