Hmmm... well I think I could provide a valuable insight to runners everywhere into exactly how feasible it is to chat up French women whilst trying to run a marathon... Valuable research, I'm sure you'll agree!
Sarah humm I was in Whitby on the weekend and they had snow!!
Bacon obviously you will be concentrating on being focused and completing your goal not the hot french totty around you!!
oh and not sure why just liked it!!
Tigs - I'll do my best... no promises!
Sarah - Ah... I won't tell you who I support then... I've only just got to know you and it's too early to upset you!
I reckon it's a great idea and, as I said on another thread, I tend to speed up if I see a pretty girl ahead... If I line up enough along the route, I think I can crack sub 3
Christmas smilies for all had to clear my cache before they appeared
Best of luck with the vote - been so nice chatting to everyone
RRR - definitely up for that - sounds like great fun and a fab way to have a reunion!
Do it, do it, do it - TR24 is amazing.
So, bacon boy - with the minutes ticking away I just wanted to say well done on a fantastic thread. I wish you the best of luck for the final decision and hope to see you in the not so distant future.
This morning is turning into one big 26.2 love in - sickening isn't it
Thanks Malcs, you guys have been great. So, so pleased I entered and got the opportunity to meet you guys
Haha more sickening than a whole crate of mince pies and five pints of cream we love it really
Ok you have me thinking now....my first guess would be wednesday, followed by Leeds and then nots forest/barnsley, or maybe palace, we dont like them much at the moment, and then there is chelsea whove relegated us in the past and.....god the list goes on....do we actually like anyone???
I dont let football get in the way of friendship, football is important, but not that important . Glad you got the santa faces working!
Been lovely to get to know you over the last week. Good luck,x
Good luck Steve. Your son is a lucky guy!
Sarah - I am a happy Hammer - at least you didn't list us in the first list of enemies haha!
Yes, got there in the end!
Lovely getting to know you too - I'm sure we'll all keep in touch on here, regardless of the result... which I hope they hurry up with. Patience is not one of my virtues Good luck! x
Jen - Thank you, that's really sweet of you I feel like I'm the lucky one - he is such a fantastic kind and I'd do anything for him... Hope I get this so he can show me off in the mag in "show and tell"!
Best of luck to you too - hopefully see you both in Paris!
Eeek! So what do I do now??!
*fantastic son, I meant!!
RRR - I know! We're going to have to find a new hobby now! I'll probably run about 70 miles next week just for something to do
Well ... just think how far we could all run if we spent all the previous forum time, running! I reckon I'd end up in Moscow or somewhere within the week!
Would probably be a bit warmer there!!
....thankyou for reminding me....it was your fault that we were relegated in 2009
im retracting my support!
Only kidding, like I said, i love my football, but there are more important things in life!
I may be a little blonde and of the dizzy variety at times, but the TR24 running 24hrs yep got that, camping in tent yep got that, missing where the celebratory drinks come in??
Sarah I used to live in Whitby for three years! not the best place to live that's for sure!!
Bacon I'm really glad you made it to the 'judges house's' not only have you earned your place as a runner and a team player, you also earned yourself a nickname!!
Looking forward to hear your Essex squeals all the way in Derby when you find out you get in!!!
Tigs - haha Essex squeals?? What have people been saying about us Essex boys?
Sarah - Phew! Glad you're willing to forgive and forget! My whole family have been West Ham supporters for years - I reckon if I hadn't followed suit, I would have been disowned!!
Ooh yes - isn't that the Marathon du Medoc? I would be TOTALLY up for a race where there are alternative refreshments..! There was a stand at this years Reading half where they were hanidng out beer and pork scratchings ... I wasn't brave enough to give them a go though!
Sarah - Haha my mum was the same - I remember going to a Liverpool match many, many (many, many) years ago and she was jumping around, cheering and hugging strangers so much... was proper embarrassing!
She used to work in a pub in Green Street (where our stadium is) when she was 19/20 and used to serve all the players after the game, back when after the match they used to pile into the pub and drink a few pints of bitter (!)
RRR - Alternative refreshments sound good! I'm hopefully doing the Artemis Quadrathlon next year (http://www.artemisgreatkindrochit.com/) and they have an Bikini Island halfway down the canoe route where you get a pina colada... sadly it's non-alcoholic
Steve - That looks amazing! I read an article in a running mag a few months ago which covered something similar - looked really tough but a huge achievement! Wow!
Non-alcoholic? Well what's the point of putting a cocktail umbrella in it then?
Sarah - Well if you're *really* good then we'll let you take some water along as well. Just as a treat, mind. Don't expect to be allowed water EVERY time
Congratulations Steve, i will be following you on your journey
WHOOO HOOOOOO I CAN HEAR YOU SQUEALING YOU BUTCH ESSEX BOY!!!!!!
Is the news out then? Who is in?
Sarah Whitby in Halloween isn't too bad, if you really want to see some sights hit the goth weekend!!! It's..... erm.... interesting! Really busy all the charity shops (and they have a lot) dress the windows in Gothic clothing!! really funny! interesting when you have toddlers asking you loudly what are they wearing!!
