    My Running News

    Evening,

    Several of you Edugeekers have been extremely supportive of my running by sponsoring the different runs, talking about weight loss and so on. So I though I'd share with you the news that today I was chosen out of ~2600 other runners to attend the Runners World 26.2 Paris Marathon Bootcamp.

    You can read all about it here: Runner's World UK

    50 of us have been chosen. From what I know about last years, they will whittle it down to 15 and then to 5. The lucky 5 will get trained by ASICS and Runners World to run in the Paris Marathon in April.

    Fingers crossed.

    Gareth

    P.S. Sorry for blowing smoke out my own ar$e

    Well done you Gareth. As a now knee knackered retired runner I have total respect for you and hope you achieve the goal of being selected for the boot camp. I used to really love my running, wasn't so keen on pavement / road but a good cross country couldn't be bettered for brightening the day.

    Hi everyone,

    Okay - I come to you guys asking for your help. Really need everyone from Edugeek to help me out. No - I'm not asking for money but am asking for your votes.

    I've made it through as a finalist of the Runners World ASICS 262 Paris Marathon Challenge - I am one of 4 in the sub 5 hour category. I need your votes. It seems the ones with the most votes go through. So with your help you can help me realise my challenge and succeed in getting to the Paris Marathon.

    My link is here: Target 262 Sub 5:00 Finalists - I am at the bottom.

    Please vote. I'm sorry but I'm going to bump this up all week. Any chance it can go on the front page?

    Gareth
