Hiya! Here I am at Junior Parkrun - hot and sweaty after doing 8km!!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I was sensible this time and ran round the undulating Park 1.5 times - really pleased with all the things Iโ€™ve learned that help keep me going - thanks everyone ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ. Took just under 1h 2mins.... now thereโ€™s a target if ever I saw one. Well, looks like theyโ€™re off, so better do my marshalling thing and keep stretching and hydrating. Happy running all!

Absolutely fantastic Equi!! ๐Ÿคฉ Congratulations to you! Thatโ€™s amazing!! Well done you!! Enjoy the marshalling it sure is a wet one. I was going out but with getting over a cold, Iโ€™ve decided best not to. Maybe later if it dies down a bit. โค๏ธ

๐Ÿ™ Thanks Fabulous! Hope you get over your cold quickly! I was relieved it was all done and dusted by 9.45 ๐Ÿ‘ I treated myself to a Costa latte on the way home to warm up, and now nice and clean and ready to enjoy the rest of the day.

Great achievement and as you say a great target ๐ŸŽฏ!! Iโ€™m not long back from a really **** run. No doubt a post will follow although Iโ€™m wallowing in self pity at the moment โ˜น๏ธ Wasnโ€™t even wet!! Really well done.

Thanks Sybil! Sorry you didnโ€™t have a great run this morning, youโ€™ll figure it out and look how far youโ€™ve come. One little glitch on the way wonโ€™t matter in the long term ๐Ÿค—

Thank you. I know the big picture, just struggling to see it at the moment.
