Yesssssss! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

Well done Paul. Now you’ve done it once you’ll find it easier and easier - and you might even end up preferring it to the treadmill. Cooler for starters.

Brilliant. Bet you’re chuffed to pieces. 🏃🏃🏃👍

Whoohoo! Another convert! I’m glad you enjoyed it! Now you’ll not look at your surroundings the same way again - i’m always scouting areas that look like a nice spot to run when I’m out and about.

Whoopppeee! Well done you. I bet you're wondering why you didn't do it sooner. The great outdoors has been there waiting for you, and I'm sure you're going to enjoy your Sunday runs with your son. :-)
