Merry Christmas and here’s to 2020 πŸŽ„

β€’22 Replies

I had a long day at work yesterday, which meant I was battling the hordes in Tesco at 7.00pm and the other last minute things I was going to do yesterday didn’t get done. But this morning, I pulled on my running kit and went off in the sunshine for an Xmas Eve 5k trot. I hardly recognise myself and I know I wasn’t the only one from the regular ping of Strava feeds! Mused on the last year as I went round - the fantastic support and encouragement from VRBs on this forum and the wonderful meet ups starting with Southampton back in April, the challenge of the Wild Wine Run, the joy of tackling and beating Lyme Park, a brilliant weekend at the Great South Run. I feel so lucky to have met so many of you lovely people. Half Marathon to look forward to in March 😬 and hopefully many more miles and meet ups next year. Have a wonderful Christmas and happy running πŸŽ„πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ…πŸ»

Merry Christmas to you too Sandie! Yes, what a great running year it’s been, and here’s to many many more miles of running in 2020 - and more meetups of course! β€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ¦ŒπŸŽπŸ‘ xx


Sounds like you have had a fantastic year. All the best for your Β½ marathon, see it's so daunting when typed that small πŸ˜‰ son In law keeps telling me it's only 2 10ks and a bit but as I've only just managed 1 10k may be a while before I join you. Merry Christmas

It was explained to me as Great South plus a parkrun 😳 I’m sure you’ll get there eventually! Happy Christmas x


Happy Christmas to you too Sandie and let’s hope Santa brings you a few running goodies πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ„πŸ™‚

I think there are one or two little running related goodies under the tree. And to think I never used to know what people could buy me for Xmas πŸ˜‚ Happy Christmas IP x


A great year; 10k to 10 miles and all those fabulous meet ups too. HM on the horizon now, and all done at super speed. Just brilliant πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

So glad that you enjoyed your 5K Christmas Eve trot, I was in Tesco this morning at 8 o'clock, no hords but a bit busier than usual for that time of day, I wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas 🀢 πŸŽ„ and a happy running New Year πŸŽ‰πŸƒπŸΎ

And a very Merry Christmas & Happy Runny 2020 to you. πŸŽ‰ I was a very, very new runner when you all did the Southampton meet-up, and I felt such awe and amazement that all this was happening almost locally to me and I had no idea! πŸ˜³πŸ™ƒ It was such an inspiration to me. And now you’re holding out that HM on the path ahead... It keeps me trundling along the road, I tell you. πŸ˜„πŸŽ„

Sandie1961Graduate10 in reply to Granspeed
