So today was going to be a few firsts for me, first time running in shorts. Now I know that might not be a big deal but for me it was as just didn't have the confidence before .

Also today I ran my longest run ever, just over 16k. It was hard it was hilly in parts but it was beautiful and so rewarding.

Now I know I've said it lots of times but all you people on here have totally helped get me there with all your own running posts . So thank you ğŸŒžğŸŒžğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸ğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸

Well done Buddy. That is a cracking distance and time. I'm well chuffed for you! Absolutely fantastic. Shorts are definitely the future so well done on being brave and getting out there like that. Remember, you inspire us as much as we do you. Brilliant. I'm buzzing and I didn't even run it!!😂😂😂 rest up now and be really proud.

Wow, that's a great distance and time! I did my first 10 miles on Saturday, it's probably because I didn't wear shorts, but took me over 2 hours!! I completely understand the shorts issue, and I think you were brave and deserve to be very proud!! Well done!

Thanks and congratulations on you also running 10 miles. Once I was out running I just forgot all about the shorts , half my legs are tanned with running so the other half just need to catch up 🤣

And a brave move wearing shorts too! I was brave enough to wear mine once last summer 😂 But they just feel so much freer and cooler on very hot days 😄

Well done Buddy. 16km is fantastic - but running in shorts....... so brave. I could never unleash my milk bottles on the world - it’s just not ready 🤣🤣🤣. I bet it felt lovely to have the air on your legs.

I used to be embarrassed about being seen out running at all let alone in shorts, which is why I did it before 6am every morning. Now I don't give a damn and go out at any time of day :-)
