Congrats Ian, you'll be jingling while running 🀣

Haha, I never thought ! Is it compulsory to run in them πŸ…πŸ€”πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

Imc50Graduate10 in reply to Instructor57

Good grief yes ( hence the reason I choose to remain blingless 🀣) I'd stay away from the canal though as that weight it's gonna make you plummet to the bottom straight away πŸ€“

That looks good Ian, as you know I also ran the London Vitality Virtual 10,000, after the run I got a e mail saying that I would get a medal and T Shirt sometime before July 19th, maybe the organisers are sending out the medals in alphabetical order, that way runners with surnames beginning with A will be first and and anyone with the letter X, Y, and Z will be last, my surname begins with the letter M, so perhaps I will get mine in early July.

Instructor57 profile image
Instructor57Ambassador in reply to AlMorr

Mine begins with 'O' 🀣I also had the email saying July 19th at the latest , so I guess youl get yours soon πŸ˜πŸ‘

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Instructor57

Definitely not alphabetical order. 😊 πŸƒπŸΎ πŸŽ“

Instructor57 profile image
Instructor57Ambassador in reply to AlMorr

Instructor57 profile image
Instructor57Ambassador in reply to Irishprincess

Yes it's nice 😁Not sure I'm bothered about anymore but it's just nice to have one 😁

Anyway Imc50 tells me it's compulsory to run in your medals, in slow enough without the extra weight 🀣

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Instructor57

I am sure it's not that heavy to weigh you down when running πŸƒπŸΎ
