Wonderful photo Al! Lovely to see you still sporting your impressive beard along with your well earned tee shirt and medal, and Holly is adorable. β€οΈπŸ•

Ha ha regarding the beard CC, remember the photo I posted at Christmas with Holly, the length of the beard in December was just over 9 inches, now it is just over 12 inches and showing no signs of slowing down, there is a 17 years old college student living near to where I live, her long dark hair extends down to her waist and also shows no sign of slowing down.

cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Oh wow that’s very long Al! I wonder how long your beard will end up? πŸ˜€ I do remember your photo at Christmas and I thought that was long too!

My hair has never been past my shoulders - that college student must take a long time washing that hair of hers! πŸ˜…

AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

No man really knows how long his beard will grow, its all down to genetics, same with a female regarding length of hair, that girls mother has also got long hair, however, her hair is only half the length of her daughters, of course she may not allow it to grow or it just doesn't grow any longer, I don't know her all that much to ask.

AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to DylanTheRabbit

Glad you like the photo Dylan, I have had my beard for six years but I trimmed it down to 3 inches in December 2019, since then I only trim the top of my sideburns and keep the mustache trimmed to half a inch.

I didn't tell Vitality that I ran two 10Ks, even if I had I would not have got 2 medals or 2 T Shirts, Holly is a very happy and friendly dog.

Thanks Week7, no way would they send me two of each, I sort of regret losing my Bib but after that first run, which was the quickest I felt very annoyed, but anyway all became good after the second run.

I agree with you Sandraj39 regarding the T Shirt and medal, Holly is a beautiful Golden Retreiver, she tends to be quite shy at times, if a dog or even a cat threatens her she will pull away from it.

I am glad that you like my new T Shirt and medal Birdlady64, I do think the shirt suits me, as for the beard, I only started growing it when I was 69, I wanted to grow one as a teenager but my parents would not allow me, they didn't want me to look like a "hippy" πŸ˜‚I think Holly the dog is very happy, especially when I take her walks.

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Dexy5

Indeed Dexy, thanks for your post, I did promise you that I would report when I ran that London Vitality Virtual 10,000, I didn't realise that I would have to run it twice because my app failed to post my time after the first run which to say the least was very annoying,

Remember last year in May you organised for the runners on this forum a unofficial London 10 000, I took part in that run, it was on Monday 25th May, my time then was 1.13.21, this year the quickest time of those 2 runs was 1.11.40

What a lovely photo!

Isn’t it a real boost to get your first running medal? My LEJOG is my first. Now I’ll need to work towards another.

If you do decide to do the Santa run Al, your beard will suit it perfectly! Holly looks gorgeous as ever. Perhaps she could run with you and wear a little headband with antlers to be Rudolph?

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Delly-dot

Thank you Delly dot, I have tried to run with Holly, however, she has the bad habit of stopping suddenly then running like a greyhound almost tripping me over, certainly I won't put on an artificial beard if I run that Santa Dash in December, ha, I don't think that I need it, congratulations on completing Lejog and getting a πŸ₯‰ medal.
