They called me a Runner ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Well I just did W7R3 and it was the hardest one yet. I have learned that drinking 3 espressos before a run doesn't really count as hydrating, I'm blaming that for the dizzy staggering when I finished. The best bit was when I encountered some ramblers who moved over and shouted "heads up" to the rest of the 'ramble' (not sure of the collective term for a group of ramblers) that a Runner was coming through, they called lil' old me Runner! ๐Ÿ‘. I even had enough puff to joke with them that they would probably catch me up! I am loving this journey and will miss it when I finish. Have a good weekend fellow Runners ๐Ÿƒ

That's great! I have a similar sense of like 'me, a runner?!'. I keep bumping into another runner and he gives me a look that seems to say 'we have a common bond' and I feel like saying 'no I'm not a proper runner!' But I am only on Week 3.

Keep it up!!!

Hey ! You are a runner! Anyone who gets out and does it is. I just find it hard to believe that I am one of them. So many years of wanting to dot it I don't think it's really sunk in yet . Keep on running!

Well done Bundoodle! Could you call them a Rumble of Ramblers?! Actually they are probably a Ramble of Ramblers :)

of course you're a runner- and well deserve that heads-up! :)

I like the idea of a Rumble of Ramblers ๐Ÿ˜‚ It sounds like a group of Ramblers who have been angered when the council have not maintained the path to their exacting standards๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿฒ

Nice post!...I graduated last year and would still probably turn around to see where this afore-mentioned runner was, if it happened to me! But yep, we are all runners!๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป

Aw, that is fab! (and I agree with Rainshine, I'd say a Rumble of Ramblers)
