Okay so here's the bling

Okay so here's the bling

Absolutely shattered after the 10k - no official time yet but around 55 minutes somewhere. While the medal is pretty, I have a complaint - instead of a banana at the end, there was a peanut butter crunchy bar! Peanut butter! Seriously! :)

Nice bling. We get bananas at ours. I hate peanut butter.

It is vile disgusting stuff and to steal a line from Father Ted - along with pop tarts, has no place in our Lords plan for the world! :)

What! You don't know what you're talking about.

It's nutritious, delicious, can be spread on anything. 😀😀😀

It's also brilliant to renovate dull exterior plastic on your car, I kid you not if you spread it n the faded black part of door mirror surrounds or bumper protection strips it has them looking like new it no time.

Well done for the stomping good time! Peanut butter on the finishing line? Yeucccch. Almost as incongruous as Coke sponsoring the event. :)

That's a great time, well done you, super speedy! I would have thrown up if some one gave me peanut butter at the end of a race, yuk, yuk, yuk....still,, another one of life's delightful experiences, and the bling was worth it, oh yes! 😄

Happy running 😄

Peanut butter is the runner's friend. Good protein 😊 My running pal always runs her races on peanut butter on toast. I'm even manage to slip some into the middle of my choccy mug cake

Well done on your 10k ☺ Fab time!

Well I thought so. I never liked it still I made an effort to start using it when I started eating well. You can use it with spices as curry paste. That was my first use for it. Since then I extended my repertoire. I don't like the crunch and taste of peanuts but don't mind the butter. You use it for the energy bars etc with fruit and stuff and you wouldn't know it was there, but the protein is good for us runners. Almond butter is lovely. I have that with a sliced red apple 😊amongst other things

Almond butter? I might try that.

It's calorific so I use a teaspoon and just have the one 😊 Crisp red apple slices to dip in, makes a lovely snack. I buy the Meridian brand

Ooh that's really nice bling! I might have to fly over and do that one next year 😉

Just read your other post first about your time. Fab or what! Seriously well done to you. Was it a nice course? Wasn't there Coca Cola at the end too?

Clearly you haven't read my peanut butter rant yet! A bottle of water and a peanut butter crunch bar Siobhan! Peanut butter! Seriously! (this is Siobhan isn't it?

Just read it! I guess they just assumed most runners would love a peanut butter crunch bar. Yum yum. Nope I'm not Siobhan 😏 amateurwriter is called Siobhan. I'm the princess 👑 😊

The course wasn't too bad, but I had it in my head that when we turned on to a particular road we only had a short distance to go - this particular road is 1.8 miles long! And then you had to go up into the town and up again to the finish line! Nightmare!

Worth it for the bling though!
