Ho, ho ho! (Hurry up Santa it is nearly Christmas!)

Ho, ho ho! (Hurry up Santa it is nearly Christmas!)

Ran in a 2 mile Santa Dash last Saturday - what fun (well apart from the hilly start which was more huff, puff than ho ho!). Nearly 250 Santas of all ages, what an amazing sight. Mulled wine, hot chocolate and naughty sweet treats at the end. All in a good cause too - the local Mountain rescue team, which hubby is a part of. In the photo I'm behind 1213 with the black gloves!

Oh, just seen results list which says I came 82nd (pleased with that!). A year ago when I started C25k I could just about run for a minute - what a brilliant programme. Best of luck to everyone starting out - you can do it!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all you lovely people on this forum :)

It was great to see so many young people - some were very speedy! I was definitely one of the oldest, a 'veteran' according to the codes next to my name..... (not sure about that!)

Couldn't be a veteran, you haven't got a beard! 😂

Great photo, well done! A distinct lack of beards though 😁 An easier section of the course going downhill..😊

Yes, I decided against a beard - definitely get too hot with one of those, although the hat was great for keeping my ears warm!

I prefer mature ! I hate being called "Veteran" . Associate with being "Old" Cars called "Old bangers" etc.

Anyway it's all relative. I may be 60 on the outside but after running I'm sure there is an 18 year old desperately trying to escape from it !!
