Great fun, lots of runners dressed up! Chocolates on the finish line. Lots more runners today but I wasn't quite last to finish. My first 5k since the IC. Still slow but a PB, taking a minute and half off my last parkrun time!

Hope everyone had fun. We should be so proud of ourselves for getting out there.

Merry Christmas everyone! Now heading for the mince pies and mulled wine๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks John! Made my day! Not really keen on sharing photos of self eeekkk. I did post a pre race rather than an after the run photo, didn't want to scare everyone on the forum๐Ÿ˜‰

Merry Christmas ! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโ˜ƒ

Brilliant! Great stuuf, you look so happy! I felt quite emotional on mine, thinking of all us C25K-ers doing parkrun at the same time xx

I know what you mean! If we hadnt agreed a team run I'd have cried off the weather being as it was ! Brilliant support isnt it?

Hi Pops, yes a great day all round it seems, despite the weather!

My girlie is doing well thanks! Once a week at hospital from this week! New kidney performing really well and all going great!

Myself and our son ran this morning, both at my pace but my boy paced for me, hence I was a bit quicker........but it was really hard work ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Our daughter and my husband walked the course, both did really well on pace and covered the best distance since each have had surgery, so a brilliant family morning!

This running malarkey is just great isn't it?

Merry Christmas Pops xxxx๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป

Ah this is such good news Jacs, I am so pleased that she's doing well and that you all had a good time this morning .

Running eh ? Who'dve thought it ? Never in a million years did I think I would be running 5k on Christmas Eve , or any other day come to think of it :-)

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas xxx
