Am I the only one?

Since downloading this app and completing w5r3 I'm starting to smile when the reminder pops up on my phone that it's run day. Am I alone with this phenomenon?!

Nope. You have caught the running bug we all suffer with!

Well done! Yup, you've got the bug, and the only cure I'm afraid is more running :P

Congratulations on W5R3, that's a very significant run, I remember mine, and my grin lasted for days :)

All the best, Neil

Nope..I get a buzz every single time, before I run. The night before..it still feels like Christmas Eve.. flutterbys in my tummy and a sense of wonderful things to come.. and this is nearly three years on :)

You are hooked.. and it is amazing:)

Very well done on the run... move on now to the lovely longer runs:)

I'd get a buzz if I ever got a notification! Seems they don't work on Android...

they do. all you have to do is go into settings and disable do not disturb or schedule times later on in the day.

Thanks. So I have DND on between 2300 and 0630. Are you saying the notifications come during those times?

you could also disable DND and put your phone onto silent mode, not flight mode

Not alone Leggy_lass, I have now started to feel disappointed when it's not a run day πŸ™‚, it's addictive πŸ˜€.
