Perhaps you could share them with Miss UNM 🎄🎅

May I wish you and your daughter a very happy Christmas and a happy running 2019.

She’ll be in trouble if she eats the swans - only the queen is allowed to do that ! Maybe you could start a bird sanctuary 😄

Personally I’d tell my true love to stop wasting time and money on shopping for useless gifts and come and be my running buddy instead ! Excellent work, AlMorr ⭐️😄

To be honest with you BCK I wasn't really all that original with that post regarding the 12K's of Christmas, perhaps the stats at the end of the song are the most interesting part, 78 kilometers she ran altogether and got 364 gifts.

Last Christmas (not the song by Wham ) the Scottish Government made out several questions for Primary School children to do with a Christmas theme over the Xmas holidays, one of the questions was "how many gifts were given to my truelove in the song ''The Twelve days of Christmas?" "' I worked the answer out and got the correct answer the third time, hence the 364. I just thought for a little fun to make it the 12 K's of Christmas. If you have any spare time you can add in some other gifts that a runners true love might give to the tune 🎶🎵 of The 12 days of Christmas. 😊 🏃 🎶🎵

Interesting idea. You could run quite a long way while singing that from end to end 😁

Never guess what, that song "Keep on Running" by The Spencer Davis Group " which I requested to be on Jancanrun's birthday songs Spotify list has just been played on The radio station" The Scottish Sun s Greatest hits." if you have Android or Spotify download that list and run to them, all the songs are great.
