I did it! I wore it, and I mean I wore it so people could see it, not covered up by a hoodie And do you know what? It was okay. I felt like a couple of people were Looking At Me but I focused on running past them.
And yes, I was the same berry colour at the end of my run, but hey - that just proves I've been working, no?
So thank you to all of you who encouraged me to get out there and wear it. You were absolutely right - I earned it, so I should wear it with pride. This community is amazing - the support and generosity are outstanding.
Off to consider buying the long-sleeved fluoro yellow version now
