I hope you are all feeling OK about things, and thinking about how you can possibly make the best of this strange new world we are living in. If you are struggling with self-isolation, or any of the problems associated with the changes being made to our lives, please do have a look at HU's new Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation community here:
This is a very special Friday, because it is the first VIRTUAL POM POM post!!!!
Today I simply ask that we give a pom pom cheer to all of us! 😃
I am currently signed up to run the postponed Brighton Marathon in September, but in the meantime I am dreaming about running the marathon by myself - my vBrighton Marathon!!! I got on Strava today and drew up a special version of the route that starts and finishes down at my end of town, and I'm SO looking forward to running it 😊😊😊 Of course, as people who follow me on Strava may have seen, this will not happen any time soon as I currently have a problem with my hip and am not running far. But I'm getting there!
🤩 What runs are you planning?
I hope, anyway, that all of us who are able will be allowed to continue running outside (while taking all precautions of course). And if you too have a virtual race planned, remember that we now have some extra-specially fabulous VIRTUAL BADGES available to win, as explained in this post:
And when you've run your virtual race, please be sure to come here and post about it - we want to know all about it!!!!
But anyway, people, for today LET'S RAISE THOSE VPOM POMS TO THE SKY and give a humongous shout-out to all the runners everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!
