Christmas is Up and Running

The thing I like most about Christmas is that I don’t have to go to work. Not that I work very hard anyway. Well I do, but I find it easy so, it’s not really hard. Yup, it’s going to be one of those rambling posts. The main thing is, I can run more and my club, City of Hull AC, have runs nearly everyday. Not Christmas day, but we’re doing Parkrun anyway. I guess they’ll expect us to dress up on Christmas Day but at least the telephone box won’t be running. ๐Ÿ˜‚

While I am on the subject of parkrun we had our Christmas party on Saturday. I really enjoyed most of it. I say most, because I don’t have much recollection of the end. I was good until around 12:30, after that everything is a bit of a blur. It started out okay, but I’m afraid by around 3am it had got a teensy weensy bit messy. Oh well it’s only once a year… more or less.๐Ÿ˜‰

So, tonight is a Christmas Lights run, that’s basically a 7 mile run through town looking at Christmas lights, well some people like it ๐Ÿคท๐ŸปTomorrow morning is the 7 Hills run, about 8 miles up and down seven hills. If you remember? Itโ€™s commonly known as the sperm run, for obvious reasons. Then Thursday I am taking the Princess on the same route. A. She hasn’t run off road before and B. She doesn’t like hills much. So, it will be an interesting morning.

Well, if I don’t post again before Christmas, I hope you all have a wonderful time, whatever you are doing and at least we’ll be able to see some people this year… I hope. ๐Ÿ˜˜

    • Hi, Pamela, I think WP might have unfollowed you? It seems to do that sometimes ๐Ÿค” Anyway just seen your new book, exciting ๐Ÿ˜Š Strangely enough Iโ€™ve just started delving into romantic fiction so, Iโ€™ll take a look. It started as research for a book Iโ€™m writing and I found that I actually love it ๐Ÿ˜ŠIโ€™ll look for you on Goodreads too, as Iโ€™ve just set up an author page. Hope you have a fabulous Christmas and New Year too.

    You look mighty dapper in your suit. I hope you behaved yourself, young man. Not that youโ€™ll ever know if happened in the wee hours unless someone tells you otherwise ๐Ÿ˜‰ Iโ€™m glad you had a good time, it sounds like fun!

    How did the Christmas Lights run go? I almost like the sound of it, except Iโ€™d have to drive it (nowhere near as healthy, but far warmer). Pretty lights do make me feel more festive, I must admit. I hope the sperm run went well and that Princess managed the hilly hell well enough to not murder you at the end of it.

    Merry Christmas guys! I hope you have a great one ๐ŸŽ„ xx

    • I think I behaved, but it could be โ€˜borderlineโ€™ good behaviour ๐Ÿ˜‚
      It was a good lights run, pretty but they went a little fast ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป and had first 7 Hills the day after ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ But was good.
      Princess hurt her back a couple of days before so had to cut it short, but hey ho got out of the house๐Ÿ˜Š
      You have a great Christmas too, Caz xx
