Incredible numbers of repdigit reppers this week – I’m beginning to wonder if there’s a way to get these elusive tokens deliberately!? Well, I know that where there’s a will, there’s a way! Fantastic repping, everyone, brilliant turnouts and great times. Let’s try to get another sub 30 next week as club average! Keep running and repping the green and black. And if you can’t run, try volunteering πŸ’šπŸ–€Apologies if I’ve made any errors or missed any incredible feats. Have a wonderful week and remember to add to Mike’s mid-week poll! hasta la prΓ³xima semana πŸ’šπŸ–€ πŸŒ±πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸ–€β˜˜πŸ’šπŸ–€οΈπŸ€πŸ’šπŸ–€
