Hey You Guys

I have wanted a Goonies medal in my collection for quite some time. I saw one a couple of years ago (before I found Medal Mad). It was from a virtual run company in the U.S.A, which meant that the shipping costs were expensive and so I didn't go for it. I've been on the look out for one ever since.

I was thrilled when Medal Mad announced that they were releasing one and even more excited when they revealed it, as it's a cracker of a medal.

The Goonies is one of my favourite childhood films and so I decided to introduce it to my children this half term in preparation for completing this run. Unfortunately, they didn't take much notice of it but I still got to sit down and watch it. My two children are still very much into cartoons or animated films, so I'll leave it a little longer and try again.

I managed an 8 mile run as evidence for this challenge, my furthest run so far in 2018. I was hoping to complete 10 miles but it was so cold along the seafront in Lee-on-the-Solent that morning, that I cut my run short and headed home for a hot shower instead. I'm a fan of winter running but I just did not warm up at all during this particular run.

I received my medal in the post this week and the pictures just don't do it justice. I've come to realise this with all of the Medal Mad medals I've received so far. They are such good quality and the designs are fantastic. If you're waiting for yours in the post, you're in for a treat when it arrives.
