Light nights in Lambeth town - it's Tuesday's Group run in Spring time !!
10 runners gathered at Papa's, our base in Brixton, for tonight's task and we were greeted with families and their children playing in the playground! Now that it is still light out it has a completely different feel heading out to evening tasks so we are looking forward to slightly higher temperatures to go with it.
Before the warm up we found out that tonight's group had quite eclectic tastes in cuisine with favourites including East Asian fare from Thailand, Korea & Japan, South Asian from India and environs, African from Ethiopia/Eritrea (an AA fave), Middle Eastern - Kurdish and European in the form of Italian. Sorry France you weren't invited....
It is a short run down to the Grantham Road surgery to meet Jonathan so we arrived early but luckily Maya had invited Liz a newbie GGer who happens to be a physical trainer. 8 agonising minutes later we were questioning our life choices but were certainly a bit fitter after calisthenics in the Car Park! (Thanks Liz!)
Jonathan took us round to Swan Mews where we were greeted by several huge platers and the task was to empty one of its' soil into a one tonne bag (filled + a wheelbarrow extra for good measure) and break apart an older planter to be recycled (challenge gleefully accepted with no tools - and a decent job done). Check out the pics and please note that Shauna did actually have a bit of help ;0)
Back to Papa's with us then and warm down time which saw a couple of local children also join in the fun!
Thanks to all!!
