12 runners ran 7 k, delivered community magazines in Beacon Heath and smashed a core session. Fantastic effort team!

A very warm welcome to Grace who joined us for the first time. You smashed the run and the task and we would love to have you along again! Lets give her a cheer!

We had lots of fun at the warm up outside the Phoenix, trying to remember different numbers linked to different movements and we were all very surprised how mild the evening was! Spring is truly on its way, yay!

Ready to run we set off towards the task location, Beacon Heath. We had a very rare flat run route this week, something that hardly ever happens in Exeter! This was also very lucky for me as my legs were totally shot after running the Grizzly last Sunday.. In fact my legs were so bad I had to become middle marker, whilst our new run leader, Pete, run in front. Thank you so much! Also a big thank you to our lovely back marker Anna who made sure no-one got left behind.

We arrived in a big happy bunch of red faces and red t-shirts to our task locations and were welcomed by Amy, the community worker for the area. She handed out the Community magazines, in which ideas and information about local events are shared, and we set off delivering, covering a big area in no time at all! I think the high light of the delivery round was the very sweet kitten following us around! Super cute! A big cheer our to our very own Strava star Vicky who carried out some extra running and hill reps during the delivery round! Great stuff!

On the return run we stopped at Princess Hay for a core session and smashed 10 different core exercises for 30 seconds each. Amazing work guys! A strong core is so important to your running, it keeps you in the right running position even when you are getting tired at the end of your runs.

Back at the Pheonix we carried out some important stretches and finished off with some refreshments and chats in the bar. A perfect ending to a perfect group run and as always I left feeling filled of hope and happiness, with a big smile on my face. I hope you all did too! It is really amazing what a fantastic feeling it is to have run and carried out a good deed together!

Next week I am away on holiday and I will miss you loads! Pete will lead the group run instead and you will go back to St Davids Church for some more painting! Yay! More details can be found here. Rumour has it there are some big birthdays next week as well so I hope you guys celebrate a bit!
