Little Bo Peep found her sweep
9 runners ran 7.0km to help the Colchester Borough Homes in Colchester.

It is the morning after the night before. And it feels good to know we made another leafy path safe...who knows how many falls we have prevented in our three years!?
The nine of us braved the cold, or embraced it like Alex, to run a fabulous 7 km and make John Lampon Court safe for residents. The steep entrance path and front garden paths are now visible and much less slippery! Mission accomplished.
The wonderful Rebecca of Colchester Borough Homes zoomed from her spin class to meet us at the homes and her enthusiasm is always inspiring.
After the successful sweep we ran back to Leisure World via East Hill and a new location I have named lunge lump (a car park slope on which lunge walking is amazing) for Emma's favourite exercise.
We continued our great workout with a Tabata on the outside gym - 30 seconds hard effort and 10 seconds rest before an indoor stretch and debrief. Marvelous!
S - sweeping success W - we run, walk and work hard E - Everyone is welcome E - exciting times ahead with Christmas carols on the cards P - possibly the best use of energy ever invented - running for multiple reasons
One last shout out to Vanessa - our latest Taskforce recruit!
