Tonight we met inside Crook Log Leisure Centre. Everyone was busy catching up on the last week, discussing parkruns and welcoming our new member! As we moved outside, ready for our warm up we did a quick headcount and congratulated Emmanuel on his 50th Good Deed.

We had a group of runners and a group of walkers heading to tonights task. The runners took a slightly longer route and the walkers a more direct route. It was perfect timing as we all arrived at pretty much the same time. Upon arrival, it became clear that no-one at the task knew we were coming and there was actually no task for us to do 😕

After putting on our thinking hats we came up with a back-up plan.

We all made our way back to Crook Log where we played a fun and absolutely, in no way competitive game of Noughts and Crosses. We split into 2 teams which unintentionally happened to be boys vs girls. We renamed the noughts, angels and crosses, devils. The aim was for each runner in the team to sprint to the board first to lay their piece before the other team; whoever gets there first stands a better chance of winning. After a few clear wins from the noughts, we had a shuffle up of teams and after a few more rounds where things got a bit messy. We decided to call it a day when we saw, what looked like a bat, start dive bombing around us and that it was time for some celebratory cake. 🦇

We made our way to the indoor cafe inside the leisure centre onto some comfy sofas to enjoy the cake.

Until next time. Happy running 🏃🏻‍♀️
