12 people ran 10k to organise a food order for FareShare
After last weeks ‘heatwave’ it was back to business as usual this week as a rather wet and soggy night greeted us. Not to worry though, we still had a newbie to welcome and a very warm one goes to Aaron’s mate Jeremy!
We set off to FareShare, taking in the canal towpath on our way. David did the back marking duties and Aaron the front. Once arriving at FareShare Dionne greeted us, who not only works at FS, she is also part of the GG clan. We all got a well earned drink, some getting a bit of extra sparkle, with a cup of sparkling water and then it was on with the job of sorting some food orders. Aaron and Richard stood in the vans while the rest of the group passed them all the food. The first van was a order being taken to Stoke were all the food would be distributed to various charities and schools. The group worked like a ‘well oiled machine’ going back and forth, loading food into the van. I even got Aaron picking the boxes up with a perfect deadlift technique, my Personal Training day job getting used just a little bit more.
Once done before we headed back the group were asked if anybody would like some bread and milk which was going out of date today. Richard jumped at the chance, the only down side was he had to run all the way back with it, therefore running over 5k looking like he had robbed a corner shop (hence the pun/picture). After organising us at the task Dionne also got her running shoes on to join us for the trek back to 1000 Trades.
The run back is always hard work as it is all up hill and generally into a headwind and tonight the wind didn’t disappoint again! Once back the whole group were pretty tired. Running just over 10k there was no need for a fitness session tonight!
Next week we will be out doing good again, it would be great if you could join us sign up here.
