Tonight, was the first evening when it was dark as we left for our task, time for the trusty chest running light. Eleven of us at the meeting point tonight after losing a couple who weren't feeling well. Once everyone had arrived and the register was done (already feeling like school) it was time to hit the streets....But wait

Welcome Shauny to your first group task with us in Cardiff.

Thankfully, the rain was only mild, so we were not getting too wet, and the run was just a quick 2 km to our task at St Monica's Primary School. Once there we waited by the gate for our contact for the evening, Mr. T

No not this Mr. T, Mr. Thomas the Deputy Head. We were welcomed into the building, and we put on some fresh masks, and hand sanitiser as per the school rules. Once inside we had a brief chat with Mr. Thomas about the school whilst putting on protective gloves, as tonight we would be waxing the doors and cleaning the brass handles.

We split into groups and picked our doors, there was lots of chatting going alongside the work, but one thing was missing, some epic tunes. Mr. Thomas sorted this for us and soon we were bopping away happily. As we ran out of doors, we realised it must be time for a group photo, sweaty gloves off and wax and brasso returned, we got together first for the school photo and then for Michael's.

Back to the dark outside and time to get back to the start, stretch out those muscles and go for a social.
