Well done to all our Big Half runners this weekend - I assume your noticeable absence this evening was due to recovering from all that fantastic running yesterday!

Your love, lifting me flyer // Than I've ever been flyered before

Cracking dedication to the double-digit (just!) group of runners that made it out in the cold this evening to deliver flyers for the wonderful Marsha Phoenix Memorial Trust. You can read more about their fabulous work here, and buy a ticket to their charity comedy night here.

So post it up // Quench my de-flyer // And I'll be at your letterbox, forever more

We did a quick mexican-wave of warm-ups, which went exceedingly well now that everyone is getting used to the format before setting off up Lewisham Way. We split out into three groups to cover off the warren of streets around Hilly Fields, regularly reconvening at pre-agreed meeting points.

Now once, I was down-and-out-of-flyers // Disappointment, was my postest friend

Thanks to this evening's map-wielders Oliver, Michael and Michael - great working interpreting my somewhat questionable instructions and making sure no-one got lost. Thanks also to Caireen for back-marking on our way out and back, much appreciated!

But then you posted and it soon departed // And you know he never // Showed his flyer again

We soon ran out of flyers, so with plenty of time to spare I treated everyone to some reps of Hilly Fields. I set people off at 5 second intervals, within a 90 second timeframe so that everyone could pick their pace and recovery time, trading one for the other. It also meant that everyone could run out and back together, for a bit of friendly motivation along the way.

With a quick stop off at the crest of Hilly Fields to admire the twinkly view across London, we were back at Glass Mill with plenty of time to spare, and a relatively earlier dinner time than usual!

Have a great week everyone, see you all soon.

Turns out song titles make great flyer-related puns. The observant among you might remember this flyer pun from a previous run report. Song suggestions for our next flyering task will be gratefully received!
