Runner, volunteer, comms person... likes to get lost
With the rain holding off, it was all systems go at GoodGym Wandsworth last night - and it was brilliant to welcome Octavia to the group for her first run - give her a cheer!
We started off with a warm up after which we discussed our favourite things about autumn - hot soups, especially pumpkin, warm pubs but still be able to enjoy the pub garden, and open fires - what a lot to look forward to!
We took a short run down to the locally known Banana Park, where we did some flying thirties, looking at different technical points for each sprint. Don't forget that elusive pocket to socket!
Then it was over to Waste Not Want Not, a charity which saves food from being wasted and feeds the local community, where we sorted through donations, did some composting, and even created some beautiful displays ready for an event they're putting on. Great work, even though we could all smell tomato juice all the way back to base....
All that was left was a short run up the hill to the BAC and some stretches. Next week we have a lovely task helping out an independent arts and theatre charity, you can sign up here. Hope to see you then! Until next week, happy running everyone.
We're back to Waste Not Want Not tonight to help them sort out donations and the café area ahead of an event they're putting on.
This charity stops food being unnecessarily thrown away and instead it is used to support the local community.
We'll also have a little fitness session as part of the run - don't forget that we don't have anywhere to store bags.
