So as we approach the end of the year it’s always great to get a festive task and we can always rely on The Artful Hub and Eva as we have such great chemis-tree!
With a couple of members running a bit late today I set Meera, Jean, Kam and Gauri off to find the unit we were working in. I thought
Yule be fine
But I was wrong…
A few phone calls later and we all had success! Sandy, Jen and I arrived just as Team A found the unit.
Eva gave us the task brief and like the little elves we are we got to work.
Lauren and Jen were feeling pine so they took on the Christmas tree challenge.
The rest of the team took to dressing the tables with ornaments… less is more sometimes (I can still see Meera’s disapproval as we pranced around with little trinkets!).
It’s good to treat yo’elf (I know they are getting worse aren’t they!) but wait there’s myrrh!
After doing a fabulous job even if we say so our-elves! We did a mini fitness session which I don’t think impressed anyone but me… ho ho well.
With enough time to rock around the Christmas tree and get a lovely treat from Eva we headed back to our meet up point.
Next week will be our last group run of 2022! So let’s make it a night to remember… wear your Santa hats and get ready to run 5km at Upton Court Park.

Having only done short distances for a while now, a few members asked if we could run a bit more! More running! Of course… da doo run run, da doo run run…
So tonight’s session was one of two halves. The first half was to knock out a 5km run (or 2km for those who preferred it) then onto a litter pick.
A firm favorite meet up point for a session like this has always been Upton Court Park.
Did you know?
Upton Court Park used to be farm land and was acquired by Slough Council in the 1930’s
Warming up ... sounds like a bit of a stretch to me
We started off with some running drills to warm everyone up then split into our two groups.
We sent the 5k team off first whilst the 2k’ers did some bench push ups. Once all run and dusted Gauri and Meera set off to catch up with Ninja Pam!
I managed to catch up with the 5k crew just as they turned at the Harvestor (I’m sure they went for a sneaky without me!).
Huge well done to the team for getting in more km than we usually do. Pam, Gauri and Meera did 3km, rest of team did 5km whilst Ricky went the extra mile and got 6km!
We then cracked on with a litter pick of the car park, managing a nice 5 bags of rubbish before heading off for the warmth of home!

Tonight’s task was an exciting upcycling task!! A fellow do-gooder Tirza from Slough Anti Litter Group has been hard at work not only getting teams around Slough litter picking but also getting the town to think about recycling, costs and renewing and fixing old items.
One of her initiatives is to upcycle old clothes.
So we took this opportunity to meet with her at The Centre (thank you Everyone Active for the loan of the indoor space) to upcycle some of our running clothes.
We met at Salt hill park and after the usual task brief and warm up we headed the 1km (or maybe a tad more!) to the Farnham Rd.
Never tell a woman she can’t purse-shoe her dreams
We were glad tonight task wasn’t a Dior to Dior leaflet drop or an outdoor task where our jumpers would of got blown away - that would’ve been a cardi-gone! Being indoors on nights like these are just pure bliss!
Drum roll please
Ricky turned up.. yes you read that correctly, Ricky turned up! Was great to see him… he said wanted to get to 100 before Meera hahah!
So our upcycle was to label our T Shirts with our current good deeds numbers (or nearest number!)
Sutyee is 363 whilst I am 636! What a play on numbers
Sandy was going for gold with 184 and Ricky was forward thinking of 100!
Jean was 91! Though she didn’t like that number
Thank you Abdulaziz for being our photographer
Great efforts all round!
Next week we will be meeting at Upton Court park for a 5k run (or shorter distance of 2km also available!) plus a litter pick.
