26 Beginner Note 26 Oct 2014


Dear Beginners,

This week we will run to Big Ben – our first destination run!  Please bring your Oyster cards.  After the run we will be taking the tube from Westminster to Swiss Cottage (if you are attending the coffee at Meg’s house) or St. John’s Wood. This is one of the favorite runs for the whole group, and one we tend to do time and time again, so now you will be able to say you did it!

Please reply to this email and let us know if you will be attending the coffee after the run this week.  The address is 57 Elsworthy Road.  The coffee will probably start around 10:00.  We will have a few ladies from the WRW group join us.  They will be providing us with some details about the half marathon.  Hopefully you all received the email earlier this week from WRW with information on the travel/logistics for the half marathon.  If not, please let us know asap and we will pass the email along to you.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday,


Meg and Vicky

It’s here!  Our first destination run – to Big Ben!

Hello ladies. 

That was a wonderful run on Thursday.  You made the 4 minute running intervals look easy.  Next week we are up to 5 minute running intervals and will be running a total of 28 minutes!  We will be running into Regent’s Park and then to Marylebone. 

If you have not sent me your photo, please send it this week.  Also, please mark your calendars for coffee/treats at my house the morning of October 30th.

We are so proud of you all!

12 Beginner Note 12 Oct 2014


Hello Beginners!  Congrats on another great week.  You all looked so strong Thursday running several 3 minute intervals.  Next week we will start 4 minute running intervals and then by the end of the month we will be running/walking to Big Ben!

A few reminders and dates for you…

If you have not already done so, please email me a photo of you.  It does not have to be anything fancy.  A selfie will be just fine 🙂

Vicky and I would love for you all to join us on Oct 30 after our group run for a coffee at my house.  Details to follow but please mark your calendars.

You will be receiving an email in the next week or so from WRW with some preliminary details about making travel plans for the half marathon.  There is no need to book anything at this time.  Jane Novak and Chris Roberts (organizers of the half marathon) will be at our coffee on the 30th to answer any questions you may have.

Please remember if you can’t run with the group on Tuesdays and Thursdays to run on your own.  It is important to get in the two runs per week at this point.

We look forward to seeing you next Thursday!

Hello Beginners!

Congrats on another great week.  Vicky and I are so proud of all of you.  You are working so hard and doing so well.  We love to watch your distances and minutes increase each week. 

As we discussed on Thursday, although Tuesday is a holiday for ASL, several of you expressed interest in running as a group that morning.  There might also be a group running Tuesday afternoon.  Just follow the same plan we did last Thursday. 

If you are running in old sneakers, now might be the time to buy a new pair of running shoes.  Runners Need, which has several stores throughout London, is a good place to start your search.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us.  We will see you Thursday am!


Meg and Vicky
