Beginners Week 14: 7 Dec 2015

Hello ladies.  We had discussed possibly doing an early run this Thursday am to see the london lights.  This week’s run will consist of two 25 minute running segments (with five minute walk before, between and after).  To save a little time at this early hour, we thought we would skip the five minute walk at the start (so please come warmed up and ready to go).  Please reply to Meg and let me know if you would prefer to do the 6 am run or the normal run on thursday at 8:20 am.  We will do the 8:20 am run for sure and might add on the 6 am lights run if there are enough runners interested.

We are SOOOOOO proud of all of you!

Meg, Amy, Vicky, Stacey and Lesley
