Kieron and some of the Post-16 students have set up a lunch time running club at Post-16 to help with our fitness and wellbeing. As we noticed the torrential rain we stared at each other with looks of doubt but the mood was positive and everyone was still keen to go. We headed out and within seconds forgot about the rain as we ran as a group laughing, chatting and supporting each other. Those more experienced runners ran ahead to a set point then did ‘run backs’ so we were always running as a group and encouraging each other. We returned to Post-16 to applause and cheering and Chrissie pouring out water to quench our thirst.
We all covered 1.5 miles and those that did ‘run backs’ covered about 2 miles.
A fab first run. Well done everyone!
