The One With The Picnic….

The Thurstaston picnic run… the last one of the year. Normally it’s always been a bit chilly πŸ₯ΆπŸ₯ΆπŸ₯Ά but today it was rather warm πŸ₯΅πŸ₯΅ and a great turnout of 37 πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ as well as a plethora of four legged friends 🐢🐩🐩🐢 joining in for a summer walkies session . The runners set off at their usual pace but ahead of them was the dreaded Dungeon 😱😱πŸ₯Ί, steep steps, tree roots and uneven ground – the bane of many a runner. But the challenge is greater, it sorts the runners from the pooches! πŸ˜‰Humid conditions don’t help but the mighty running warriors came through and made it to the downhill winding pathways of Heswall Dales, the legs continuously stung not by nettles 🌿🌿but the famous Heswall gorse bushes, but undeterred we carried on. This run is probably the shortest distance of the summer runs, but feels the most challenging and getting to the finish back in Thurstaston is rewarding not because we’ve put a good shift in πŸ‘πŸ₯΅πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈbut afterwards we picnic, and as a group, we love a summer banquet, a variety of nibbles from chicken legs πŸ—to pies πŸ₯§ and for the healthy, tons of rabbit πŸ‡ food, all washed down with a variety of drink πŸ₯€πŸ·πŸΊπŸ₯›Even the four legged runners tucked in. Next week it’s Hilbre. If the weather favours us 🌞🌞🌞we’ll do it all again on the beach πŸ–β›±, until then…keep on running πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ.
