TEA HQ UN-RUNNING CLUB.

Way back when, Chief Awesome, Timna {who heads up Team Awesome} decided that she was going to run the Disneyland half marathon. Having little to no experience of long-distance running meant that she’d have to get practising. Thus ensued a series of sporadic running sessions with our marathon runner supremo, Steven {Chief Cheerleader for Weights and Measures}.

POORLY MADE SANTA OUTFITS AT THE READY.

The half marathon came and went, and with it the running bug that had {sort of} taken hold at Tea HQ disappeared. Dark days and chilly nights reigned supreme in wintry Manchester, so it’s no surprise that our two man running club ceased all operations.

But before you could say “horrendously-unfit-and-incapable-of-running-very-far-at-all”, Timna caught the novelty running bug again and convinced the majority of us to sign up to the annual Santa dash.

So it began, running club became a Tea HQ-wide phenomenon, taking place regularly enough to get us mildly prepared for the ever-approaching dash. The fastest runners were expected to complete the 5k dash in around 13 minutes - of course, we got nowhere near that - but dashed we did. Even better, the running club has endured an irregular, but awesome existence ever since.

Riding high on good intentions? Come and join the running club every Thursday at 5:30pm, setting off from Tea HQ!
