Was a really hot one today. 32 feeling like 38, so to beat the heat the run group decided on running to all of the children’s splash pads in town. I think we must have hit around 5 of them. The kids had the right idea today. Was amazing getting fully soaked and 10 min later feeling bone dry. We did not do a very long stint, just around 15k in total with splash breaks every 3k or so. And there were freezies after we finished! I think I am regressing back into childhood again

Good run on all fronts. Good to let the inner child out now and again 😄 (As long as it's well behaved in company!) Also, get you!😄 Not a very long run ..... 15k 😃 ..... Wasn't that long ago we could only dream of such things. Brilliant. Here's to more of those runs 👍
Haha yes this group does get creative! I really appreciated it too after working long hours through the last few weekends. Yes the 15k seemed short because we kept stopping to cool down. :). Next week’s plan is to maybe run down to Nathan Phillip’s Square downtown to take in an art show. That is around a 15k distance. Hopefully I can swing it with the workload.
Was that after one of your brewery runs? I must admit, you guys have some cracking ideas. What next? Mob-run through supermarkets? It feels I would slot right in!
Mob-run through supermarket - but only up/down and round the fridge/freezer aisles. You're right, they certainly know how to have fun while they suffer over there!
Haha no, this was just a Saturday group run. I can only imagine how it would have gone down if there was beer involved as well 🤪 Supermarket mob runs could definitely work through the frozen section!
I would need that! It’s 9am here and I’m about to do 16K and it’s already very warm. I. Love. This. Weather. 😎
What a great way to get a run in despite the heat! Regress away...sounds absolutely blissful 🙃. You have the best running group around.
Yes it really was a flash of brilliance. We got some strange looks from the grandmas when we jumped in the water with their grandkids, but the kids did not seem to care.
Only 15 km... Sounds like a great way to run in the heat.
Your running group has great ideas! Sounds like it was a lot of fun.
Awww, that sounds fab Decker, even with the breaks 15k, whew, that’s a long way!! You have my utmost respect!! Nothing wrong with bringing the inner child out now & again 😁
This is hilarious! Pictures?
I am liking this a lot, I want to do one!!
We don’t have any near me ☹️ Mind you,they’d not get used 364 days of the year 😁
