Hi all!

It's a beautiful city and it's even prettier when you're running!

Everyone's welcome in our group - general pace is about 10,5k/hour. Some of us run for an hour, some are training for ultra runs. Fear not: we start in the Vondelpark so you won't get lost. And it means you can build up your speed/fitness level if needed. So if you're worried you can't keep up: just come around and give it a go. Also, I'll try and get the 'Broom Sweeping' back in order ;-)

Where we meet: the Eye Film Museum isn't at Vondelpark 3 anymore, but it's where we meet (Vondelpark entrance Vondelkerk is thus close, you can already see us from there.)

Where we go: As we start in the Vondelpark, you can choose to do the shortest lap: 3.3km. The group's first lap will quite often be Vondelpark-Rembrandtpark-Vondelpark = 10k max. Depending on who's attending, we'll do one or two more laps after that, or a 800 meter extension, or you just join the ultra runners...

At some point, we might start running towards Nieuwe Meer again, or Schellingwoude.

If you'd like to stay for a drink afterwards (at the Blauwe Theehuis), bring some coins, as it's not included :)

See you then and there!

Sheila

PS We're looking for someone to host the Tuesday group.

    Ran with Gad and Martin, through the city - towards Nieuwe Meer, past the Arsenal, Olympic St, doing some monkey bars on the way... Really nice! Av. pace 5:21 min/km. Lovely sunny coffee afterwards.
