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!

    Pain in hip after Wednesday run has almost disappeared completely, so I'm fairly certain I'll be fit tomorrow morning. Might need to look into new shoes...

      Make sure you bring your coat looks like it might be a little cold!

      Bad idea, to go back to bed after breakfast 'since I have another 60 minutes to snooze before going to the Vondelpark'. Zzzzzzz....

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
