I would like to thank everyone who came down to the first two meetings of the EC jogging club. The first outing was a wet and windy English day whilst for today’s jog we were blessed with sunny weather. We met outside the school and following a few stretches we were off.
We starting by heading down towards Covent Gardens and Leicester Square making are way through the crowds an onto Piccadilly. Later we passed the Royal Academy of Arts and as we entered Green Park we joined up with several other joggers. On reaching the Wellington Arch we turned back past Buckingham Palace and whilst running in front of the Palace we spotted Mini-me from Austin Powers having his pictures taken with the Beefeaters. We than ran part of the London Marathon course as we reached the Mall and went up towards Trafalgar Square. Today we veered off the Mall and through St. James’s Park and got to have a look at its variety of wildlife. On exiting the park we crossed through the National Horse Guard and on towards Westminster. For the end of the run we circled round in front of Westminster Abbey and behind the Houses of Parliament to pass Big Ben and finish on Westminster Bridge.
I hope to see more faces down there next time as it’s a great way to see London and get fit… Both students and teachers welcome.
