DAY 3 - SUNDAY 6TH AUGUST
RUNNING, SHOPPING, SUNSHINE, SOUTH DOWNS AND BBQ
Becky and Mike were entered into a 5k Fun Run in Crawley this morning so we headed off to Tilgate Park. First port of call was to pick up the free run T Shirts. Then there was an organised warm up .... and then they were off. It was a 2 lap course around the lake. You can see the lake in my Extras. So I just waited at the Start/Finish area and saw Becky and Mike come through - twice. Mike finished 6th and Becky was the 3rd lady home. The winner was their next door neighbour Ben. The three of them got together after the race and I took a photo. Also took some shots for Ben on his phone. He's a serious runner - and his job is a professional fitness coach.
Then we headed into Crawley town centre to the Decathlon shop. Decathlon were sponsors of the run and provided the free T Shirts as well as a " goody bag " which you collected from their shop after the race. Obviously meant to encourage people to spend money in their shop. Well it worked - I bought two T Shirts and a long sleeved top. Mike bought a pair of running shoes.
Then we went to a coffee shop in Crawley for a snack. I had coffee, carrot cake and a packet of crisps. Becky and Mike both had bacon, eggs etc.
Then back home so that Becky and Mike could shower and change their ( sweaty ) clothes. Then we were out again - heading for the South Downs where aren't very far away. We parked the car and walked up to the Jack and Jill windmills. I have put photos in my Extras. Also one of Becky and Mike on the Downs.
Then back home again. Mike started the BBQ and slow cooked some brisket. Becky made a brownie mix which also contained caramelised bananas and marshmallows and cooked that in a lidded pan on the BBQ. ( an experiment which was a success) We had the meat with roast pots and veg and the brownie to follow. All delicious.
Watched a bit of TV (football and athletics ) till it was time for bed.
