Ain't Noah Stopping Us Now
11 runners ran 7.1km to help the Ipswich Soup Kitchen in Ipswich.
- Monday, 18th of November 2019
- Led by Ian Duggan
Pre run celebrations all round - Kerry's birthday and congratulations to several Goodgymers who ran the Hadleigh 10 mile race on Sunday - lots of PBs and a Suffolk County medal winner - Well done Keith, Nick, Robin, Kerry and Daniela (who was absent tonight but was mentioned due to absolutely smashing a new PB!)
Also a warm welcome on a chilly night to Richard who was a Goodgym debutant tonight.
The task was a little different tonight in that helping the volunteers at the Ipswich Soup Kitchen meant we had time for a pretty lengthy run prior to the task.
We took a long loop incorporating some hill repeats before coming back onto the Waterfront where we split into 3 teams for interval relays in the shadow of a giant replica of Noah's Ark moored alongside the quay. Had I known beforehand the plan could have been splitting the group into twos instead of threes!.
Great teamwork and effort from everyone before we completed the next section of our run to meet up with the Soup Kitchen volunteers and help distribute our own donations alongside the hot drinks, soup and sandwiches.
The final leg of tonight's run back to base brought the distance total to 4.50 miles + the hill repeats & intervals. Top work gang!
