What a scorcher! For the latest GoodGym run we it was a glorious day, with not a cloud in the sky.

This week’s task was to help the Bristol Pound provide more information to the shops that accept the Bristol Pound. This meant taking a load of envelopes full of information dropping them off at shops in Stokes Croft and up the Gloucester Road.

We met at Roll for the Soul as usual at 11am and started by completing the packing of the letters and sorting them into the different areas of Bristol. We ran out through Stokes Croft, stopping at the Bear Pit for a pretty special warm up, joined by some of the colourful residents!

We then ran up the length of Gloucester Road, dropping off the information packs at the shops on the way, running in bursts as we went, dodging the crowds and trying to resist all of the tasty food. After we completed the drop offs we upped the pace to head back to Roll for the Soul. Great work all round!
