Just as you thought it was getting too cold out there, 11 intrepid Goodgymmers and a couple of random nude artistes spotted in the wild came out to confound expectations in Haringey.

Award Ceremony Thank You Speech

Big love and woop woops for every single one of our runners last night. It was cold, dark, dogs were angry, letterboxes almost frozen shut AND YET the lovely Goodgym Haringey lot sang through the night. Adam, Nurjehan, Charlie, Rita, Kapil, Sarah, Kandy, Cathy, Madeleine and Dave - absolute heroes!

The Naked Truth

Let's not dwell on it but also let's get it out of the way from the start: A lot of nudity, chest hair, and hairdryers were witnessed during this group run. If that floats your boat and you want more details, send questions on a postcard.

The wonderful New Tottenham Singers Choir have been hard at work practicing and honing their performance for the forthcoming festive concert on the 14th of December and we were lucky to play a little part.

We had a multitude of leaflets to hand out and our 11 goodgymmers did a stupendous job.

Sarah led the walking group down the High Road, leafleting as they went. I huffed and puffed with the runners until we arrived at St Mary's Church (where the concert will take place) and we proceeded to flyer the surrounding streets. Our runners leapfrogged each other on the doorstep, singing carols as we went along, and soon enough our walkers had joined us too. All in all, within about half an hour this crack team had managed to distribute all the leaflets we had with us.

We ran back to HQ the long way as some of our runners were yet to hit their daily mileage target and by the time we got to HQ, the walking team had reached HQ too.

Sarah kindly led us on a very lively stretching session, followed by the now seemingly customary 'roast the trainer' session -(this time it was about my running attire - it is still short weather, sorry).

After our Haringey GG High Fives, we said our goodbyes. As always, it was a great night.

Don't believe me? Come and join us next week, when we'll be visiting the Haringey Foodbank.

Also, don't forget about the Goodgym Xmas Party on the 6th December.

AND SAVE THE DATE FOR OUR GOODGYM HARINGEY CHRISTMAS SOCIAL - 18TH DECEMBER AFTER OUR LAST GROUP RUN OF THE DECADE - More details to follow

Peace!

Jingle all the way... Voices of angels, Saintly Volunteers. It's always so much fun on the Haringey sleigh.
