*Wow!! What a brilliant night at Cosmeston Relays...
What a difference a year makes...From 2018 with just 3 GoodGym teams to 2019 with a huge 7 GoodGym teams and 22 runners. We have progressed from a pile of bags under a tree at last year's event to a gazebo (Thanks Mikey), picnic blankets and a big GoodGym flag last night.
With just Mat left to bring home the final GoodGym Team still to finish, the prosecco was poured ready for a huge toast and cheer. Mat crossed the line to the best support from all 21 other runners and a cup of prosecco was thrust into his hand for the celebrations to begin. What followed was a yummy picnic, teams trying to get the best jumping photo of their team and of course more prosecco!
Thanks to everyone who signed up, took part and contributed to the picnic, to Marie, Ella and (eventually) Tom for being great supporters, to those who provided cool bags/boxes for our picnic food (special thanks to Ellen and Sophie for helping lay out and clear away the food) and those who gave lifts to others so we could all get to Cosmeston in good time - only Emily caused us concern with her sat nav taking her to the wrong location but she made it to the start pen.. phew! What a great team! We may not have won any medals but I think we were definitely winners, enjoying our social picnic and prosecco and we were the last team standing finally leaving the park at 10pm. Some keen social beans carried on the celebrations into the night heading to the pub... wonder if they have sore heads today??
I'm sure we are all looking forward to the 2020 Cosmeston Relays already!
