It's hard to believe the warm temperatures we are having end of September but it provided for a lovely evening to have a Goodgym Monday session.

We had some early arrivals who managed to littter pick around the station prior to the start! Well done! Also big welcome to Ele to Hainault sessions!

Once we all arrived, we made our way to the rec grounds collecting litter on the way. We were treated to wonderful sunset skies - amazing to have all this nature just a few mins away from the station meeting point!

Chatting and litter picking, we made our way to wonderful Fairlop Waters lake where we divided into joggers and walkers. As the night started to draw in we got our lights out, making our jog and walk safe. The walkers Linda and Helen cut their session a bit short and headed out whilst joggers Ele, Julia and James completed the second loop around the lake and made their way back. The bonus was Ele catching the tube with seconds to spare!

A lovely session, lovely company and lovely return to running in the dark, which is just so special!
