11 GoodGymers ran and walked to litter pick and Beat the Street

We were happy to see Chris back for his second GoodGym and although Joe hadn't signed up, we were pleasantly surprised to see him too (and his photo taking!).

Joel led us out on his expertly planned route to capture as many Beat Boxes as was reasonable on our run, whilst also fitting in some litter picking. We met Fay and street beating bandit Sallyann with the litter pickers on North Avenue, and started to pick many cigarette butts. We missed Ben and Bianca, but David eventually caught us up and fit straight in with the box collecting and litter picking.

Everything went a bit foggy after we turned off North Avenue, so that felt like an appropriate point to stop picking and head back, until Andy spotted a photo op with a Beat the Street sign. Rich couldn't let the evening go by without some sort of daft pose, and Erin hadn't had an opportunity for her usual eyes shut photo, so we got into position for a group photo!

So much Beat the Street chat, I apologise. But, we are currently fourth on both average and total in our category, so if we can push ourselves up at least one more place in either or both, we'll be in line to win a prize!

On a final note, I can't believe I just heard that Leanne doesn't like easter eggs?!

See you all soon,
