Eight brilliant people gathered in Brent for another top GoodGym session! This week we headed to Abbey Community Centre to distribute leaflets on their upcoming testicular cancer event as well as their usual event update flyer.

As expected the rain cleared for our evening's session. Once we had all gathered we headed out to warm up and go through the intro. We welcomed Lee who joined us for his first ever run and we talked about the Big Six (remember you don't have to be part of the Race Team to take part!) and the GG Games!

With that done we warmed up and then headed on to Abbey. We smashed out the 3.5km journey in 25 mins and at the centre met Simone who handed over two big stacks of leaflets. We had a drink of water to refresh and then we were on our way. We headed over to Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate (aka Rowley Way) and split into two teams. One team took the higher side and worked there way all the way up to the upper most part before swapping with the other team and coming down. It was unecessarily complicated but it totally worked! Hurrah!

In the mean time Liz led a second team to the far end of the estate and worked their way at much greater speed (due to fewer levels) and we met in the middle.

A great session and fantastic work to get all the leaflets delivered! With that done we headed off back to base taking a different route through West Hampstead.

Cheers, Pritesh
