Our first Wednesday group run of 2020 brought some new faces to GoodGym – Mary, Stephanie, Lucy, Gemma. welcome to you all - and also Peggy the dog!

We jogged over to Marston, with a short paws outside the Up In Arms Pub to do some star jumps, but not fur long as we had to get to OXSRAD. Once there we met Mark, who is having a bit of a ruff time as he is injured at the moment. A big thank you also to Mark’s daughter, Emily Lygo who works at OXSRAD and didn’t mind us collaring her to hound her with questions!

We split into groups and cleaned the place from top to tail! We cleaned equip-mutt in the gym, crash mats in the sensory room, tables and chairs in the reception area, scrubbed down some wheelchairs and cleaned the kitchen. A glimpse into the aerial silks room had us grinning from ear terrier.

On the way back we went daschund through the streets of Oxford, doing some fartlek between lamp posts (but not getting too com-pet-itive) and some squat jumps (with Gloria as the winner).

Passers by might have thought we were barking mad! We also had a large enough group to all speak to somebody we have never spoken to before, which meant the run flew by and we barely noticed that it was raining cats and dogs.

That’s enough of this shaggy dog *story, I hope you all *(labr)adored this session as much as I did!

-- Footnote, Peggy noticed her owner Stu has now got 16 Good Deeds!! which means he can join up to TASKFORCE (as can any runner who has done 10 or more good deeds!). She hounded him in the pub to promise to do this ASAP!! <3 <3
