Our last event of the January Challenge and what a fantastic turnout of Goodgymers supporting Watermead parkrun, with Dave taking on the top spot once again and doing a grand job, mentioning what we do, a few people asked me at the end about joining and one had been to the running show and met GoodGym Birmingham and Solihull.

Jimmy Riley battles on for his 300km crown by running to Watermead aswel as getting a sub 20! Unbelievable running I think there is much more to come from Jimmy.

Running legend Ricky Aggarwal celebrated his 100th parkrun, getting pics with many Goodgymmers, such an inspiring runner in our community. Mel took on as many parkrun roles as humanly possible, a real boost to see familiar faces around the course, thanks for the support all, you helped me reach a pb!

We also had Jimmy M at Braunstone and Huw at Bosworth, weldone all I had a great time at Watermead and have had a super filled January!
