Han(d)over the paint!
8 GoodGymers made their way 2.0km to help the Hanover & Elm Grove Ward in Brighton.
- Tuesday, 19th of September 2023
This week we ran to Hanover and Elm Grove to help keep the streets clean ✨️ Weeding and painting were the order of the day, with the team splitting up to conquer multiple tasks.
Jane and Georgia got to work clearing the pavement alongside a church, while Stefania and Ben tackled the ever prolific bindweed in the flower beds. Meanwhile, Juliet and Sarah got to work painting over graffiti tags, Sarah having made the smart move of wearing her painting clothes. Some of us had less foresight, and now have fun new patterns on our trainers... 🙄
After reconvening (with a little help from Michael who managed to join us post commute) we headed to The Level for a fun speed workout! We worked on accelerating the pace and building endurance by running progressively faster laps with no breaks 💪 We also plotted the GG Brighton Christmas Party, and learned the importance of standing on one leg while we brush our teeth 😁
Thanks everyone for a great session, and look forward to seeing you next time.
