Today's quality pun kindly provided by Hannah

A lovely evening for a run! Just a shame we weren't there half an hour earlier...

Nevermind! Tonight we had a killer team of me, Stephen, Hannah, Nick and brand new to GoodGym, Holly 👏👏🥳 So great to have you along.

Tonight's task was to Melvin Hall, a great spot in Penge which is run by volunteers and provides loads of services and clubs etc to locals. Last time we went there our painting session was somewhat unsuccessful, with some particularly absorbant paint... But this time was different!

After a quick warm up in the park and a 2.5k run there, we met John who sorted us out with some better paint (quality Dulux Primer 👌) and showed us the gate to paint. We got cracking, with Hannah and Nick smashing through their side, while Holly, Stephen and I had more complex nooks and crannies to cover.

In 30 minutes we were done. A few of us downed some fruity water John had provided and we headed back to the Bridge House with a quick game of Rock, Paper, Scissors in the park on the way (lose = sprint, win (not really a win...) = wall sit).

Great job gang!
