12 Goodgymmers braved the plunging temperatures and painted the town Goodgym red (ok, black and white, actually, but you get my drift).
First stop, Kudos Central
Everybody big it up for Martha who joined us tonight for her first session and what a baptism of fire she was put through! She was gracious throughout and for that alone she deserves all the kudos.
Special mention to our very own Sarah, who was running with us in spirit on the other side of the world, whilst recovering from her heroics during the Tarawera Ultramarathon last weekend - absolute, unadulterated, 100% Rock Star!
The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Groaning
Brand new task tonight! Hurray...
It did mean running into the hilly half of the borough on this very cold night. And oh boy, did our Goodgymmers attack those hills with gusto and panache! Our 12 runners covered the 2 miles towards the New London Performing Arts Centre at a rather brisk pace and we were nicely warmed up and ready when we got there.
Sean and Stuart from NLPAC welcomed us with a fun task. We were trusted to give the windows and the shed wood panelling a lick of paint and we busy beed our way to the paintbrushes.
White paint here, black paint there, sweeping a floor here, putting Julie in a bin there, a bit of Rolling Stones here, and bit of Amy Winehouse there - it was a flurry of activity and good tunes tonight. And before you could say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, we had finished our jobs and were saying our goodbyes.
We then had a rather fun, if slightly hardcore, hill rep session on the very steep Muswell Hill Road. There were no complaints. None at all. Not even one. Not. One. ;)
A lovely night.
Please, don't forget our wonderful community mission this weekend: Come and help the kiddies at Priory parkrun achieve their running goals. What a wonderful way to spend an hour on a Sunday, eh?
