Just in the Nick(ers!!!) of time
9 runners ran 6.0km to help the Signpost Stockport for Carers in Stockport.
- Tuesday, 6th of August 2019
- Led by Lisa Hamilton
Last night 9 wonderful runners ran 6km to help sand the railings and clean the area for the signpost centre, the centre is used by various careers and people being cared for a daily basis, they hold many activities, as well as help and advice.
It was great to be back, after a week in the sunshine it was great to breeze back to Stockport and reunite with the goodgym crew.
Last night I got to take it easy, which is always good after a holiday! As the lovely Kate from Trafford was here to lead the session. Trafford Goodgym is launching on the 21st of this month, the sessions will be held on a Wednesday and so here in the Northwest we can get 2 sessions in per week now if we like! How cool is that. A few of us are going over to the launch, the more the merrier, so come join in, i have heard its great first task they have planned.
Anyway, back to the task we got up to last night! We ran a hilly 3km to our destination, when we got there we split into 2 groups, 1 half litter picking ( a few random items were found as per usual, this week some posh black knickers were found) the other with the ask of sanding and scrubbing the railings, this time with wire brushes. After 5 minutes the teams swapped tasks, and some light weeding and sweeping was added to the list, after the next 5 minutes team 1 had a fitness session, then another 5 minutes later team 2 got to do the same.
It was lovely session to come home too, it was great to meet Bernard and Joanne, well done on running up that hill! And being part of the team that didn’t moan about sanding the rails…..Jo, was the toffee crisp still in the fridge??
A huge WELL DONE to Kate for leading the session and doing a great job of it, very excited at the launch of Trafford.
Also while talking about celebrations, don’t forget its our 1st birthday very soon, ill be sending out messages about what we have planned later this week, how time flys when your having fun!
Its good to be back people, see you next week when we have a much shorter run planned, running to St Matthews church in Edgeley, with the wonderful Pam, which means brews and treats will be involved!
Have a great week running, Lisa
