It was great to see you all tonight with Colchester traffic problems making life hard. We welcomed Mark for his first run and it was brilliant to see him slot into the action.

We started with the news of our starter session, January challenge updates and GG race team news. Keep logging your training and doing good!

The misty night meant an atmospheric run through the town centre to Plum Hall were the ever enthusiastic Rebecca met us. We scooped and swept 8 bags of leaves and litter away from vital paths to help the mobility of the residents. Smashing.

The exercise took advantage of popular running location Abbey Fields and the well placed lampposts. Sprint and recover between lampposts was the order and the troops responded.

An impressive effort and distance achieved tonight proves that not to mention a well executed task.

Next week we go to our friends at the foodbank to clean the warehouse.

Respect my body because many people are not lucky enough to have that privilage. Solution Focussed social worker. Not a real Essex man!
