Happy Birthday GG Exeter!

It seems like yesterday we launched the GoodGym in Exeter. We had 61 people coming along to the very first group run and it sure was a night to remember. You take a look at the first run report here

Since then we've completed 727 good deeds and we've had the best of times getting fit whilst doing good!

We've run in glorious sun sets, in torrential rain, we've got lost and found some stunning short-cuts across our city, we've met some very interesting people and made new friends, we've learned a lot about "what is a weed", improved our painting skills and we all know where to find litter hidden away.. Most of all we have created a very strong community. Even during the very difficult lockdown months we managed to keep our group going strong, we were aways there for each other and ready to help out in the wider community whenever it was needed!

You have been a big part of this. THANK YOU for always spreading such positive vibes in our group!

Due to Covid, holidays and quarantining we sadly could not meet up in person to celebrate our area this week, but it was lovely to have a little virtual chat and a toast in the WhatsApp group! We had some great pictures coming in with some brilliant messages, like Lucy R's

Happy Birthday and keep being a Spaniel!

Jo and Craig celebrated by going running. Craig even beat his 10 k PB with 10 minutes!!! AMAZING!!!

Happy Birthday GG Exeter. Smashed a PB 10 k tonight just for you. Never would have done it if I wasn't part of such an awesome group.

Apart from sharing birthday messages it has also been a busy week in terms of making plans for the future! We got some great stuff coming up and I can't wait to see you all very soon. If we got this far in a year, despite a pandemic, who knows how far the next year can take us!
