My heart willow on
26 runners ran 3.8km to help the York Archeological Trust in York.

26 excellent GoodGymmers met on a pleasant Monday evening for this evening's group run.
👋🏼 We gave a huge welcome to Martin on his first GoodGym task.
🙌🏼 And if that wasn't enough, we had mega kudos to give to lots of runners who ran excellent races in both Kielder and Dalby Forest. *What a week! *
To the task
We were met at Willow House Garden by Rachel and her colleague who helpfully provided tools and bags.
"Get rid of everything"
🌿That was the instruction and we didn't need telling twice. There was some enthusiastic pruning (hacking?!), sawing, sweeping and even a bit of topiary! In half an hour, the area looked well-shorn and Rachel was very happy with the result.
📸 After a quick group photo, we did some game-based fitness, using the classic Rock, Paper, Scissors and Stuck in the Mud. Before we knew it, the walking and running groups were ready to head back for a cool down and stretch.
👏🏼 Back at base, a huge thank you was given to Michal for everything he's done as Area Activator, including through a beautiful card created by David. Further thank yous and catching up happened at the pub before we said our farewells and went our separate ways.
Thank you everyone for making my first group run as AA such a good one 👌🏼
