The nights are getting longer, the weather is getting colder, the awesome Haringey Goodgymmers are getting stronger. Boom!
13 a-mazing Goodgymmers congregated at HQ in the midst of the post-London Marathon ballot result ennui. We didn't let the rejection get us down and instead we used it to spur us on during our run tonight. Boom indeed!
We took the scenic route to the Haringey Foodbank at the Selby Centre through Tottenham Cemetery. Once at the foodbank, Femi welcomed us with a plethora of tasks. Some us sorted out tea boxes by sell-by dates; some of us prepped documents for some much well-needed shredding; and the rest got stuck into some good ol' school shelving.
These Goodgymmers were On. It. Tonight! They made really quick work of those tasks and they didn't even want to stop. I had to physically move some of them so we could get some group shots! Even then some of them were suspiciously slow...
Unexpected Cake In The Foodbank Area
... But that was because they had done some impressive detective work and arranged some birthday cake for their shoddy trainer because they are awesome. He was very touched, if a bit sweary. Thanks.
We then floated back to HQ on the promise of cake. Good times!
