We logged onto Zoom for one last time this morning, shortly after the amazing summer storm earlier on. Graham and James both got caught in it, and Caroline (sensibly) held off before going out for her run. It was lovely to catch up with our Goodgym regulars as they popped in and out of the conversation whilst cracking on with morning routines, or welcoming guests to their homes. We chatted a bit about upcoming races (including the looming possibility of London Marathon and Oxford Half Marathon going ahead), the opening of pubs and coffee shops next week (a mix of excitement and concern for the situation, of course) and the news about parkrun returning in New Zealand (check this podcast episode for more info:

Thank you for joining us for our regular catch ups over the past few months, it has been a lovely way to stay connected during these trying times. All being well, we certainly hope to meet up face-to-face for Saturday Morning Coffee sooner rather than later!

(PS- note that John, Caroline and Trainer Simon are all wearing Lakeland Trails 2018 t-shirts after our trip to the Coniston races!)
