Following the immense heat of last week, Brighton Goodgym meet on a much milder evening that even looked to threaten rain... Luckily we were spared any real down pours AND we welcomed new Brightonian Hannah! Hannah is no stranger to Goodgym having run with Slough before moving to the south coast; welcome to Brighton!

This week we were artfully covering graffiti tags that plague the Hannover part of Brighton. Cllr David had us all organised as ever, with the strategy of divide and conquer!

Enroute to the Percy Wagner buildings we dropped off Juliet and Philippa at the Phoenix Gallery to meet Simon to cover some tags behind the Pheonix Community Center.

Rosemary and Diego, not wanting to get covered in paint (wise choice, I'll be brushing it out of my hair for days!) accompanied Cllr Steph to the top of Elm Grove to help with some weeding that the council hadn't managed to get to. Bonus kudos for the both of you for the extra mileage AND hill running!

Those of us that were left roamed in 2s and 3s in the local residential streets to erase the tags we saw. Some of us were approached by local residents who cracked jokes and thanked us for our efforts.

Once we had all gathered back on The Level it was time for some dynamic stretching to help with our mobility. If anyone would like a professional description and explanation, please out this video. Its a great way to start a run and get the most out of it!
