7 indus-tree-ous Goodgymmers paced the streets of North London, flyering for the wonderful Trees for Streets.
Sam the Conqueror laughed off Covid just a mere couple of weeks ago and got back in the saddle, racing her way to her 200th Good Deed tonight! Hero!
Also, a busy running weekend saw our Julie and Sarah tackle the Manchester Marathon, our Niamh and Dave smash the Camino Epping Forest Ultra, and our Charlie speedy-gonzales his way to his first ever half marathon at the Royal Parks. Speedsters galore! <3
On Wednesdays, we smash the pa-tree-archy
The good folk at Trees for Streets are on a mission to give London another push to become a city forest and at Goodgym Haringey we had to get involved in the party.
Heroics started the night before when Lizzie from TfS was let down by a courier but undeterred, she commandeered a hire car and traversed London town to deliver a very heavy box of leaflets to good ol' Gramps.
Tonight at HQ, both Charlie and Dave turned up looking fresh after their speedy exploits from the weekend and joined Nurj, Geraldine, Kapil and Gramps in celebrating the wonderful Sam as this was her 200th Goodgym Good Deed. We had vegan jellies and badge maths shenanigans.
We then ran a rather hilly route towards the valley at the bottom of Alexandra Palace where our efforts were to focus tonight. And before yew could say 'who put Bella in the Wych Elm' our Goodgymmers had divided into two groups: one led by Sam, the other by Nurj and Geraldine and we ran on opposite sides of the road, leafleting to our heart's content.
After about 45 minutes and 4k later, we came to a halt before the group's timekeeper had a chance to tell Gramps off for overrunning.
Selfies here, more vegan jellies there. And a nice run back to HQ. An ace eve.
Join us next week when we're visiting the Friends of Tottenham Green for more fun and games.
And while we're at it, however punnily tangentially, fuc* the patriarchy.
