The goodgym, the bad and the (p)ugly
8 GoodGymers made their way 5.2km to have an amazing time in Colchester.
- Saturday, 25th of June 2022
What happened yesterday morning? Parkrun usually sets Ella and I up for a good Saturday. A nice little buzz, a mildly competitive run and a coffee & cake.
But yesterday shone in a way only Goodgym can! I have been to Sofia, Bucharest, Wandsworth, Ironbridge Coalbrookdale and errmm Chelmsford...and yesterday was equally lovely.
Andy lost his Parkrun virginity with a sub-30 (29.35) effort, Vanessa got a smashing PB of 26.59 showing her running talent at many distances, Frazer and Louise did their first MarksHall Estate Parkrun, Ella got a course PB of 21.23, Stu and Helen concentrated hard in their vital volunteer roles, oh and I ran the wrong way! (lol)
I do not get nervous about running or many things but here is a secret...I was nervous whether people would like the cake I baked. But the chatter, laughter and messing around with a football helped! MarksHall emptied after parkrun and we enjoyed a peaceful picnic with a Woodpecker and House Martins in the sky.
Super morning and a a Great Get Together tribute to Jo Cox for sure.
PS. The report title refers to us, to running the wrong and an awfully ugly pug on the course.
