7 wonderful Goodgymmers visited the good folk at Russell's Hub in Wood Green to help them get one of the park's toilets ready for an event this weekend.

Toilet puns are really crap

I know that as it's the tradition, some of you are here for toilet puns, and urine in luck as we're going to dump them all in this very paragraph, flush out the cringe so to speak, so we can get the potty started. Happy now?

Our Goodgymmers ran through the streets of the Noel Park Estate tonight towards Russell Park to lend a hand to the Noel Park Big Local, who manage the Russel's Hub space in the park. They had cleared out one of the park's toilets and left it ready for us to give it a good lick of paint.

We learnt that a cleaning crew had given the toilet the once over earlier in the day and we were very pleased to find they had done a fantastic job - the toilet barely seemed like it needed any work at all! We were there to do a job, however, so we Picassoed our way through one toilet and even had time to paint the kitchen space at the hub as well.

While Kapil kindly cleaned out the painting paraphernalia, the rest of us stood around him, inspecting his work and shooting the breeze. We found out that Sam is not a big fan of Legionnaires' Disease and that some of the misconceptions we've had to clear up with people is that Goodgym is not "a gym where they make women run to see old people," and that we are in no way doing court-ordered community service.

By the end of the session, we were absolutely wiped so we high-fived and half of our group ran westward home, while Gramps led the rest of the crew back to HQ.

Good times.

Good luck to Sarah at the Manchester Marathon, Charlie at the Royal Parks Half Marathon, Kapil who's parkrunning abroad and everyone else running this weekend.

And join us next week for more fun.
