It was a night of celebration with 2 fantastic runners reaching GG Milestones. A HUGE congrats to;
AMAZING ANNIE for reaching 50 good deeds!
SENSATIONAL CELINE for reaching 100 good deeds!
We also welcomed 2 new GG runners, please click on their names below to support and cheer them!
We timed our departure to perfection, avoiding the rain and headed off to Hilly Heeley to meet with Heeley Green Veg; a community of neighbors looking to take stewardship of a local patch of land to teach the local community about growing fruit and veg and bring the community together to encourage socialising and reduce isolation.
With limited tools we split into 2 groups with half on the task of weeding and soil moving and half with me taking on some hill reps. We did 3 hill reps in total at 70% effort and recovered on the way back. On the final set we stopped at the top of the hill and also used a stair set to get some fast feet practice in.
After kicking of the clay mud and hearing some heartfelt thanks from the Heeley Green Veg massive we headed back for home with some loop backs and optional extensions thrown in, stretched off, heard the latest news and upcoming events and headed in for a fantastic tray bake provide by Caroline. Thanks Caroline!
Until next week, happy running! :)
