Not all hero's wear capes, but last nights did!

It was SENSATIONAL STEVE'S 500th good deed last night! Massive respect! Steve has been coming to GG since nearly the very start and has been consistently contributing in numerous ways to the growth of the group and it's community. Steve has been visiting his coach for a number of years and continues to support them today. Thank you for all of you help and contribution Steve!

At the other end of the GG time line we had Robert joining us for his first run. Please click through on Robert's name above to support him and give him some cheers! Hope to see you again soon Robert and thanks to Lan for introducing him to the group.

This week saw the return to Regather, an old friend of GG SHF where a couple of our runners, Serge and Becky work. The task was a great one where we were helping Gareth, Becky and Serge to empty their full to the brim basement of various items that had been used in the past for their events around the city which over the last couple of years have had to cease. In true adapt and overcome fashion the Regather crew have come up with a new use for the space and plan to grow mushrooms in the basement that will go into their fantastic fruit and veg boxes.

After forming a human chain and emptying the contents to another storage space down the road, we aid our farewells and headed for home but not without some leg killers on the way. This week we paired up and used a well lit underpass for some leggy action. One person wall sat, whilst the other sprinted up a ramp and down some stairs and tagged their partner to swap. We did three round and then headed closer to home.

When closer to The Showroom we used some concrete steps for another quick leg killer that involved 4 steps so we did 4 squat jumps on each followed by a step up or a box jump up to the next level. Killer!

The photos attached tell some great stories of last night but also this month with a great effort and result in the January challenge. Thanks to all who have contributed and continue to do so.

Until next time, happy running! :)

Well done Susan, Kim and everyone in Sheffield for winning Group K of the January challenge. In Tower Hamlets, we needed a 21-person turn-out to overtake Southwark. We got 22 but you lot sneaked in to the top with this 28-strong Group Run!
