Our morning started with a mixture of running and volunteering at Parkrun in Cardiff. Guaranteed to be one of the biggest of the year, there were well over 800 runners making the most of a beautiful day.

Having completed volunteer duties and caught our breath after running, we gathered near the finish line to commence our litter pick. Moving our way up the Taff Trail, we gathered an array of rubbish. As we picked, we had positive comments from cyclists and runners who went past, grateful for our efforts to improve our local area.

We gathered at a bench with a view of Llandaff Cathedral, noting that it had been placed in memory of a lady who enjoyed sitting there to watch the world go by - what a beautiful place to rest. We'd gathered multiple bags of litter and left the path a much tidier place.

Across Cardiff, fellow GoodGymmers Ben and Ellen were also completing their own litter picks - well done guys!

A great way to start the weekend and another day ticked off for REDJanuary.
