32 runners ran 3.3km to help their local community in Islington.
A big welcome to our first timers tonight Rosa, Sally, Sara, Christina and Emma.
Also joining us was brand new GoodGym Sheffield Trainer Tom. He's down south to learn the ropes.
We also had our haiku competition. The Gg-ers with the best haiku get to go to the sought-after farm task. Here's the offerings:
Stubbed my toe, now it's
purple. Doc prescribed a short
run and happy goats.
Running to do good
with semblance of cleaner
air oh supply me
for runners doing good deeds
I said I would bake
So you already promised
I’d go to the farm
So, Kike led that lot and a few other speedsters to the farm for shovelling galore, while Aidan led a group to Single Homeless Project's Highbury New Park site to sort out their garden and have a bit of a longer run, and Simon took a gang to Wilton Square to relocate compost, do a special squat challenge with Tom and perform a three-team, five-person continuous relay.
Big debate this evening. After a creepy comment about assaulting people and a few complaints to GG central about Simon we discussed what the most important birthday to celebrate. 30 won.
Treats this week were provided by Sarah. Delicious brownies that were still warm! Amazing.
Frances is in charge of treats next week when we're off to St. Luke's Community Centre.
See you there,
P.S. Tip of the GG cap to Chris for pun report title
