What a year we have had!

8 Goodgym golden stars met tonight, under the frosty Christmas mist to run a mission delivering flyers to the Bridge Hall area of Stockport, other wise known as the Triangle, for St Matthews church.

We met at Produce Hall for the last time of 2019, round the jolly Christmas tree and full of cheer ready to end the year!

After a little chat and nater we set our devices, tied our laces and hit the pavements to run to Bridge hall, tonight we had 500 flyers to post to the community, and we also had a little goodgym celebration to get back to after the run, so we were were not messin on this mission.

Off we ran, we split into teams and posted as many flyers as possible within the time allocated, we didn't quiet get to the 500 but we do do a fair bit, we managed the entire estate, and while on the estate we bumped into an array of Christmas characters and houses filled with lights, and delight.

Once we had posted as many Christmas leaflets as we could it was time to head back to Stockport market, this time to party and celebrate the wonderful year we have had.

Once back we did a few stretches, mainly to prepare our arms for lifting delicious food and drinks....

I would like to take this time to say A HUGE THANK YOU, to each and every one of you, you are amazing, you make me feel so happy every Tuesday.

Im so proud if all we have achieved in 2019, we have had some super times, from painting all the colours of the rainbow and ourselves, wheelbarrowing slate, running for miles, litter picking, cleaning, leafleting but mainly the smiles.

Its wonderful to hear peoples adventures and stories every week, from the events where people have bumped into each other to the training people get through, every single one of you are AMAZING and I am proud to know you all, you bring joy to my heart, and inspire me daily. Im looking forward to the new projects, tasks, missions and runs for the year ahead.

Have a totally magical Christmas and i really look forward to 2019 and the adventures we will all do. Much love Goodgym crew...........
