2021 finale this week, we were joined by the elusive Mr Johnson. Some say when he's not playing tennis he's carefully fine tuning his racket strings, whispering sweet nothings to his shrine of Martina Navratilova. Superb to have the man down again. PC Paul also making a trip down, not seen in a month or so - and was great to have him along.

We started our jog and did a moving RWQ, "what was your best experience of 2021, your highlight?" Joining GoodGym, a great answer from Simon! Quickly followed up with the Chester HM weekender by Kev. The return of GoodGym by Sharon. I went for my first ride in 7 months post injury, what a blimmin' good blast that was.

Bulb planting for some early 2023 colour was the job at CD. Walked to the roads leading in, then begun to dig, and dig, and dig....and eventually plant. Getting some dafs in, some tulips, not sure we got round to the star flower (I've forgotten the correct nomenclature). Always nice to get some mud on your hands, and it will be especially joyous once those blooms come sprouting in Feb or so.

We decided to stick to our plan, and have our social at PrintHouse after. The old winning formula - pizzas, pints and good conversation,

2021 - that's a wrap, you've been unusual. Before I go, I want to say how impressed I am with all the missions, community missions, coach runs and group runs you did this year. In another year of adversity, you've given back, stayed fit and stayed social and kept GGN alive. Here's to us getting back to the beast we once were - with you'll at the helm.

See you all next year, have an excellent time with your family and friends, and most importantly - get them runs in ;)
