3 GoodGymers ran to help clear up the green spaces at the Kenilworth Centre.

What a wonderful day for a first run back! Having taken a month off exercise to recover from back surgery, it was lovely to get the legs turning again for a Group Run. And what better way to do it than alongside Katherine and our newest member Jelka.

After a quick chitchat in the Abbey Fields car park, we were off up Abbey Hill at a brisk power walking pace to ease Alexandra back into some cardio for the first time in a while. On arriving at the centre, we saw that everything was laid out conveniently for us and got stuck in. With Katherine on litter picking duty, Jelka and Alex tackled the overgrown shrubbery around the shed. Despite the deceptively cold weather, we made quick work of the trash and the weeds, disposing of everything in the appropriate bins.

After one final trip to the compost heap and depositing the keys into the letterbox, we made our way back towards the car park. Feeling empowered by a job well done, we even braved a light jog down Abbey Hill! A final stretch and some outdoor clothing recommendations later and we went our separate ways.
