The best things in life are three!
21 runners ran 4.0km to help the Colchester Foodbank in Colchester.
- Wednesday, 7th of August 2019
- Led by Tav
18 runners met at Leisure World to celebrate Goodgym Colchester’s 3rd birthday.
Run leader Tav started with our usual round up of news. The main topic being that Goodgym Colchester has turnt 3! And for our task we were going back to where it all started, The Food Bank.
In other news, Olympians were applauded for their efforts at the weekend. Egg and spoon and sack races were completed with gusto and a good time was had by all. Tav came first in both the 100m and 800m races and Ella came 2nd in the 5000m earning a PB of 20:34 too! Overall Colchester came fourth place for the shield! A mission was also successfully completed at the weekend, which saw goodgymers volunteering for junior Parkrun and then cleaning up the area afterwards following a concert the night before.
Dan Norkett celebrated his 50 good deeds tonight and we are starting to see the black t-shirts catching up with the red! Chrissie is a newly anointed member of the Taskforce and we are looking forward to new tasks coming our way. One potential new task was hinted at that would involve Goodgymers cleaning a boat, which is likely to be a GoodGym first!
