Two Girls One Glove
33 runners ran 1.7km to help the Silver Road Community Centre in Norwich.
- Monday, 2nd of September 2019
- Led by Steven Hitcham
We had a visitor at the start of the evening tonight as Liz from NUA gave a little talk about a project in Winterton we might be able to get involved in as a Community Mission one weekend. If you have any questions about that please me know.
A slightly different set up tonight as myself and Katy have got to rest injuries so I led the run on my bicycle and Katy led the walking group. Bill and Andy shared back runner duties.
We welcomed Kathryn on her 1st GoodGym experience this evening.
Sarah and Dave Thomson have now completed 25 good deeds, fantastic effort both of you!
Tonight's run/walk (or in my case cycle) was about 1.5km each-way as we visited Silver Road Community Centre to do some weeding that had grown during the summer.
As there was a lot of us I paired everyone up and set a little relay challenge where one person would run while the other does some weeding and then they change over one the runner gets back. It avoided me having to add a fitness session in at the end ;-)
There was a slight shortage on the glove front. I know you've been intrigued as to what the pun refers to... well know you can work it out.
There were a lot of weeds but the 30+ GoodGymers pulled up the whole lot and it looked fantastic afterwards... despite me forgetting to take before and after photos.
There's a social event this Friday. For Darren's birthday there will be drinks at 8pm at The Rumsey Wells.
Next week we're visiting The Hamlet Children's Centre.

I'm the Trainer for GoodGym Norwich. I love running and have led a lot of running groups in the Norfolk area, none as fun as the GG family.
