Five GoodGymers headed off on a sunny Monday evening from Stepney Bank Stables to deliver some leaflets for Recyke Y' Bike. The stunning revelation of the day came before setting off, as Thomas proudly announced his engagement. Congratulations Tom!

After running for approximately a mile, all of the leaflets were swiftly delivered. The heartwarming moments kept coming as a young boy then approached to ask what the red GoodGym shirts were. He seemed suitably impressed to find out who we were and what we were doing before going on his way.

Everyone, bar Aimee who had to dash off to the cinema (hope you made it in time), then headed back along a slightly longer and more scenic route by the river while Maddy told us all about how much she was enjoying training for the Edinburgh Marathon. Good luck at the race!

After a quick stretch back at Stepney Bank Stables, Elliot went on his way to ponder the best way to attack a block of butter (you probably had to be there).

All in all, a very successful and informative evening!
