We’ll be Biden our time until we Trump Covid!
10 runners ran to help the Ingram Crescent Gardening Group in Brighton.
- Tuesday, 3rd of November 2020
- Led by Tara Shanahan
As America went to the polls and England prepared for lockdown, Brighton Goodgym headed to Ingram Crescent Community Garden.
Our task tonight, the last one before L2, was to turn a grassy, weedy bank into a meadow. Using forks, rakes, edgers, trowels and mattocks we dug, scraped, pulled and weeded and there was plenty to chat about as we did it. Topics included food waste vs food packaging, Trump vs Biden, and positives vs negatives of another lockdown.
We also exchanged ideas about how to stay connected and keep each other motivated during the next few weeks. We decided we will use our Tuesday evenings to share our personal goals for lockdown (fitness or otherwise) and check in weekly to ensure we are staying on track! We will also be setting collective goals that we can work on together, such as collecting as many street names of cities on our runs. All ideas on this are welcome!
So Covid might be forcing us apart for the next few weeks, but we will stay connected, support each other and come out the other side ready to continue our efforts to make the world a little bit better whilst making ourselves a little bit fitter.
Stay safe, stay sane, stay connected x
