Tonight many of us returned to Goodgym victorious from the Brighton Half Marathon! Congratulations to everyone who ran there were PBs galore and thank you to everyone who supported along the route. Tonight we also welcomed a new member Thomas who was attending his first ever Goodgym session!

Unfortunately Tom picked one of the worst nights of weather we've had for a while! Already freezing cold the rain soon started to pour. We gave a quick intro to Tom and heard all the stories from Sundays Half before heading off to the task.

It was thankfully a short run and a small hill to get there. We arrived to a helpful note from the task owner with the tool shed ready to go. However, getting tools out of the shed was like a scene out of a horror film with the wind blowing, doors banging and tools falling everywhere. Each of us gathered up some tools and headed to the gardens to get weeding. It was more a case of spot the weed that wholesale weeding with the dark not helping our task. But we managed to get some work done before our hands gradually started to freeze to a stop.

We packed up the tools and ran back to the start (avoiding the bollards en route!). The run seemed to help thaw us all out before we headed home to get warm.

Thanks everyone for braving the weather. See you next week!
