It was not an attractive prospect looking out of a Sheffield window for tonight's run with grey sky's overhead, wet on the floor and the chance of wet from the sky. However a hardy bunch braved the prospect of poor weather and headed out to help out Heeley People's Park who had just that weekend hosted a Big Boulder festival event.

We headed out from base up toward the park and got a brief on the evenings tasks which included;

  1. Cutting back overgrown hedges
  2. Sweeping up cuttings
  3. Putting cuttings into tonne bags and wheelbarrows
  4. Emptying cuttings onto compost area
  5. Rediscovering the 'Welcome to Heeley' sign

The team did a fantastic job and the place was looking so much better after a small spell of work from the @GGSHEFF crew. We even had the local PCSO's pull up to see what was going on here then. They were pleased and thankful with our efforts.

On route back to base we stopped at the U-Mix centre to hangout for a bit of fitness.

This week we did the hanging challenge where each member performed a straight arm hang for as long as they could with times being shouted out to try and be beaten at home or at some point in the future.

Following this we had a little sprint on the red track before regrouping at the finish line and jogging back to base to finish, stretch off and hear the latest news, including a big cheer for Celine who has now done he 50th good deed so had the now customary red GG bowtie on all run and will have her black GG tee winging it's way to her in the post soon!

Until next time, happy running!
