I love running (the muddier the better) and I love my goodgym gang. They rule. ❤️

Last night we had a litter pick as our task, not any old litter pick....a graveyard one!!
Caprice, Amber, Ian and myself got together at King's Park to run into town together, happy to clock up a 6km round trip.
It was Ian's first taste of GoodGym after being a long time admirer. He'd been coached by Esther from Poole before so was ready for the challenge ahead.
It was very chilly and the first challenge was to try and tie 7 pickers to my backpack to save us carrying them all the way!
We set off, pickers rattling away, an early warning sign to those ahead of us!
We met up at the church with Daryl, Laura and Vicky. Vicky was also on her first GoodGym experience and it was great to have two new, lovely people join us!
We went through names and favourite ice cream flavours, ground rules graveyard etiquette and scattered in teams to tidy the area.
We came across a toaster towards the end, Caprice and Daryl found some sausage rolls. Laura and Amber found some soiled clothing and then as we converged around the chapel we came across some trendy Adidas trainers in a bag, but because the soles were worn out we discarded them.
We took a group photo by the front steps and then ran back the way we arrived...just much colder than at the start!!
Next week we're doing some gardening on Wednesday. Come and join us!!
This week we’re heading to Mary Shelley’s resting place at St Peter’s Church in town.
We’re meeting at the Church for 6:30pm to start the clean of the graveyard, but it would be great if you joined us for a cycle or run to the church.
Some of us are running from Kings Park so you’re welcome to meet us and go together. Meet at 6:10pm. This would be a 6km round trip.
Or we can have a vote and see if we meet at the church and then go for a run together.
