Dani Shmait has done their first good deed with GoodGym.
Dani is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.

This week, 9 Goodgym members made their way over to Foleshill Social Supermarket to help them keep on top of their green space.
The pressure was on this week, as Lil rather foolishly promised sunshine for the session tonight! As people prepared for their session, grabbed their red tops and pondered how many layers to wear, the rain was still falling and skies certainly didn't look promising. Luckily, Coventry goodgym are a hardy bunch, and not put off by the British summer.
This week, we welcomed Dani to our group sessions. A big welcome to you, Dani, and we look forward to seeing you at future sessions.
After our welcomes and warm up, we set off on our run up the centre which is one of our longer distances and a few sneaky hills in the way. Everyone dug in, with Laura expertly back marking and everyone looping back to keep the group going and motivated. Perfect training for some of our members who have Coventry Half Marathon in the diary.
In just 35 minutes, we managed to fill 4 crates with pesky weeds, with just a couple of giant thistles left (we'll leave those for the bees!) Top work everyone! It was soon time to pack up with just time to take a photo by the recently painted mural.
Just as we left, the sun began to shine and we headed back down into the city centre and chatted all things goodgym.
Well done everyone!
