Take me running, painting in the rain Feel it washing over me, oh oh Join us, running, painting in the rain Cover me in ecstasy , oh oh
So that's out the way now and possibly stuck in your head! Last night 11 goodgymers got together, despite the rain, to make their way on a lovely night time run to help out with some painting of railings.
Michael, led the crew on the quickest route tonight, so that we could get as much painting done as possible. First, we had to get into the office for the equipment. Luckily the key holder was in the Choir and could see us looking all confused at a locked door.
Just as we had the equipment out and we started, our organiser Julian arrived, just in time to get stuck in with the rest of us. We were brushing the railings with wire brushes, being followed by the painters. We split into a few groups, with three of us heading off under some trees to paint, which we were thankful for when it started to rain!
We cleared the equipment and put it back into storage, as we got warmed and dry with a quick bit of food from the lovely Choir with no name. A quick group photo, and it was time to head back for a nice social.

Tonight was a first for Cardiff as we changed our goodgym format.
We met at 6.30 for a full run, and then it was over to our nights location to get Volunteering. Our run was a nice out and back with a couple of groups for varying speeds. We spotted a few running groups out tonight, always nice to see others getting active.
The task was to update our goodgym Leaflets with a new QR code for the Cardiff specific page.
There was Nathan and Natasha on cutting duty as everyone else got busy with the stickers. We tried not to make too much mess, and as the clock hit our usual 8pm, we were done. Stickers used up, only 4 wasted and a total of 458 Leaflets updated.
But wait... The evening isn't over, as we have a birthday to celebrate and cake to eat.

Dylan Stocker completed 25 good deeds with GoodGym.
Dylan has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.

It's hard to believe that our last plog was 13 weeks ago.....how time flies when you're having goodgym fun.
In fact, our last plog was a certain someone's first goodgym experience, now on their 14th mission.
Tonight we welcomed back Kerry for their second time.
We have a planned route, hitting some of our lovely green spaces and the busy bike lane to the City Centre. As with most plogging sessions, the distance depends on how littered the areas are.
We managed an impressive 10 bags tonight and had plenty of thanks from other running clubs and local residents. It's nice to get thanks....

A great turn out tonight, as 17 goodgymers took to the streets to get active a do some good.
Our last visit to this Church, at least for this year, so it was lovely to see so many of us there. A somewhat awkward start as our organiser was stuck in traffic but that just gave us time to get social and have a chat.
Lets not forget some welcomes......
There was plenty to chat about as we have the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday, expect some goodgym cheers out on the course.
Michael received a call from the organiser, and just like that we could get started - after being told where to get the tools from. It wasn't much longer until they arrived, and we were early to the task anyway!
Everyone got to work to get as much done as possible, the front of the building looked beautiful and tidy, the rail was up in the hall and a good chunk of the back was weed free.
Thanks to all for coming tonight.
Get signed up for next week when you can.

Thanks to all that braved the very changeable weather tonight. A special welcome to our newest member, what a night to come out for your first goodgym run
No one was sure what the task would be tonight until we arrived and had a chance to review the weather. Spoiler alert – the review for today’s weather.... Awful.
Thankfully, the rain stopped enough for us to get outside and do some manual work, the goodgym exercise at work indeed.
We were able to spend a bit more time here tonight as the run went quicker than planned, we even had time to arrange our return visit. I’m very excited to announce that it will be a Halloween Run, as it falls on a Tuesday... Costumes / face paint optional, but very very much encouraged.... I’m thinking Frankenstein’s Monster..... What are your thoughts?
See you at a run / task soon... Don’t forget we do have walking options available at some tasks, read the description to see. You can also meet us there if that’s easier, or cycle of course. All active travel is welcomed at goodgym.
Tata for now
