Arriving at our usual spot on a hot, hot summer's eve, we greeted Jess for her first good deed! Ben arrived looking incredibly fly in his new red t-shirt. A wonderful, as always, introduction from Laurie, and we set off running just over 3km on the way there. While we ran we discussed our 5th place at the quiz this Sunday, Joel still adamant dinosaurs are not animals. Must be all those pints he had this afternoon. I did love Erin calling 'big long necky bois' and 'spiky, spiny bois' as her favourite types of dino though.
Arriving at the hub, we started painting the gaps we had on the benches. We worked hard and hopefully they're now ready for the coats of colour in a few months. Thanks for having us Ormiston Families and thanks for arranging all the great tasks, Fay! As we posed for a photo with our handiwork, Sallyann got a well deserved round of applause for reaching her 50th good deed! Still think she should have got on Joe's shoulders for the photo though...
We ran back to base and parted ways in the surprisingly dark (but still warm) evening. Great to meet you Jess and hope you come back!
Some socials coming up to keep an eye out for too!

*9 Goodgymers ran 5.4km to meet 2 more Goodgymers to help out Ormiston Familes at the prison! *
We met and lamented the change in weather, and our mouths dropped open as a collective when The Secret Weapon Martin whipped out his courgette collection. Phwoar. Richard didn't know where to look.
We headed on out to get painting another undercoat on the benches. The incredibly thirsty benches soaked up the paint while we beavered away. Fay regaled tales of how her dad used to play football against the prison team and Sallyann helped me out with my crevice issues. Joe got stuck in with an unusual painting technique of lying on the floor, spider on the right nipple.
Thanks to Ormiston Families for having us, and especially to the helper (sorry I didn't get the name!) who brought us water. Great work everyone.
We ran back pretty quickly trying to look out for the supermoon/ blue moon but alas nothing. Erin and I even got mugged off by Joel, for shame for shame.
After we got back we handed out Athletic Brewing tasty brews and planned socials. Back Inn Time after a GG session this month and a fancy dress bar crawl in October! Watch this space for dates! Pub quiz this Sunday at the Ale House too!
