70 Month Streak
Tue 30th Jan at 6:30pm
Tonight myself, Laura, Morwenna and Ramiz tried out the new local running club. We met a little earlier for a litter pick and collected a bags worth of rubbish in around 15 minutes! Then we did a 5K with the CanEat running group. It was so cool to be join this amazing group and we all pushed ourselves up a very long hill!
Back to the bar afterwards for cups of tea and excellent chats.

Tonight we had a lovely plog around the streets of Bournville, collecting a bag of litter which I ran with like Santas sack. This was a good thing as I'd not come as festively dressed as Morwenna (in her hat), Laura (with her tinsel) & Eve (in a set of fairy lights).
After the 6km run we headed to the pub for pizza, pints and a good chin-wag before the Christmas break!

After another cold day we all gathered at Dad's Lane Community Association (or the newly named Pineapple House, owing to it's location on Pineapple Road) to get stuck in with the weekly cleaning tasks.
Laura got to work cleaning the floors, while Eve removed marks from the walls. Liam and Annie were stuck in with sweeping and Morwenna, Ramiz & his friend (WELCOME!!) got stuck in giving the kitchen a deep clean.
After this we headed out on a 5km Run to the famous Bournville tree! It was so lovely chatting to Ramiz, and we hope you come back. I'll be sure to send an email follow-up and include some other activities in Brum to get stuck in with.
Thank you all for a lovely run!

This week we had a slight change to the plan and instead migrated south to Stirchley for the evening for a litter pick. Laura and Morwenna really pulled eachother along with some grueling picking, the highlight being part of the soul of a shoe (hence the pun!).
After the pick, we went for a gentle 4km run around to get warm before heading back to base for a well earned refreshment.

Tonight we were joined by Mayu for the first time who is a student from India.
Laura led the way to the canal. We were going to a specific spot which was covered in rubbish. We filled two bags of rubbish and really made a difference to the area.
Once done we ran into the city centre, around the cathedral square, then dropped down to St Paul's square and back to 1k Trades, for a good 5k in total.

This evening we headed out from Dads Lane to do a plog round Stirchley! We headed to Hazelwell Park and picked up two bags of litter, including a skateboard broken in two. We also saw an adorable cat.
We headed on a short run round the block and then straight to the pub!

On a rainy Tuesday evening we met at Dad's Lane for some brick moving! Amy was first to arrive, then Laura had run up (completing an impressive 4 miles!), and we all got stuck in , moving bricks from one pile in the front to the back garden. This is so that contractors can make a start on the paving (exciting!). Sofeen arrived shortly afterwards as a surprise addition to the crew, this was welcomed by all as it sped up the work as we implemented a rally with wheelbarrowers and stackers and tidyers. All this in the rain! Great work all!
Afterwards it was time for a hot drink in the warm and welcoming community centre that many Brum GoodGymers have helped to make into the space it is today.

Yesterday myself, Morwenna, Laura and Rich attended Cannon Hill's 13th birthday and spoke to people about GoodGym as well as repping the red tees. Hopefully this will encoarage more people to join us! We were surrounded by plenty of other running clubs and their flags waving proud.
Laura and Morwenna both cycled to the event, with Morwenna also running in an incredible time. I also volunteered on barcode scanning duties.
It was a lovely morning!

We welcomed Hayley to GoodGym for the first time! This was also our first time doing a group run in Stirchley.
We met at Dads Lane Community Association which was a great place to check out our previous handiwork.
We then ran down to Hazelwell Park where Richard had bags, gloves and litterpicks for us! After a litter pick we did a 5k run together along the Rea before heading to British Oak for some refreshment.
