A chilly but beautifully bright morning saw 102 junior parkrunners do an epic job in running 2km at Old Heath Rec.
Thanks to all our volunteers, as usual, for providing sporting good cheer and high fives of encouragement. There were lots of smiling young faces and proud parents!

A chilly but bright Sunday morning saw the red cheeked (mostly) smiling faces of the Junior parkrunners in Colchester. Our high fives and high vis helped the young runners keep on going.
We hung around for chat and a hot drink once marshaling duties were over. Parkrun really epitomizes the fundamental message behind the Great gGet Together and Jo Cox's belief that 'We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.'
Well done to all the junior parkrunners who came together to run and have fun and well done to all us GoodGymers for uniting in good cheer!

Our first trip to the foodbank of the year meant a dry task sandwiched between some wet running and walking! I suppose it sums up Goodgym: determination, dedication and durability A big welcome to Emily and thank you for a Wednesday night spent cleaning and chatting!
We headed home in the plothering rain (thanks Vanessa!) having completed the task in style!!
Goodgym day complete!

Goodgym Colchester is back! During a short break for the winter festivities some of us sported our Goodgym colours at Parkrun but now we are back in the zone. And it was great to meet Sophie as it was to catch up with everyone else.
Our last task of 2022 was singing with residents of Walnut Tree House and our first this year was at Plum hall where a leafy clear up was needed. After we spoke about the January Challenge we warmed up to make our way to Plum Hall - chatting as we got caught up with other activity groups.
Susan met us and Bob was already cracking on with the sweeping and bagging up of leaves! Did we get eight or nine bags full? Either way the paths were clear and we treated ourselves to some interval training around Abbey Fields.
Looking forward to next week already (WEDNESDAY) and I hope you have a good end to the week and weekend.
Remember Goodgym leaf no-one behind and well done on a treemendous effort. You all swept to victory. (Feel free to add your own leafy related comments below!)
