Richard run a race with GoodGym for the first time.

Richard has done their first race with GoodGym. Performing on the day is a lot of pressure; Richard's dealt with the nerves and turned up on the day to make it happen.

Joe and the sweaty lobster

Chelmsford Report written by Fay Downing

10 GoodGymers congregated on a chilly morning to volunteer at Chelmsford Parkrun's 11th birthday event. Andy wore his birthday hat to celebrate, while Fay wore the GoodGym banner in an effort to keep warm. We welcomed a new member called George (also known as Martin) and gathered for the obligatory group picture. Our youngest supporter Eden joined us with her dad and we all set off to take up our positions.

There were some very speedy runners this morning, so fast we weren't even sure if they were taking part or just happened to be sprinting along at that time. We saw some quality fancy dress, including a dalmatian leading a dalmatian, the lobster in question and a variety of nuns. We also saw some familiar GoodGymers taking part. Joe, Joel and Richard E all waved hello as they went past. (None of them were dressed as nuns!) As the tail walkers made their way back the marshals joined them and we all congregated at the finish line for some delicious cake (although Angela wished it was more fiery!). A little starter before a well deserved fry up! We said goodbye to Laurie, David, Sallyann and Jenny who apparently had better things to do and headed off Spoons.

There are some great pictures from today, everyone was in good spirits even though we needed to defrost afterwards.

We have another litter pick coming up this week, hopefully it will be slightly warmer than last week, you can sign up here

More than a (finish) token gesture

Chelmsford Report written by Laurie Glendinning

12 GoodGymers and one little helper braved the cold for a volunteering session at Chelmsford Central parkrun.

We did marshalling, barcode scanning, and finish tokening.

Most of us struggled to resist the Mr Kiplings pies afterwards, followed by hot drink queues, large breakfasts and pancakes at our old faithful Wetherspoons.

Well done all, and we'll be repeating this in January!

Can you not, Rich?

Chelmsford Report written by Laurie Glendinning

To start Fay's 6th GoodGym birthday, we welcomed Jess back for her second GoodGym run, followed by somehow posing for Rich's slightly creepy panoramic photo.

The runners set off with litter pickers towards King's Road and were caught up shortly after by Fay and Rich who walked. Russell and Andy were engaging in more chat than litter picking, and dragging Rich down with them, so it was suggested they move to the other side of the road. Ben joined to help, and I joined to supervise. I can't say that the chatting stopped, but we did fill quite a large bag of litter and stop for some ridiculous photos.

The other (much larger) group left us behind, so we got our head torches on and caught them up (still chatting the whole way). We reconvened, got a much more normal group photo, and jogged back through the park to make it a nice round 5-ish km.

Once we got back we were excited to get ready for our trip to Back Inn Time. Andy, Joe, and Paul took extra long to pamper themselves in the gym changing rooms, whilst Erin went with the no changing approach. We all enjoyed our diner experience, and managed to not be brainwashed by Richard's shiny folding phone.

We've got the pub quiz on Sunday and there's some spaces left - sign up here.

We'll also be running polls soon for volunteering at parkrun in November, and the December social. Keep an eye on whatsapp for those.

Next week Rich is leading a litter pick - sign up here.

See you soon,

Laurie

The return of the Original K 💪😎

Chelmsford Report written by Rich Walker

On what could be the last warm summery evenings of the year we met at HQ ready for another great Goodgym sesh, and who should turn up but the originator of Chelmsford Goodgym, the man, the myth, the legend Ken . And also he finally reached his 100th good deed. superb work my man

Tonight we would be litterpicking in Arun park and some of the surrounding streets. A gentle jog along the bunnywalks with littpickers in hand and we were soon there. And greeted as we climbed the hill by Sallyann in her brand new 50 Gooddeeds Tshirt. Well done Sallyann

Andy struck a pose with a pair of "Armani" sunglasses Joe had found in a hedge ( that seemed dubious), Erin ,Angela and Richard chatted about Trance music festivals ( that i think they made up the names for) and Jenny decscibed the colour green she was going to paint the walls of her house (that her dad didn't like).

With 2 bags full of rubbish we headed back to base and went on our merry way.

Thanks for coming all

Run Happy

Rich
