For our Tuesday group run this week, we doubled up our tasks - twice the goodness - for our regular task owners, The Heatons Post and Together Trust.
We braved the downpour, laden with weighted rucksacks to deliver both the Cheadle Post paper and leaflets for Together Trust to the community of Cheadle in one fail swoop!
Next week is definitely a run for headtorches with the autumnal darkness setting in!

After a week if Indian summer weather and heatwaves, this Tuesday's group run felt like the first of the Autumnal tasks! The return of the head torches soon!
The rain had been falling steadily all day however we managed to get a break in the rain for our 6:30pm run start. It must be GG fate!
We met at one of usual Life Leisure bases and welcomed Jenni, a born and bred northerner who lives in the south, and a regular GoodGym tourist!
After introductions, we headed on our downhill, out and back run to the delivery point, battling a light drizzle of rain on the way.
We chatted about exciting new GG plans, past tasks, races booked and whether roof climbing is advisable ( we all agreed not!)
Our leaflet delivery task was done in record time, with leaflets delivered, runs between target streets and plenty of nattering along the route.
5.77 km complete and we remained relatively dry!

Last night's group run saw us back helping with the terrific Together Trust, spreading the word of their upcoming pop up charity shop to the local Cheadle community.
You wont beLeaf(let) that we do love a leaflet drop task at GoodGym Stockport as it's a great way to get a run in, catch up and have a social run.
We started from our Life Leisure Cheadle base with a hefty uphill jog (or slog!) to our delivery destination then meandered our way through the sunny streets, delivering as we went.
We heard about all about Meera's adventures, Ben's canine companion, Laura's 30 before 30 and Sian's whale watching.
All in all, a whaley good time!
