26 Month Streak
Tue 20th Feb at 6:45pm
Welcome to Lambeth's Tuesday evening Group Run and also a new innovation - our monthly Book Club!
Let me explain, this evening we were due to help out Valcie and the team at Papa's who kindly host us and let us use the hall before our runs. Our task was to weed and tidy the outdoor and playground areas and do a quick litter pick while we were at it and so a small group consisting of Tilly, Michael and AA Yianny met in the hall pre-run.
In lieu of a category we turned our attention to literature and particularly Japanese authors and novels (Murakami people - get on board) and from there it was a short hop to what we were are all reading currently and so our recommendations this month are Wandering Souls by Cecile Pin and Master Slave Husband Wife: An epic journey from slavery to freedom by Ilyon Woo. You're welcome ;0)
We headed off for a quick 3km loop up to Stockwell and back round via Clapham North discussing all things literature as we went and then back at base we grabbed the bag of tools and began weeding the verges of the planters around the community space.
40 minutes later we had pulled up plenty of weeds and filled two bin liners ready to be disposed of and so Papa's will be a nicer place for everyone as of tomorrow!
What better way to end the session than with a nice cold (non-alcoholic) brew, big thanks to our froemds at Athletic Brewing Co.
Despite someone trying to lock our trusty volunteers inside we managed to escape and so we look forward to our next GoodGym task.
Thanks team - see you at the next one.

It was looking like a very small group on the GG website last night but luckily we had a new runner joining us via the listing on MeetUp.
Martin was along for his first ever session with us and we were delighted to have him!
And so it was that we had Tilly, AA Yianny and Martin heading out for a last minute changed session of Litter Pick Bingo. We headed out towards Clapham North and round back towards Brixton before we cracked out the black bags, gloves and trusty litter picker to begin our task of cleaning up Lambeth's streets.
Our best item was a little circuit board so definitely counts as an unusual item and along with a customary gas cannister we filled 3 bin bags and deposited them in the large bins along the way.
That was it for last night, simple and effective and we wish Valcie a speedy recovery and hope to see her very soon at the rearranged Landor Road session.
Thanks to all and see you next week!
