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

Our "Parkrun on Tour" is halfway through 2022! Eight GoodGymers came out for our sixth edition and this time, we were in Crystal Palace! Yet, since Wireless Festival is being setup, the course was changed from a 2 lapper to a 2.25 lapper. We had to do the initial steep(ish) hill three times.
Now, that's six out of six for sunny weather with these "Parkruns on Tour". With optimal conditions, 7 GoodGymers from GG Bromley, Ealing, Hounslow and Southwark were ready to take the course! Tim Lund opted to volunteer as a Tail Walker as they were in desperate need of volunteers.
We all lined up for the start and then off we went! Setting our own pace, here were the results:
After the parkrun and a group photo, we made our way to Black & Green Cafe for a deserved coffee/tea!
Well done everyone and looking forward to seeing you on another "Parkrun on Tour". The next one we'll be heading to Peckham Rye on Saturday 30th of July. I won't be there myself, but there will be a few from GG Southwark. Check the details and sign up here!

A nice task clearing up a small back garden, where the brambles hid lots of pots, garden decorations and some tools which might have been useful as well ... once. Mrs L was lovely, with a teasing sense of humour, watching over us as her garden reappeared. We put the plant remains in a corner, to turn into humus, repotted a couple of massive yuccas, and left it with Mrs L to make some decisions about what to keep or throw away

A nice garden tidying task, with lots of ivy to clear. I guess I left the garden looking more untidy, but Mrs R and her daughter were happy all the same, because I left them with:
A huge pile of ivy and some leylandii in the middle - and a suggestion to get her son to move it under some trees for composting, rather than bother get it all bagged up as garden waste
A small pond which I'm glad I hadn't stepped into before I'd removed the ivy which completely covered it
A tool shed packed with stuff, much quite useful, but which you couldn't really get into with all the ivy, completely emptied
Its contents sorted and set out over some paving, ready for some to be junked, some put back, some given away perhaps.
It really was progress, and it was nice to see Mrs R smiling at the end
