A personal best and a personal first
2 GoodGymers made their way to help their local community in Newcastle.
- Sunday, 30th of July 2023
Paul and I volunteered at North Marine junior parkrun in South Shields today as I made up for missing the last takeover when I was ill.
Paul was on timekeeping duty this morning, successfully timing 61 brilliant little parkrunners, walkers, skippers and lots in between.
I did a volunteer role I have never done before, something rare for me after 11 years of parkrunning! I was on warm up lead duties, thankfully with a card to prompt me and a human prompt in the shape of junior parkrunner Eva.
I had a separate job afterwards of running around with my best friend's daughter who managed to knock over two minutes off her PB! Lots of smiles all round and a morning well spent.
