There was an autumnal nip in the air in Greenhead Park this morning but that didn’t stop five GoodGymmers getting out of bed and running 5k. A big thank you to Acre Street Runners for providing the volunteers at Huddersfield parkrun this morning and especially to Run Director, Richard Plunkett, who gave GoodGym a shout out in the run briefing. During the run GoodGymmers chatted about organ donation after two ladies gave moving speeches in the run briefing. Have you chatted to your loved ones recently about what you want to happen to your organs when you no longer need them? As my next of kin has recently changed my sister and I have just exchanged texts on the subject. That really is all it needs to save lives! After parkrun we wandered over to Gledholt Woods, also known locally as TP Woods. We met members of the Friends of Gledholt Woods who were busy putting up smart new signs telling us about the area. With a lot of excitement at the sight of litter we got stuck in to the task at hand. After a hour we had picked up ten bags of litter and the woods were looking a lot cleaner!
