Today all 485 parkrun participants made there way towards the skatepark start. The grass has risen and is looking a little lusher than before so we went 'back to the start' this week!

The foster was full this week so at the last minute this morning I decided to roll out of bed, have a quick coffee and get there just in time to walk over the football pitches with everyone else.

A reminder was given by Mr Polley for people to make sure that they take a finish token (yes even if you don't want a time), it just helps everything to run smoothly for the volunteers and it also means you will get your text/email faster too if there are less problems to sort out.

I was feeling still ill from the previous day but pleased I could now at least breath through both nostrils! The morning wasn't too cool which was good. I saw a few purple 25 volunteer t-shirts and gave them a 'well done purple volunteer!'.

Well done to fellow Goodgymmer Elizabeth for volunteering 100 times!! There's not t-shirt for that, just respect! Thank you!

Michelle fellow Goodgymmer and Norwich parkrun RD was seen on funnel managing duties and I caught her wielding (right word) a walkie talkie! She reports that all went well today, she also led the marshal briefing.

After parkrun I saw Bek had ran Norwich parkrun on Strava - kudos to you!!

Another good morning for Norwich Goodgym, running, volunteering and doing what we do very well!

Happy running and weekend everyone.
