Does the early bird get the worm? There were not too many worms this morning in Acton Park. They would surely come out after sensing the rain but today's junior parkrunners and volunteers luckily just dodged the wet weather. Speaking of dodging... Run leader Sevan, who monthly organises the GoodGym volunteers to get them involved in junior parkruns, had no chance of dodging the crown today!

Sevan just reached a royal milestone of 500 good deeds and there were no escape from the regal insignia! 👑

Sevan was the King of Time today, filling the timekeeper role. Florian was just behind him at the funnel, handing out the finish tokens, later scanned by Kash. Joanna was orchestrating the whole event as the run director and Chikako acted as the VI Guide as usual. Harvey, Michelle, Emmanuella and Alan covered the marshal posts - today on a slightly different, winter version of the course.

After seeing all 26 young runners passing the finish line and uploading the parkrun results, the crew wrapped up. The GoodGymers, headed to a coffee place to celebrate Sevan's milestone and cause despair for those who were behind their long queue for coffee, tea and matcha latte. GoodGym apologises to everyone who needed just a quick dose of caffeine this morning, but 500 good deeds milestones don't happen every week! 😅
