Report written by Sallyann Hardwick
The season has definitely changed and the weather was decidedly parky on parkrun day. This didn't put off a crowd of Goodgymers turn up for our monthly parkrun session.
Eileen is a core volunteer at park run and true to form she was at her regular spot with her stack of tokens. It may have been chilly but that didn't deter Julie from hardily wearing her Goodgym t shirt. Well done to Farnaz for her first parkrun the first of many I am sure as she made it look so easy. Liam wasn't running today but that didn't stop him coming down to support the runners,ensure everyone had a point to gather at the end and remember to get the photo taken. Aditaya and Ellie both ran with springs in their step throughout and and incidently both ran good times.
Parkrun done it was time for the task at Urban Green Up - and Aditya ,Ellie, Farnaz and Liam joined by Sallyann went down to the Urban Green Up - finding we had time to spare we decided some refreshments were in order and yayyy there was a cafe (aptly named Thoughtfully cafe )right near the tastk which served delicious treats and a mighty fine chilli hot chocolate just right for a chilly day.
Whilst sat in the cafe we heard from Roz who was doing some park run tourism in Stretford congratulations Roz on your best time this year.
