Nordic Walking week commencing 16th October, 2017
What a generous bunch of walkers we have at Walk2Fitness! We raised £160 from the Children In Need Countryfile Ramble on Saturday and from your kind donations. Thanks you all so much. It was perfect conditions for a walk and seeing all the autumn colours in the woods made it a real treat of a walk.
Our Woburn Pub Lunch was as good as always and seeing the Deer, Black Squirrels and Red Kites made it real nature walk. The Green Man is a fave of many of us and the lunches didn’t disappoint. A lovely morning, thanks for your company.
We had a great group attend the British Nordic Walking 10k Challenge in Black Park today and not only did our Walk2Fitness Walkers WIN the Fastest Team with Helen, Paul, and Howard clocking fab times, Paula won the overall Fastest British lady Champion 2017 again this year! What a great accomplishment by Paula and by all my walkers who came today and put in great performances. Well done everyone. Woohoo!
I’d like to welcome some new Nordic Walkers who completed their courses this week, they are: Anita, Robert, Jackie B, Sheila, Michelle, Wendy, Karen, Jo, David, Jacqui H, Lara, Sue and June.
