February 2018 Newsletter

A quacking start to 2018!


A big thank you to everyone who supported the Lucky Duck charity events on January 12th, 13th and 14th! We raised £400 which is an eggcellent start to the year.Unfortunately the year wasn’t a great start for our walk leader Maria. She took a tumble and dislocated her shoulder. She is recovering and thanks everyone for their kind messages. The diary has had a few updates as it is not possible to sustain the energy of all 17 walks. There is just three Friday walks in the month, and three 8am Saturday Early Birds.

We are also ramping up the gear, or rather pace, for our Nordic Walking Reading Half Marathoners!
We have hi jacked some of the sessions and extended them by half an hour so that our Reading Half Marathon team can have a taste of racing pace and really munch those miles. These are open to those who are able to sustain this moderate to strenuous pace.

It’s nearly Spring and already some of the smile-inducing colourful flowers are coming through! Share your photos to our Facebook group! We shall also be having a spring clean of our program. Do you have a favourite walk or session that you want to make sure we save for the new program?

Keep up to date with our group news and promotions on Facebook – its your page to catch up on your stories and photos enjoyed on your walks plus health tips, delicious recipes and inspirational achievement stories. Do engage and interact with us and share with your friends and family.
