Tonight’s task took us along the roads delivering flyers for Breast Cancer Haven Charity, based in Solihull.

They have an upcoming fire walking challenge on 9th November to help raise money for the charity. It's the ultimate test of courage - challenge yourself to walk barefoot across burning wood embers! If you’re interested in finding out more details, take a look on their website, https://www.breastcancerhaven.org.uk/Event/firewalk-solihull.

We set off delivering the flyers on our designated roads - all 300! Unfortunately the rain came down pretty heavily halfway through, which made Jess start running in between houses to keep herself as dry as possible. We made good time doing that and enjoyed chatting along the way - tempting each other on to take the challenge!

As we had walked most of the route we decided we to run back a slightly longer way to still get some kilometres in!

Next week we will be dropping more flyers but on different roads - hope to see you there!

It was wet but still enjoyed it - could have done with a fire walk to warm us up!
