This morning we had a slightly different 'group run' in that it was a walking one.

We joined the Birmingham Walkathon team in Rockary Park, Erdington to deliver some leaflets about the said event. GoodGym being the official training partner of the Walkathon. Before we set off Jonny did a few videos, giving nutrition and training advice for the big day before re headed out for the leaflet drop.

We went up and down a main road, dropping lots of leaflets in all the houses on one side, before coming up the other side.

We were lucky the weather stayed nice and dry and after the task, Jonny got the Warm up leader job on the actual day of the event. Morwenna managed to organise a leaflet drop for the event and on arriving home Jo signed up to actually take part in the event doing the full 26 miles!

A great morning had by all :)
