A huge thank you to everyone that was up at 6:30am and came on the 10km Challenge run / walk this morning!
We had magical weather in Hervey Bay and it was so gorgeous outdoors on the bike track.
I had a 72 year old, a 68 year old, 7 and an 8 year old, a diabetic, our Fraser Coast Mayor, walkers from Maryborough, my regular exercise friends and lots of fit and fun Hervey Bay Locals!
One walker accidently forgot to turn at the Pier and ended up at the Boat Club adding an additional 3km to his walk plus is 67 and a diabetic … well done and very keen I must say!
I ran backwards and forwards during the walk chatting and checking on everyone to make sure they were all doing ok, and met some really nice and interesting people, all ages, and like minded!
WIN news even turned up to film the start.
A big thank you to Enzo for giving participants 20% OFF their Coffee!
Well done everyone, you should be very proud of yourselves and thank you so much for your support of the Fun and Fitness I’m trying to create on the Fraser Coast.
I think as per your suggestions we may have to make this a more regular event!
For those that enquired about shirts for the walk they are available here!
Hmmmmm perhaps 15km next time?
