Oh Wow! What an amazing morning! RunTogether were so impressed by the amount of Happy Feet runners that ran with us in February that they decided to give our runners a surprise treat.
They contacted the Happy Feet team a few days ago to tell us that fitness celeb and RunTogether Ambassador Jessie Pavelka would love to come along and present our runners with their well deserved Runtogether medals! We were really excited and feel very proud that they picked us for this special recognition...but we were sworn to secrecy and we only had a few days notice to come up with a cover story that would encourage our runners to turn up at Lyppard Hub, on a Saturday morning when they would normally be having a rest day.
However our runners came out in force for "a picture in the local paper", some of them popping along after Parkrun and others fitting us in around their other plans, and what a treat they were in for with the lovely Jessie. We did a quick photo shoot and a short run before finally being able to reveal that we had a special Ambassador coming later in the morning, but we still couldn't say who it was!
When Jessie arrived there was some swooning and a real buzz of excitement that such a famous fitness expert was here to present OUR medals! He was fantastic, congratulating all the runners, having photos taken and signing autographs.
The RunTogether team also had a chat with a members and heard some of your inspirational stories.
Well Done Happy Feet Runners!
Cancer Research UK Race for Life 2016
In July 2016 15 Happy Feet ladies ran the Worcester Race for Life. This was the first running event many of them had participated in and they did themselves proud, it was a fantastic achievement for them all.
In 2017 the Happy Feet Fitness ladies will once again be entering the event. The recent Couch to 5k and 5-10k courses have been timed perfectly to finish just in time and the girls are up for the challenge! There will be another blog about their successes after the event.
Being part of Race for Life is an amazing experience, women of all shapes and sizes run and walk around the course, being cheered on by their friends and relatives and all the volunteers around the course. At the end you get a medal too....everyone loves a bit of Bling!
Many do it in remembrance of loved ones lost to cancer and many in celebration of the lives being saved by amazing cancer treatments. The money that the women raise goes towards funding vital research to treat all types of cancers, we know this is helping, as many, many more people now survive cancer, or live good quality lives than ever before.
