Gill is a Walx Guide for Walx Preston.
After having to give up running due to a back injury a friend suggested I give Nordic Walking a try. I took my taster session in January 2017 and was immediately hooked. I completed my course in February 2017 and since then there has been no stopping me.
After a month of walking I was signed off by my physio as my back and core had vastly improved. To the point that I have been able to take myself up to the Lake District for some hill walking.
I have made many new friends through Nordic Walking which was another bonus after living abroad for 18 years.
Together we encourage and help each other with our group walks and challenges. Always looking to the future for further activities and challenges. Walx Preston is not just a walking group but a family.
