I was a keen and regular runner for the last 15 years. In January 2018 my running career came to a sudden halt due to osteoarthritis in my hip and I felt totally lost no longer being actively involved in any outdoor activities.

After some searching on the internet I came across Milton Keynes Nordic Walking. I completed my ‘Learn to Nordic Walk’ course in October 2018 and have not looked back since. I am passionate about Nordic Walking as it has given me a new lease of life and am so happy that I am able to do workouts without pain, knowing that I do not damage my hip any further.

When Emma asked if I would consider becoming a ‘Walk Leader’ I had to say YES! We can now add extra walks to our MK schedules and introduce more people to Nordic Walking in Milton Keynes.

Not only has Nordic Walking given me opportunities to discover the beautiful surroundings of Milton Keynes and beyond, but I have also met fantastic, like-minded people who appreciate the countryside and love being outside while getting and keeping fit.
