Sunday 21st Jan marked the first event on the OnPoint social calendar with a 5 or 10km Run at Essendon Country Club in Hertfordshire.
Many clients saw this as an opportunity to burn of the Christmas weight but for some, it was a chance to hit a new PB and set the tone for another good year of exercise.
18 clients signed up and met on what was a very cold morning at the golf club and despite the early start of 8.30am, the atmosphere was electric.
Nerves were high and conversation kept to a minimum but as soon as that buzzer went, muscle memory kicked in and everyone just got on with it.
There has been a bit of running included in our team Training Bootcamp sessions, particularly on the weekends, so most clients were more than prepared.
Everyone completed their chosen distance and some even managed a new personal best time. One in particular was Team Member Aga, she actually finished 1st in the female 5km race. Amazing!
All in all it was a good day, followed by a nice breakfast in the club house.
We all enjoyed it and everyone really appreciated the medals and free hats at the finish line, a nice touch by the staff at Essendon Country Club!
We will definitely be there again next year, hopefully with even more members.
Thank you to everyone involved!
