Getting to know … Hilary Merrington
SE Walkers seem a little more reticent than runners to take part in our ‘Getting to Know You’ series so I was very pleased when Hilary Merrington volunteered. She’s the lady on the left in the white jacket. Hilary is a regular with our 11.00am Wednesday morning group. They are a social lot and the title of our little series sparked an impromptu singalong last week (as you can see a lovely day and didn’t even start raining)! This is only half the group as there is quite a range of pace so the others were some way ahead. It doesn’t stop them all getting together in Costa’s afterwards for coffee and chat. This group even organise their own coach outings!
What made you join SE Fitness walking groups?
I wanted to enjoy walking in the park with like minded people and to get some exercise.
What’s the best thing about a walk with SE Fitness?
The great company!
Your favourite season?
Definitely Spring, although I can do without April Showers!
What’s your tip for anyone looking to get out and get more active?
I find it’s easier to exercise in a group as the social side keeps me going so perhaps look to join a Yoga or Pilates Training class or come on down and give SE Fitness a try!
