#walk1000miles – July 2019

Just over the halfway point in August(!), I felt it would be an appropriate time to update you on the month that was July 2019.

Why Do I Lead Group Walks?

It was back in October 2012 that I first joined Brunel Walking Group in an opportunity to meet like-minded people of a similar age and to explore different areas on foot. Since then, I’ve become a regular and well-known member. It was only six-months after joining that I was leading my first group walk (I was encouraged to do it but, still).

On average, I’ll probably lead five or six walks in a year and often more. What I’d like to do in this post is to explore and share why I take on this responsibility.

Selworthy Circular

Saturday 27th October 2018

This was the most recent walk I’ve led for Brunel Walking Group. It may even be the last one I lead for 2018. I reckon I’ve now done six or seven this year.

Crowcombe and the Quantocks

Sunday 25th March 2018

One week prior to this walk, Britain was again battered by the Siberian ‘Beast’, which delayed the event of what would become and enjoyable and dry day down on the Quantock Hills.

This was Jenny’s second walk-leading experience of the month – the first of which was also postponed due to snow. We’d start from the free village car park in Crowcombe, beneath the western edge of the hills.

#walk1000miles – March 2018

Reviewing my month of walking, in the #walk1000miles challenge.

March. Shortest month of the year? Shortest month of every year???

I don’t know where it’s suddenly gone but, here with are in April; the season of spring (apparently) and it’s past-time to review my miles.
