On Saturday 7th November we celebrated our 6th birthday! Thanks to all who attended the party, it was a great night and good to catch up.....whilst not running and huffing and puffing!!
Everybody put in a top effort in the dress up stakes, but our winner for the night was Lisa P with her Day of the Dead face paint and costume. Congrats Lisa and enjoy your free RechargeHQ Massage!
Our three awards this year were especially hard to decide!! Lucky we now have 4 coaches to help with the decision!
Our new electronic sign-in sorted this for us.....
