Achilles International and Goodgym were out again for our weekly social run in Green Park (every Thursday at 6pm, meeting at the station barrier). 5 Goodgymmers from all across London joined our 3 VI runners (Tom, Naqi and Andrew) for a 5-10km run around pur established Green Park circuit (avoiding all road crossings, and utilising wide pavements where we can).

Welcome to Amy, who successfully guided Tom on her first session with us, along with experienced VI guide Beth. Naqi and Simon ran together, maintaining a set pace objective over the course of 8km (4 laps, with an extra sprint included!). Tracey and Lucy ran with Andrew, who is currently building up his London Marathon training plans (Lucy also took some lovely action shots of us all running!).

Congratulations all. Thanks for joining us for a pleasant evening of running fun!
