OK, it wasn't a storm- just a little drizzle. I needed a pun...

Simon, Lucy and Katy, Goodgymmers from all different boroughs, met up for our weekly VI group running session with Achilles International on a slightly rainy (but cool and fresh) Thursday evening. Mark, Tom and Andrew caught up with us all at Green Park station before we set off to our usual start point near the main fountain.

Lucy was a first timer at our Achilles Group Runs, but had previously guided at her local parkrun. She guided Andrew (who is in full training for London Marathon atm) around our 1.2 mile loop near Buckingham Palace, while Simon helped with some navigation for the first lap. Katy guided Tom for an endurance test- running as far as they could around the course within a full hour. Excellent job all!

If you are interested in giving VI running a try, sign up to our next session here:
