Oh yes. Livia is training. This is how the greatest atheletes on earth are made. Livia is making it happen. They logged their first training run on the GoodGym site; extraordinary things are sure to follow.
Livia is part of a crowd that's making a huge noise. Livia has been cheered by 25 people - that's a round of applause just on their own. We hope they keep it up.
Livia has just run their first 10k. 10,000 metres would take you most of the way across London. It's far. Livia now knows a bit of what it might be like to be Mo Farah.
Livia has just logged their first 5k with GoodGym. Livia has joined the ranks of Athletes like Tirunesh Dibaba - running gracefully over 5000 metres. Show Livia some love.
Livia has got Strava connected. Strava is a great way to track your progress.
Livia has helped keep other people motivated, Livia has noticed what others have done and cheered 10 people. We doff our caps to you Livia.

New year new HQ for Kingston this week - out with the old meet up point in the Guildhall and in with the new meet up point at the fantastic Quaker Centre. Led by a fresh faced new Area Activator in Rachel, who gave her first group briefing and led her first (of many I'm sure) run around fairfield and back to school for the evenings mission.
It was there our teacher for the evening, Kate, took over the lesson. Maths was the topic of choice in a slightly practical format.Taking away all the muddy build up and school resources that had beenadded since our last visit, and to tidy up the gardens round the front of the school of themultiple weeds that had. Like all good students wedivided into smaller groups and sub groups, to set about the various tasks and indouble quick time we completed the tasks and were rewarded with chocolate cake in the staff room for being so well behaved.
After school, a few of us snuck of to the pub to let our hair down a bit, before we called it a night.
Thanks to Rachel for organising the Quaker centre as our new meet up point - it really is a fantastic all singing and all dancing venue, for the future of Kingston GoodGym. I look forward to more group runs setting off from here to come. Also thanks to Kate for organising the school mission for us, I'm sure we'll be needed back in the spring again.
