Elle Running Club with GB Hockey Team

The perks of being an Elle insider is that you get to run with the Elle run club. Last night I joined the team for a run from Elle HQ. I loved the atmosphere it was very informal everyone was so friendly, a chance to socialise and meet new people whilst running. We also got to meet and run with the GB Hockey girls team.

As it was my first time at this run club, it was great that the Elle team gave us an introduction of themselves. Then it was over to the GB Hockey girls team. Interesting to hear the individual girl’s background of how they got in to playing hockey, their influences and inspirations. What position they played and why.

After which we heading out for a relaxing 5km run. What I liked most about this was the atmosphere, there was no pressure to run fast and no one was competing against each other. We ran up towards Regent’s park and despite the rain it didn’t dampen the mood. Everyone carried on running and chatting.

Half way through the run when we stopped to take a photo afterwards the the hockey girls took us through some simple drills before running back to HQ.

Back at the office we were treated with some delicious healthy food, juices and coco water. It was also another opportunity for more chatting amongst the group and again a very relaxed atmosphere.
