Fly Girls into Football

England v Slovenia Match at Wembley

Ms Rose Blossom was given some tickets for the World Cup qualifier match for Thursday 5th October, the first task was thinking who will attend, pondering whether some of our writing community groups would like to attend and maybe be inspired to write a creative story on a football match if not some standard reporting or would the Fly Girls take up the offer.

Who needs reasons to run?

Bolt-on Inspirations

Amanda Epe
inspired meeting Usain Bolt

The Great North Run the world's largest half marathon with over 43,000 competitors took place today. These marathon runners need not be convinced on the benefits to run their 13 miles, neither do the track athletes and champions we have recently spectated over the World Athletics Championships London 2017, but for some of us to take that first step or to keep going we need motivation to just do it. Usain Bolt stated that he wanted to be remembered as one of the greatest athletes ever in sport, but also as a laid back fun-loving person who inspires others. He has incontestably inspired millions!

Why Diversity for Fly Girls

Fun Fitness Activities

FlyGirls at Willesden Sports Centre

The Fly Girls are a fun focused fitness community, we exercise purely for our wellbeing with our main activity being running (not racing), jogging or simply walking. Taking advantage of the summertime today we went back to childhood, the beginners that we are went back to basics in cycling. The sun was out and there was a fresh cool breeze cooling down any nerves and fears of falling off our bikes. They say you never forget what you learnt as a child, and that theory proved true today for the Fly Girls, starting off with wobbles before we found our feet and began cycling laps around the race track. Here's some findings from today:

Women In Sports Week 2017

Inter-activities in Brent

Fly Girls at Wembley Stadium 18--6-17
Monday 19th - 25th June is national Women In Sports week to raise awareness of those playing, delivering, volunteering and watching sport to promote sports for women across the UK. There are various activities in Brent for girls and women, many run on Sundays ( pun intended Fly Girls run every Sunday) such as the various women's football clubs and training for women at Preston Manor School or Vale Farm Sports Centre to name two. As we get into summer it is an ideal time to find activities locally and get out and about.

The Color Run at Wembley

Happy Running

Fly Girls Running Community
at The Color Run- Wembley
The Fly Girls Running Community a women only beginner running group entered their first ever group run in a regional running event on Sunday 11th June. We decided to enter as the theme of this race - be happy, be healthy- aligned with our groups running agenda's. Most of our members joined the Fly Girls group to run to improve their wellbeing, to get the feel good factor after a run, to release stress, all of which are for good mental health. We are a fun run group and not racing takes the stress of running competitively, therefore this London running event was ideal for us.
