Fly Girls at The Vitality Big Half London Marathon

Fly Girls Weather the Storm

BBC Clip on The Big Half Vitality Run



Two weeks ago on Sunday 10th March a few of our team were anxious as for most it was their first ever half marathon. Fly Girls Running Community are a beginners running group that meets on Sunday mornings for a run around Wembley Stadium, ten signed up to do the 13.5mile run as a group and others separately for alternative distance runs scheduled for the day. The motivation for our team to do this was the knowledge that your peers were with you on the route, regardless of the distance you were from each other during the race. Having entered the 5km and 10km races locally and London wide the next progressive step was to try this race out, but by no means was anyone under pressure to enter.

'Becoming' A book by Michelle Obama

Becoming an author
Accomplished could have easily been an alternative title for Michelle Obama's debut book 'Becoming'. We are taken back to her childhood and growing up in the first chapter and mostly throughout part one. So detailed was this section that it could have the reader wondering whether or not this would be an autobiography rather than a memoir of becoming the First Lady and the First Black First Lady. Michelle nee Robinson was a fastidious student and she recalls her determination to be her best in education from her first days at school in spelling quizzes. Her parents had sacrificed enormously for their children's education, Michelle and her older brother Craig, their background was the building blocks for both of them to excel academically, Michelle going on to Ivy League institutions.

What was and is to come

It's been a while since the last post on this blog, and what a great year 2018 has been for Fly Girls Wellness services with our running and writing communities. Our work empowering women has had a significant successful impact on members and inspiring others in the wider community. Two participants of the writing workshops have published their debut books at the end of the year.

Writing and Wellbeing

Writing as a Social Therapy
Are you a writerholic, who like many others and myself use the process to clear your mind, make sense of situations and the past? Many writers are addicts to pen and paper and for this reason it is their therapy. It brings clarity to their thoughts as writers dig into their subconscious. As writers express themselves and become real with their words there is a remarkable transformation of feelings. Expressing your truth is simple yet it can be the most difficult thing to do in this life. That said life writers feel a sense of pride in writing to share their stories to the public. It could be healing from trauma, speaking about taboo issues, revisiting your family history for understanding self or simply celebrating the ups and downs of life's journeys.
