This week we launched the #ELLEfit Run Club to ELLE Insiders, and invited some friends of ELLE along too. Team ELLE has been running together for about two years; it has brought us closer as a team and helped us get fitter and healthier too. (It also gets us out of the office for a full hour every Wednesday lunchtime.)
Trainer Tim Weeks led us on a 6km run (it honestly felt like less) over The Thames, past the London Eye, up to Buckingham Palace and back to ELLE HQ. We lit the way with plenty of glow sticks, while music en route helped give the run a party atmosphere.
Glaceau SmartWater provided running refreshment, while SaVse smoothies were waiting for us back at the office. New food brand Rooted supplied some much needed post-run high-protein balls.
Want to join us for the next free #ELLEfit Run Club, exclusive for ELLE Insiders on Wednesday 18 February? Each month will be completely different! Make sure to subscribe to the magazine to become an ELLE Insider now. We'll be releasing the sign-up information soon.
In the meantime, we made a video to explain exactly why we love to run. Hopefully it will motivate you to join us, or start your own run club with colleagues or friends...
