Angela is 30 and has lived on New Braiswick Park for 5 years. Formally a city worker, she became a personal trainer 2 years ago, and is passionate about helping people get fit and keep fit. Angela is a run director at Colchester Castle parkrun, a free 5km timed run every Saturday morning in Castle Park at 9am: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/colchestercastle/, and Colchester Trainer for Goodgym, a free running club that encourages people to get involved in their local community by doing practical tasks for community projects, or committing to visit an isolated older person on their run. www.goodgym.org.
As a personal trainer, one of my biggest frustrations is seeing people not moving at all, or running before they can walk, so she has joined BFF to help people get to know their local area by walking at the same time as the running group. And, if they want to try a bit of a run within their walk they can too. In fact, BFF on Monday night at 6pm, Goodgym group run on Wednesday night at 6:45pm (meet at Leisureworld), and parkrun, Saturday morning at 9am, makes a fantastic training program to begin with.
