I met Alice Rixon through the beautiful platform we all know as LinkedIn. As I have come to discover over and over, what we know of people and what we see is always just a tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to uncover if we take the time and really listen.
A meetup I ran last Saturday brought a painful realisation home for me. Exercise is important not only for its touted benefits of muscular strength, endurance, improved cardiovascular system and energy to run our day.
