And, now onto equally important things…
The school I teach at has been participating with Girls on the Run for the last 5 years and I am so excited to announce that I am joining in this year as a coach!
If you aren’t familiar with GOTR, here’s a little info:
Girls on the Run® is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies, complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.
Our first practice was on Tuesday and it was so much fun! We have a really amazing group of girls and I can’t wait to watch them grow and improve! Today is practice #2 and I am really looking forward to it 🙂 I will keep you all updated as the practices go on!
Does your town have a GOTR program?
