Girls on the Run

Running has played a pretty important role in my life and I truly am passionate about turning everyone I meet into a runner and/or a triathlete:)

I recently started volunteering with "Girls on the Run" which is a program that teaches girls self esteem through running - pretty darn cool.  It is a national program that is distributed locally through elementary schools.  We had our celebratory 5K a couple weeks back which was pretty amazing - over 100 elementary school girls running a 5K and supporting each other to the finish line - powerful stuff.  The program was featured last night on NBC Nighlty News.

If you are interested in learning more - shoot me a note or chech out the website for Girls in the Run Franklin County.  Also - here is a picture of the Girls on the Run team that I was working with this Spring....
