All about GIRLS

Gazelle Girl 2017

I am on a Runners HIGH right now. Getting to pace at the Gazelle Girl has been a highlight of my spring so far. I LOVE sharing "RUN LOVE" !!! Since I first ran the Gazelle Girl 1/2 Marathon 3 Years ago. I have been EMPOWERED by all the STRONG women out their running. They all have different goals and race paces but it doesn't matter b/c everyone out their is supporting each other.  

Girls on the Run 2017

This Spring I have had the privilege of hanging out with 17 3rd-5th grades who are participating in Girls on the Run. I LOVE this program. It is all about empowering young women, helping them learn how to handle tough situations, deal with emotions, family and friends.  Showing them that they are strong by training them for their CELEBRATION 5k at the end of season.  

What do Gazelle Girls and GOTR Girls have in common? Well many of things we learn/teach in GOTR can be used for the rest of our lives. Communication, dealing with tough situations, training to run. These things just get harder as we get older. As a GOTR coach it is my hope that someday they will all be STRONG Gazelle Girls !!! Maybe even running 1/2 Marathons and Marathons :)
