Join Me at the Girls On The Run Manhattan 5K!

On June 5, I'll be volunteering as a Running Buddy for the Girls on the Run 5K at Asphalt Green and I'd love for you to join me. 

Girls on the Run is an awesome non-profit that uses running to teach pre-teen girls about self-respect and healthy living.  The girls train twice a week for twelve weeks, and, through their training, they're taught to stretch themselves physically, emotionally, mentally and socially.  The program culminates in a 5K race.  The girls are encouraged to set their own goals for the race rather than race competitively.  During the race, each girl is paired with a Running Buddy who runs/walks alongside them and cheers them on. 

I'm very excited for this event.  If you're interested in volunteering, I've included a link here with more information.  Shoot me an email ( or leave a note in the comments if you plan on going!  I'd love to see you there.
