Being a running buddy + Girls on the Run practice

As some of you know, I got involved last August with Girls on the Run Twin Cities, a new chapter of Girls on the Run International. I am on the marketing committee and lead the social media efforts. It’s been a super fun ride so far helping to get the program off of the ground here in the Cities and meeting some amazing women along the way.

The first season just kicked off back in March (with some media attention!) and it ends with the girls running a 5K on May 19. I just officially signed up to be a running buddy at the race! I’m super excited. Being a running buddy basically means that I attend a practice and run with one of the girls during her practice 5K, encouraging her along the way. Then I do the same thing on race day!

Last week the marketing committee attended one of the regular lessons and it was a blast. It was so cool to see the program in action and how much the girls loved it. Our awesome photographer got some great shots.

I’ve posted some more information about Girls on the Run here.
