Girls On The Run Fall 5K

Saturday's workout: Girls On The Run 5K
Monday a.m. workout: Insanity: Pure Cardio

This year's GOTR Fall 5K was a great success!

The morning started out chilly but warmed up to be a perfect day for a race! 

The girls all arrived early enough to get their faces painted, hair sprayed different colors, decorate tiaras and dance to get warmed up.

A few of the teams meeting pre race

And then it was time to run!

I was the running buddy for one of the girls on my team. Each girl runs with an adult (parent, friend, coach, etc.) so that they have encouragement the entire way. There were times she struggled, but watching her spring across the finish line was so fun!

All of the girls did an AMAZING job! I am so proud of each and every one of them. Watching these girls finish their first 5k - and something they have been working towards for 10 weeks - is so inspiring to me. It chokes me up each season.

Way to go girls!

  1. Yay, congrats to all your girls. I think this is such a cool thing to do. Unfortunately there's no GOTR where I live, only London, or I'd be on it!!! ;)
