Why go to a sappy holiday movie when you can get your cry on at the finish line of the Girls on the Run 5k?!

This morning 155 girls from across the city ran a 5k around Seward Park… finishing their goal after 10 weeks of the fall Girls on the Run program.  This was my first time as part of the coaching crew at John Muir Elementary School and it was a great time playing and getting to know these girls, seeing their struggles and their brilliance.

If you want to be involved they will be looking for coaches (a 10 week commitment) and running buddies (2 day commitment) in the spring again.  Also.. this is a fantastic organization run by some pretty smart women and if not all of your holiday dollars have been spent on other worthy causes.. please donate.
