About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Lehigh Valley
Project Created on: 12/05/2016
Project Type: Girl Power
My Daughter Grace has again been given the opportunity to participate in Girls On The Run of the Lehigh Valley. She'll be running a 5K race on Saturday December 10, 2017 here in Bethlehem, PA. I help to coach her team at the Elementary School. It is such a joy to see Grace and the team joyfully work together to learn not only how to run 5K but also learn so many valuable life skills along the way.
We talk about pacing our selves at GOTR so that we can breath while we are running and not become over tired needing to stop. We talk about supporting our team and our community. We talk about finding ourselves in difficult situations and needing to stop and take a "BrThRR" (STOP, BREATH, THINK, RESPOND, REVIEW). One of my favorite lessons is when we talk about helping each others star shine brightly and learning how to help blow away the clouds when needed. Of course we also train for all the girls to complete a 5K (3.1 Miles).
