GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 01/22/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
OH NO WHAT HAVE I SIGNED UP FOR NOW! Well, I am running my first Marathon in one of my favorite places (NYC) on November 4, 2018 in support of Girls on the Run NYC. I am nervous about all these miles but uplifted about the opportunities running this race and supporting GOTR NYC can provide for young girls. In 2018, more than 1,500 girls in NYC will participate in GOTR. Running truly has been life changing for me. It helps relieve anxiety and stress and gets me through all the chaos and crazy of daily living. Running also allowed me to connect more to my body, the outdoors everywhere, my neighborhood and neighbors and my inner spirit. Through all the miles run to date, I have built great friendships and confidence. I hope that by putting myself through this fun test I can help open young girls to what is possible in a healthy and supportive space that GOTR provides.
