Girls On The Run is a National Organization for elementary/middle school girls focused on girl empowerment through a program that includes running - and ultimately recognizing their GIRL POWER by running a real 5k.
Like hundreds of people run - it is open to the community and is really a great time.
That little pumpkin smiling big in the front left - NEVER wants her picture taken.
That is the power of GOTR.
And why I believe, as Bob Ross said:
The happy accident here was one of the mystery boxes we opened at the luncheon.
It contained a certificate for three training sessions and nine cycling sessions at a place called Bodies by Burgoon. I thought about it for a while and finally set up an account and emailed them to get started in July.
Then they asked me - what is my intention? And I thought about it and realized that I wanted to run with my daughter. Not someone else being her running buddy at the GOTR 5k.
And so today - even on Fabulous Friday - I am in pain peeps.
I worked out HARD yesterday and my muscles are sobbing, but I still parked 3/4 of a mile from my desk and walked up every painful flight of stairs. Because I want to be smiling in that picture this fall too.
Have a great weekend!
