Girls on the Run is an AMAZING non-profit that I have talked about before.  Last May, I ran in their 5k and blogged about it here.  I had SOO much fun running in this 5k, I knew I wanted to be a bigger part of this organization.

I am so honored and happy to share that I am now volunteering as a coach for 11 beautiful young girls.  I meet with them twice a week for 10 weeks and at the end of 10 weeks, we all run in a 5k together.  We have had 2 practices so far and I am already so touched by these sweet girls.  I will be taking pics and posting more later, but for now I encourage anyone to check it out and see about volunteering in your area (there are chapters all over the US).

If you live in SF and want to run in a 5k, let me know!! They have running buddies who volunteer to run with the girls the day of the 5k and I would love to have any of you paired up with some of my girls!  Let me know in the comments if you are interested in the 5k or being a buddy!!

You are such an inspiration! I've never run a marathon but have always wanted to. I actually used to run with my dad when I was living in France but totally stopped since I moved to the UK. I just can't seem to get back to it. Reading blog posts like yours help :)

And can we talk about the fact you're going to be mentoring young girl? This is such a great experience for both you and them! Can't wait to read more about that.
