So as I mentioned in an earlier post, now that I’m done with the Disney Princess 5K, I’m looking for a new race. I started a 10K training program last week, so I thought, why not look for a 10K race in May some time? That’s exactly what I did.
On May 20th there is a 10K race in Ypsilanti, MI. It’s the Girls on the Run 5K/10K race. Girls on the Run is a program that encourages young girls to develop healthy lifestyles and self-respect through running. They focus on all aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being. Their “mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.”
I loved what the program inspires and it will be another race for me to do. Plus, I don’t have to fly to Florida of this one, haha. I also like that the run focuses on a specific program and that the program is designed to promote healthy life styles.
As of right now I have not committed to it. After all, I don’t know what I’m doing in May yet, but at least I have something to work for and keep me motivated these next couple of months! Also, check out the events page. I will be listing all the races I’m planning on doing and have done there.
