Today was my first ever practice as a running coach for Girls on the Run! I am so excited about coaching 3rd and 4th grade girls and I wanted to spread the word about this amazing program with everyone. Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization in U.S. and Canada (and expanding!) focused on primary-aged girls. The girls come to practice twice per week and learn a lot about respecting others, appreciating themselves, and having fun all while running! The program culminates in a 5k at the end of the season. Every girl gets a running buddy, who is a volunteer from the community to run the 5k with. They are always looking for future coaches and volunteers in general.
