Up for a run?

4 Nov

If you’re going to be in the SF Bay Area on Sat December 1st, and you’re up for a run (5K, to be precise) with a buddy, please check out Girls on the Run of the Bay Area’s annual Girls on the Run 5K in SF: http://www.gotrbayarea.org/sanfranciscofamily5k/index.asp.

Girls on the Run “educate[s] and build[s] confidence in young girls through non-competitive, curriculum-based running programs in San Francisco, Marin, Alameda, San Mateo, and Contra Costa Counties” (http://www.gotrbayarea.org/index.asp).

And while it’s not explicit in their mission, GOTR ends up providing broader access to the sport for girls from lower-income families and communities, who might not have readily available running programs and coaches.

Not a bad way to spend a morning…
