Two days to go until the 5K this weekend! It’s amazing to think about all the learning, training, and hard work that our girls and so many other across the US have put in to prepare for this weekend. As a first time coach and full-on believer in the awesomeness of girls, I can’t wait to see them shine!
To celebrate this and the spirit of Girls on the Run, my company Activyst has teamed up with Girls on the Run to design a limited edition “Get It Girl” tank. Each tank sold funds one girl’s food and drink for a week in Girls on the Run. So when you buy this tank, you help fuel the next season of strong, healthy, and happy girls.
I remember the first time someone told me to “get it girl.” I was running a 10K in Washington, DC, and was about to start climbing the hardest hill of the race. That’s when I heard a woman in the crowd yell “get it girl!” It gave me a jolt of energy and the encouragement to go for it, and made me feel like we’re all in this together. That’s what I want all the Girls on the Run to feel this weekend. Empowered, supported, and equipped to go for it.
I’ll be at the race this weekend so come say hi at our Activyst booth. We’re handing out “Get It Girl” cheering signs and will have our awesome tees and tank available for purchase. All sales at the event support Girls on the Run – Puget Sound.
And to all the girls running this weekend. GET IT GIRL!
