Coach Blogs: Cherry Crest

With an upbeat, vivacious, positive group of 15 girls at Cherry Crest this spring, we as coaches are excited to be here!  Meeting up with our girls on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons is the highlight of our week!  See Cherry Crest updates each week at:

“These first few weeks of being a first time GOTR coach has been fantastic! The girls give us a lot of energy, enthusiasm, and support for the lesson at hand. Their absolute disgust when someone says something unfavorable is my favorite; they absolutely won’t stand for negativity. This has been such a great experience so far!”  –Coach Dana Day








“My first time coaching for Girls on the Run couldn’t have been a better experience than with the Cherry Crest group!  The girls have an amazing amount of energy and I’m so proud of how they all seem to bond together, encourage each other and never seem to let any one girl left on their own.  They truly demonstrate in every way what it means to be a Girl on the Run!  It makes me proud to be one of their coaches!”  –Coach Erin Rice









“After 10 years of being a GOTR coach and running buddy, I am increasingly proud to be a part of such an incredible program!  To be a part of this movement, and this change in my student’s lives, has enriched my own life and sense of being.  Surrounded by such positivity, encouragement and love on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon’s is something I look forward to all week.  Their energy and beautiful spirit has changed my life and I feel so lucky to be a part of our Cherry Crest team this Spring!   I am able to form friendships and close bonds with these girls and their families and I feel blessed to have each and every one of them in my life.  The power of coming together to celebrate our strength, our uniqueness and our individuality is an incredible rush!  At the end of each week, I enjoy posting photos and updates on our GOTR Cherry Crest blog as well as sending out a newsletter to parents, giving curriculum updates, suggested books to read, facts and statistics about girls in society, as well as conversation starters and questions that can open the lines of communication between parents and girls at home.  In this ever-changing world, these girls need to feel stability, power and strength from within; to prove to themselves how truly incredible and how truly strong they are!” –Coach Brooke Stover
