THE STORY:

Why Girls on the Run? As a girl I was outrageously self-conscious. I was known for walking down the halls with my head looking at my feet (which looked like penguin feet). I aged faster than most of my peers, and hated that my body didn't look like anyone elses. I was on diets starting in junior high (hello, Slim Fast), and remember crying on many occasions because I thought I was fat.

 

My dad coached track, my brother was a sprinter, and I hated running more than anything in the world. Wearing spandex is the last thing a girl who has big hips at age 10 wants to do, so I looked for every excuse I could to get out of running. Even in high school I got doctor's notes to get out of running the mile as often as I could in gym class.

If I'd had a program like GOTR to help me feel better about my body, my struggles with friends, and all the other misery that comes with being a pre-teen girl, I probably wouldn't have spent 20 years of my life dieting. 

Who runs the world? Girls. Helping girls love who they are, learn how to be confident, and learn how to build each other up rather than tear each other down. That's why I'm running to raise money for Girls on the Run Chicago, and I could not be more proud to be a SoleMate.
