Anyone can train for TOUGH MUDDER. People with one leg can train for marathons. That girl with one arm can still surf after a gruesome fight with that jerk shark.

But can just anyone support an elementary age girl for 3 miles and keep her entertained?

Fortunate for you, you personally know the #1 contender.


Girls on the Run is a life-changing, experiential learning programs for girls age eight to thirteen years old. The programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. For more information:

Recently, I have joined the Board of the South Hampton Roads affiliate chapter and will give $300 towards my goal. My donation will sponsor 2 young ladies to go through this program. All I’m asking is for a few bucks here and there to help this program available to more. Due to rules, my donation is offline, but I promise you... I stroked the check and cried a bit on the inside too.

What’s my goal you ask? It’s to raise anything above $300. Whoa, dream big! Ask yourself - would the world be a better place without healthy, strong ladies? Of course not, duh. In return, you get my training schedule.

I have to complete the following by May 19th:

  1. Read all the Twilight books and be able to eloquently defend my stance on Team Edward or Team Jacob.
  2. Listen to and memorize all of Cody Simpson’s songs. Bieber was so last year.
  3. Learn all poss pop ABBREVs.
  4. Is cheerleading considered a sport now?
  5. Research the newest flavors of Lipsmackers.
  6. HUNGER GAMES – Peeta or Gale. Yet another tough decision to defend.
  7. Research whether slap bracelets are still banned from public schools.
  8. Multiplication and division without a calculator. I don’t know if this one is going to happen.
  9. Youtube “dubstep”
  10. Apparently, there’s more than one Narnia… Is that a book or a movie? How many are there??
  11. Taylor Swift out, Adele in. Easy one. Score.
  12. Neon myself out, but only certain ones. Some neon’s are left to the 80’s. These girls weren’t even born yet.
  13. Every waking moment not spent on 1-12 must be spent watching the Disney Channel.
  14. Is Miley still around or is it her turn for Hollywod rehab?
  15. Who is Austin and Ally? According to the website - she writes, he rocks.
  16. I’ve got to figure out how to work a LeapFrog. Are they too old for that?
  17. Teen Beat. I need a life size poster of whoever is cool now, which makes it a little awkward to explain.
  18. Whatever.


It’s all about investing in the youth and leaving this place better than what it was for us. Join me.
