Stuff About Me:

I care about Girls on the Run because confidence is an invaluable skill in everyone's life, and it isn't a part of the math-English-science curriculum that we're taught in school. Training young girls to run a 5k is one of the most effective ways to build self-confidence in the girls because your ability to run is something that you built up and it is something that no one can take away from you or credit to themselves. When I first started running, I was 12 years-old and a high school girls' soccer team cheered me on. Now I have completed the Barcelona marathon. Even if I hadn't decided to take my running to longer distances, I never would have forgotten the support of those girls, and I know that no matter what paths (get it) the participants in Girls on the Run choose to take, they will take the experience with them and feel the more powerful for it.
