What's Girls on the Run? It's SO much fun!

If you've read the Pink Locker Society books you know that I'm a runner. I like to run even though, at first, I didn't think I'd be able to do it. If you want to run, you can do it, too.

One great thing about running is that you can go at your own pace and, except for sneakers, you really don't need any special equipment. You can run around a track, in your neighborhood, or even do laps in your backyard. You don't have to race anyone (though this can be fun, too). Bit by bit, run by run, you can get stronger, faster, and better.

In lots of towns and cities, girls also can join a group called Girls on the Run. That's a running club just for girls that helps you train to run a 5K race. The 5K is a big celebration and it truly is so much fun. Girls on the Run doesn't just want to train runners, it wants to help girls grow up being healthy and feeling GREAT about themselves and the future.

Do we have any runners out there? How about girls who'd like to get started running?

Think pink!

I am not to good at running but in a cross-country race i was picked for a sub for another girl who could not make it, so i stepped in i was really nervous but the coach told me to just have fun because i had not trained, and it did not matter what i came as long as i had fun! so i did it and did pretty good everyone was so pleased and happy for me and are team got silver. And as i said i wasn't that good at running but had a brilliant day!
