Getting ready to go out to Delaware Park today to take part in the New Balance girls on the Run 5k. This active event is a no brainer in my book. What better way to spend my Thursday afternoon after a long day of work than to be running for a cause that benefits girls of all ages. I have two younger sisters who i encourgage to be active on a daily basis. It’s great to hear of organizations providing oppurtunities for young girls to be active. New Balance is doing something pretty neat in Buffalo today and i think im going to check it out. I’ll have pics and video posted soon. And check back for an awesome article on nutrition during the workout along with an article description on the Slideboard Leg Curl.
Post – Race Recap
So I was able to participate in the New Balance Girls on the Run first annual 5k yesterday. It was a pleasure to take part in such a special event. I was very impressed with not only the race course, but the supporters, affiliated sponsors, the attendance and most importantly the cause. There are many positive lessons behind the New Balance Girls on the Run program. Part of the program is to teach young girls to adopt a healthy lifestyle by setting an active objective. The goal was to run a 5k on June 15th in one of Buffalo’s main site for fun and activity. Over 250 young ladies lined up behind the start line in Delaware Park on a Thursday afternoon to a run/walk a distance of 3.1 miles. It was a spectacular demonstration of companionship, sportsmanship and goal setting. Over 700 participants came to show support by running, walking and cheering their young girls across the finish line. The race also fits behind many of my own personal beliefs and I was glad to be a part of it. The race was organized by Vicki Mitchell.
