One Year Runniversary


Today marks 365 days since I began running. It’s become a way of life for me, and I’m so incredibly glad I was introduced to Black Girls Run (BGR). I started this running thing and kept at it because of a great community of women committed to personal fitness.

WEEK 1 Monday: Think, ain’t no way I’m signing up for a race. Tuesday: Think about how all your BGR friends will be having a girls’ weekend without you.

This Running Thing


This running thing started in July and has actually continued somewhat consistently. The farthest I’ve run is six miles, and I even participated in a marathon relay last year. The relay was brutal. Right before the holidays I found lots of excuses not to get up at 4:30am to run (and valid, reasonable excuses mind you, like it’s too cold and it’s always too early), and as a result, I really hadn’t run at all…
