Fit Family Fun at Girls On the Run

Today our family is so proud of Baby Girl for completing her first 5k run.  Her school participates in Girls on the Run, which is a program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Their goal is to teach girls life skills through interactive lessons and running games to empower them to be confident while establishing a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. Hundreds of girls, teachers, parents and volunteers gathered together at Anne Arundel Community College to run the campus. You could walk, run or jog. Some girls did a combination of all three. It was amazing to see so many young ladies getting fit, being proactive to being healthy, supporting and encouraging one another.  This session is done and practice will restart for the Spring run early next year.
