We Believe...You and Your Crew RUN This TOWN!
In addition to spotlighting athletes, we'll also be highlighting local groups who are training for this year's
the OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon
! We'd like to continue our spotlight series this week with Black Girls RUN! Columbus (BGR! Columbus).
According to a recent Runner's World article, although most people think of running as a solitary sport, there's power to the pack. Running with others expands the definition of "possible". Being surrounded by others with the same lofty goals, keeps you chasing the challenge. It also holds you accountable and less likely to hit snooze.
Who They Are: A group of African American women ranging in ages 18-60+ who get together during the week and on weekends at various locations throughout the city to walk, run or do both.
What It Costs: The cost is only of time, energy, and support to help one another on a journey toward health and fitness.
Words We Live By: "No Woman Is Left Behind"! Always there for each other, there is an unbreakable bond and network of support.
