Girls on the Run



Girls on the Run is an amazing nationally run program. The mission of Girls on the Run is to strengthen girls (ages 8-11) physically, emotionally and socially in preparation for adolescence. I am excited that there is a chapter in Seattle, Girls on the Run Puget Sound.

Girls on the Run is a 12 week program that uses the physical activity of running to empower girls and increase their confidence levels at an early age. The programs include running training to build up to run a 5k and other self-esteem boosting lessons.

You can check out the curriculum and a typical day here.

I am a big fan of this program and would highly recommend that you check it out if you have girls ages 8-11.
