I simply LOVE my local BGR chapter.

I lead group runs 2x a week and this helps me stay on the right track. I ran through the winter, in all sorts of weather, because of the group run experience.

I'm so glad that I found a BGR Group here in Indianapolis! We had a great run/walk this morning!

Fortunately, I discovered we had one here in Greensboro, NC. I agree totally with Star. The Facebook BGR is the next best thing. emoticon

A few ladies have asked about the BGR group in your areas, so here is a global answer.... you have a couple options for locating a group. (This is a repost.)

1. Go to www.blackgirlsrun.com
Register on the site so you can check out the events and running groups in your area. You don't have to track anything on there... its just a central location for finding local running groups, dates, & times.

2. Search for Black Girls Run on Facebook; there may be a group page for BGR in your area. I know we have group page for Chicago and there is one for Atlanta.

While it is a bummer to not have a group already established in your area, consider the option of being an ambassador/run coordinator in your area. You don't have to be a track star or triathlete... you just have to be willing to set/honor a date, time, meeting location, and route for weekly runs.

When I started with BGR, I had no plans to coordinate runs... now I coordinate 2 of the 4 days that I run each week. I suggested a route in my neighborhood that had some features our seasoned runners were looking for as they prepare for the BGR national event in September. The route I suggested has hills & winding roads, and since I was familiar with it, I was asked to coordinate the runs.

You will be surprised at the number of women who are willing/able to run at the same time that works for you. Give it some thought, pray about it, and if you are remotely interested in learning more about getting started send me an email.

They have absolutely nada for Washington state which is a real bummer. However, I did sign up for the FB page today.
