Okay, I got my 5K walk/run completed yesterday!! I did so much better than I thought I would. I'm very happy with my time of 39:47. Can't wait to see how I improve next month.

Did my walk/run more like walk...time is 57:59, I took a pic but unh-unh I don't think I'm posting it, lol! It's super blurry because of the sweat and sunshine, etc....maybe I will,maybe I will,lmbo! Anyhow...I'm going to try to improve that time sometime during the week. This was an outside effort, but I want to see if I can get a better time inside on a treadmill without the hills.

Hey Ladies!!!!! I'm in! I just registered too. I will practice today and again on Saturday. Much success to everyone. Guess I should go get me some new shoes now. . .

Okay, I've joined the race, but will be walking. Have yet to find my passion for running as I do with walking. I'm more of a Leslie Walker. I often walk in the comforts of home. If/When it's not to hot or late I'll walk outside.

Hey, sorry for the confusion! I thought you wanted pictures of us while we are running of some sort! Sure, I can take a stand still picture of myself after I finish running.

The DC group of BGR have runs on Saturday's, Sunday's and many during the week through out the DC, Maryland and Virginia area. What a lot of ladies do is post in our group, where they live and times they would like to run during the week. From there, they link up.

I do not have time or interest in really leading a run but thanks for the invite! Another girl from my area BGR has opted to start running with me this month but I have not heard back from her so until I do or don't, I'll keep running on my own.


I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)

I am all for encouraging each other on the race wall... encouragement and visibility are what makes BGR! such an amazing organization.

I know newer cell phones have a feature where you can take a pic of yourself.... or you could try it in the mirror.

As for your running buddy, maybe this is an opportunity for you to lead runs ini your area. If you are interested, you could contact the BGR! Ambassadors on FB (Margaux Mays, Renita James, or Toni Jones) and set something up that works for you. You would be surprised at the number of people who will come out simply because the time/location you select works for them, too.

Hello Ladies,

I'm in the Virtual Race for a 10k Run. I also posted a quaint note for US (Black Girls RUN!) on the race wall! Please, let's support each other by posting an encouraging note on the race wall!

Problem*** I run alone NOW b/c my BGR buddy went back to work. I am not sure if I can get a photo of myself. And, I record my distance/time on my phone so I am not sure how I can take a pic of this also!

The members of Black Girls RUN! Sparkpeople are invited to participate in our 1st monthly virtual race. Virtual races allow us to race together no matter where we are geographically located or how much money we can afford to donate/register for a race event. Simply map out your own route, complete your race, and then share your results. Here's how:

1. Go to: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/virtual
-race-home.asp
2. Register for the Aug 19-25, 2012 Virtual Race
3. Click the "Join This Race Now" button
4. Complete your registration by indicating the race you plan to do and division.
5. Once you finish your own race during the week listed, share your results on the race wall,on the Virtual Race page, post a message to the Race Wall (something that mentions Black Girls RUN!), and post your info on this message board.

*** In true BGR spirit, photo documentation of completion would be ideal... so take a pic of your distance/time and post it in our team photos.

Run your own race.... 1 mile, 5K, 8K, 10K, 1/2 marathon, etc. Just do your very best. We look forward to celebrating with you at the finish line.
