“Gratitude is an attitude.”
At Girls On The Run, we talk about this important lesson and how it helps us get out of the “Girl Box.” If you are a girl, I am sure you have an idea of what the Girl Box is all about, but for the sake of clarification let’s break it down. The Girl Box is the box we get caught up in that says we have to look a certain way, talk a certain way, have certain friends, things, thoughts, etc.. Basically all of the things that box us in from embracing our authentic selves and experiencing the joy that comes with being confident in ourselves.
As an expression of my gratitude for the amazing organization that is Girls On the Run, I have made the commitment as a SoleMate to do some charity fundraising over the summer and early fall. In November I will be running the Shiner Beer Half Marathon and plan to spend the next few months running, writing about my running, running some more, telling you all how grateful I am for all the running I am doing, running a little more, and asking you to encourage me through generous donations to my campaign. Oh, and then I’ll wrap it all up by a little more running.
I am looking forward to sharing this journey with each of you.
