I am always impressed by those who use their "love of the sport" and put it to good use. In this day and age, girls have every right that boys have when it comes to being involved in sports thanks to Title Nine. Sports are a great way for girls to feel strong, connect with other girls that have the same passion and build strong self esteem. When I heard about "Girls on the Run" 3 or 4 years ago, I wanted to get involved but I had my own girls to raise and they were heavy into soccer. What Monika Carlson has done with this group is AMAZING and I hope it inspires you to get involved with your community through your "love of the sport"!
What is your most memorable event and one you would LOVE to forget?
Advise to other young female athletes who run and have big dreams and goals for themselves? . . . Have an open mind and just try! Don't underestimate yourself and what you are capable of. You will be amazed by what you can do with a positive attitude, a goal, and a plan.
