I am honored to join the #IfGirlsRanTheWorld movement to empower women and girls all around the world! Through my affiliation with FitApproach as a Sweat Pink ambassador, I received a free race registration.
Last month I discussed my role with #IfGirlsRanTheWorld and provided some information about the event. Today I want to provide more information about the upcoming event, share my fundraising progress and let you know how I’ll be racking up the miles next month!
What is #IfGirlsRanTheWorld?
“This October, join us as we collectively and virtually run around the world raising funds and awareness to empower girls globally. Whether you run once or everyday, raise $10 or $10,000, your time, effort, energy and voice will change lives and build communities all over the world. Run wherever and whenever and track your miles through Strava or MapMyFitness during the month long virtual challenge to add to our collective progress. Share your story with friends and family to raise funds for the cause that means the most to you. Although worlds apart, we are in this together. Virtually, anything is possible.”
Yup, it’s that simple! Log your miles anytime and anyplace in October to help support this awesome initiative!
I’m still fundraising for The Hunger Project.
“A world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity, our mission is to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.”
In addition, World Food Day also happens to be in October – just another reason I am happy to support The Hunger Project
How I’ll be participating in October
It will be pretty easy for me to rack up the miles in October considering that is my last full training month before the NYC Marathon! In October, I’ll continue running 4 days a week. I also plan on doing THREE half marathons (as part of my long runs) in addition to all my other runs. If all goes well and I complete all of my scheduled runs, I should log between 155-157 miles in October!
