One of the questions we get asked a lot is "Do you think I can really do this?" Short answer is yes.
I think that is one of the things that drew Girls Run the 901 together. Six girls with lofty goals for themselves in running and we figured out we could actually achieve them and enjoy it! Something I have always loved about this sport is people watching at races. Runners are such a diverse group of people and I always feel so proud to be a small part of the running community. I love that no matter your shape, height, age, or quickness, everybody is capable of being out there and getting a run in!
There are so many organizations within the Memphis community believe you can do it as well. If you truly have a desire to get out there and figure out the best way to get started there are so many resources in Memphis to help you get there and get started. Even once you get started, groups runs or a running buddy have a way of keeping you accountable and for some make the run more enjoyable. Tomorrow, we will share with you some of the resources in the 901, online, etc to get you going on the right track.
Until then, please know WE BELIEVE IN YOU and absolutely, without a doubt, think you can be a runner.
