Girls on the Run is so much fun!

I volunteered this year for Girls on the Run Central KY and it was life changing. I am currently a college student studying Nursing, so I was a little nervous about being with a group of 3rd-5th grades girls as I have not been in a group of this sorts in some time. The GOTR team was so helpful, accommodating and really made the experience amazing for me, as a coach, and for my team! Throughout the season, it was so rewarding getting to see how each one of the girls on my team, and myself grew and learned from one another! The girls on my team gained confidence in themselves, learned about “I feel” statements, accomplished a community service project, and gained so many life lessons that I know they will carry on with them. I think GOTR is a worth while organization and I just wish every girl had the opportunity to learn about themselves and others. All the practices, running at the 5k and watching as each girl finished her 5K will be memories and lessons that I will carry with me.
