I signed up to be an assistant coach at a school where I was substitute teacher. I wanted to build experience as a student teacher and having been a runner since I was a teenager it seemed like a no brainer. What I discovered was GOTR was so much more than a running program. The girls on our team grew more confident, self assured and proud every week. I think I got more out of it than those girls, as I immersed myself in positive affirmations, funny celebratory dances, and bonds with other women and girls. It is really transformative.
