Girls on the Run: What's next for me?

The next session of Girls on the Run is starting next month, and I still haven't decided whether I'm going to coach again. I had such a fantastic time at the 5K, and that alone made the entire coaching experience worth it.

Honestly, the only thing holding me back is selfishness. It's a commitment to show up every week for 10 weeks, and I'm usually exhausted because I go straight from work. Also, while the 5K was amazing, the actual coaching was tough. In our coach training, they made it seem like the girls are all totally into it and it's just a blast all the time, but that wasn't my experience at all. I'm sure it's partly due to the specific school I was at, and it was also middle school (the middle school GOTR program is actually called Heart & Sole, and last season was the New Orleans' chapter's first season with it so they've got some kinks to work out). I'm leaning toward definitely coaching though.

That being said, I've also registered for the Crescent City Classic 10K as a charity runner for Girls on the Run! That means that in lieu of paying a registration fee, I agree to raise $200 for GOTR. If you would like to help me reach that goal, visit my fundraising page here to donate. All proceeds go to Girls on the Run of New Orleans!

Since this ended up being a rather short post, I'll leave you with these awesome photos from the 5K that you've probably already seen! :)
