Running Clinc with BGR- Yes, Black Girls do Run

Today was the running clinic with my Black Girls Run crew. This was the second time we meet to get ready for the Road to Wellness 5k. Everyone is at a different fitness level but we all are working together to make our 5k the best one ever!


The 3rd annual Road to Wellness 5K Walk/Run is aimed at inspiring mind, body and spiritual health through fitness and exercise while embracing Roxbury’s rich history, diverse culture and strong sense of community. The Road to Wellness 5k is anticipated to engage over 1,000 participants from over 200 surrounding communities to unite runners and walkers in their pursuit of wellness. The collaboration of The Dimock Center, Hood Fit, and the B.A.A. will expose participants to holistic health approaches through fitness resources, community events and experiential fitness clinics.
