I ran a 5k after training with Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is so much fun. It is a running program. I love to run, and I think this program is amazing. I love my coaches. They’re so nice. This program is great because you learn to be a good friend to others who participate and much more.

You get to run a 5k, which is 5 kilometers. A 5k is 3.1 miles, and you get a medal when you finish. It took me 32 minutes. No joke, I mean it. No lie.

I am definitely doing Girls on the Run next season. I am so excited to run the 5k. I can’t wait. Girls on the Run is truly so much fun. Join your club of Girls on the Run at your school, and if they don’t have one, start one!
