As one of the original founding members of Girls Just Wanna Run, the race has given me and other women of all ages and abilities the opportunity to come together for one day for the sake of our health and welfare. Personally, this run was my first attempt EVER at running and sadly enough I was 39 years of age. The training through the Litchfield Athletic Club was a great start and I loved meeting other women like me. Some of those ladies are still my friends today and we still take part in the race. Running the GJWR 5K , started my journey of running and I forever grateful. The support and encouragement along the race course was truly electrifying.. Running with my friends and fellow Jr's made all the difference. The sea of pink women has left a lasting impression. Go on girls, sign up, what do you have to lose!
