Choosing the right nail polish can be just as important a race day tradition as wearing your favorite socks or lucky hair tie.
A few years ago, I signed up to be a volunteer coach at Girls on the Run (GOTR). If you aren’t familiar with Girls on the Run, it’s an afterschool program for girls grades 3-5 that teaches participants important life skills while training for a 5K. I’m pretty sure I got more out of the program than the elementary school girls on my team did. The program has been updated a bit since I last coached, but the lessons have stayed with me over the years. In fact, I think most of the lessons taught at GOTR are lessons grown-up girls could benefit from doing, too!
Here are five lessons I learned from being a GOTR coach.
