Ronnie and I are happy to announce that we’ve joined forces with the Black Girls Run movement. We’ll be participating in their inaugural 5K & 10K race here in Atlanta on September 16th, and we’re calling all couples to join us. The co-ed race will be a great opportunity for you and your spouse to join us for a great cause (food insecurity), and to celebrate our relationships at the same time.
Now, we’re not runners by any stretch of the imagination but we have been working out together as we work towards becoming a healthier couple. Training for the Black Girls Run race gives us an opportunity to extend our fitness routine and to spend more time together. We’ll give you regular updates on our progress as we move closer to the September 16th race date, and we want you to do the same.
Below is a video of our first training run together. After you check that out, make sure you scroll down for details on how to join our team for the race. Be sure to check back often as we provide real training tips that will aid your preparation.
