Bring a Snack!

I don’t know about you, but I am also starving when the school bell rings. Although your coaches will be giving you a light snack either before or after practice, you may still be hungry. Making sure you have a healthy snack to eat either right before or right after practice can help you feel better after your run. Plus, it just tastes good!

So what should you bring?

Try one of these: a piece of fruit, some string cheese, a handful of cereal like Cheerios, some nuts, or anything else that you like that’s healthy!

Hey Girls! Want to Beat Coach Pete?

This Spring 2013 season, Girls on the Run has been invited to be a part of Boise State University’s Beat Coach Pete Scholarship Run/Walk on April 13, 2013. 
 

What is Beat Coach Pete? 

Beat Coach Pete is a 3-mile (5K) race that starts in front of the Boise State Student Recreation Center on the campus of Boise State University, and finishes at Bronco Stadium near the famous Blue Turf!  Boise State head football coach, Chris Petersen runs in the event and for everybody who beats him to the finish line, he donates back to the scholarship fund at Boise State.

As an added bonus for Girls on the Run, we will be partnering with Boise State Athletics to have some of their competitive athletes join us as running buddies with our girls on the day of the race!
