Talking about Your Feelings is Healthy

Here at Girls on the Run, we encourage you to speak your mind – especially when someone is not being nice to you. But sometimes that’s easier said than done.

First of all, know that you can always talk to your Coach about what’s going on in your life. Your teacher can be a good person to talk to as well.

Finally, don’t forget to talk to your parents. They love you and want to support you.

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!
