I’m continually surprised by women I run with (sometimes for years) who one day tell me, “You know, the Her Times race is the reason I got into running.”
That is awesome & I want to brag about it, and I need you.
I’m looking for women who started running (or run/walking) because they participated in one of the Her Times 5K races — any of them in the last 6 years — for a photo shoot that will take place this Sunday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Penn State Behrend (meet in the big Erie parking lot, near the “Behrend Fields” sign).
The photo will go with a story in the June 3 issue of Her Times in which I try to inspire even more women to join in and challenge themselves to do the race.
I’ll also ask you to share a few words of wisdom for further inspiration!
If you can join me, I’d just ask you to wear your Her Times race shirt (whatever year you participated), running shorts (or whatever) and sneakers. We won’t be running any distance, but we may have to run a little for the cameraman, so be prepared to jog a bit.
If you can come, please post a comment or shoot me a quick email to hertimes5K@aol.
