It’s hard to believe that we are preparing for the 3rd Annual Girls Running the World 5K & Daisy Dash. We had such a beautiful day last year and Schenectady Central Park was such a lovely location. We can’t wait to have the run again at the park on April 26, 2014.
Once again the race will be non-competitive in nature to allow for everyone to complete the 5K portion at their own pace but we will also have the time clock on hand for those who are serious runners. We’ve changed the time of the Daisy Dash so those participating in the 5K can watch and cheer as they come over the bridge and up the hill to the finish line. We will still have the Training Guides which complement Journeys for each of the GS grade levels available further down the page for you to download along with Facebook posts to help you along the way. There are even be some “Couch to 5K” materials to help you. If you are looking for a great website to assist you as you prepare for the Dash and 5K visit www.c25k.com. Also, check with your local grocery stores to find if they have a nutritionist who can offer a tour or program for your community or troop.
The city of Schenectady is excited to have GSNENY use this great gem of their city and after the run is finished the park is available for picnicking and use of their playgrounds and facilities.
GSNENY staff will be on hand to cheer you on as well as participating in the run! We’ll make certain to have music and warm-up activities ready to get you revved up to run!
Girl Scouting builds girls of Courage, Confidence and Character, and the run is a great way to get started. Imagine the possibilities of how you can take charge, impact future, and begin to think about your plan to play a role in “Running the World.”
