Obesity, heart disease and high blood pressure disproportionately affect the black community. It’s not an overstatement to say, it’s a matter of life and death if we don’t start exercising more.
Toni Carey and Ashley Hicks did exercise, dropped a few pounds, and soon Black Girls Run was born. It’s not about being skinny, or even pressure to lose weight (I think you all know what I’d say to that). It’s about exercising for your health, setting goals and feeling good!
What I like most about this group–it’s women supporting women. Take a look!
Are you part of Black Girls Run or any type of fitness group where you live?
