Have you been thinking about doing a 5K or a 1/2 Marathon? Iron Girl is an awesome running series for women only.
Last year was my first year running in Iron Girl, and I did it with my oldest daughter. We had so much fun!
I haven't decided yet which distance I'm doing this year!! I loved being able to do the 5K with my little Pixie, but I have really enjoyed walking the longer distances, so I'm torn. If I had a buddy to walk the 1/2 marathon with I would do it in a heartbeat. But the idea of walking 13.1 miles ALONE sounds awful. If no one steps up to walk with me, then I probably will do the 5K with one of my daughter's. Probably Ella since Haley did it last year.
I really do think women's only events help to promote the bond of sisterhood and unity among women. Too often we hear of women tearing other women down. We should be empowering our fellow women, lifting them up and helping them to achieve their goals.
Iron Girl believes in that philosophy. Iron Girl’s mission is to empower women toward a healthy lifestyle. The Iron Girl event experience provides women with a competitive platform and amenities such as: a post-race catered Breakfast Café, performance shirts sized just for women, professional timing, personalized race bibs, custom finisher medals, post-race giveaways and much more. The Web site is filled with training tips, guest columnists and nutrition information. Iron Girl has also furthered its offerings with the addition of IronGirlshop.com with items such as hydration and nutrition products, jewelry and sports bags. The Iron Girl brand has been featured in a range of media outlets to include USA Today, The New York Times, Runner’s World, Family Circle, Ok! Magazine and Women’s Health.
