Black Girls Run Too!


Spring is upon us, and it’s time to get back in shape!

What better way to lose the winter weight than to hit the park or the treadmill and run off some of those extra pounds from Fall and Winters’ many holidays. We spoke with founders, Toni Carey and Ashley Hicks, to get running tips on how Vixens across the country can get in shape and dispel rumors that running isn’t a black sport.

Founded in 2009 to tackle the growing obesity epidemic in the African-American community and provide encouragement and resources to both new and veteran runners, Black Girls Run! has a mission to encourage African-American women to make fitness and healthy living a priority. They have a network of 70 running teams across the nation, and you have no excuse to not get involved!
