|3G - Golden Girl Gliders|
No we're not throwing up gang signs. We are 3G... Golden Girl Gliders. Not golden girls as in older ladies, but golden as in black and gold.
3G is our local group of Black Girls Run Little Rock. Three weeks ago I finally got out and walked with them. I've been a member of the Facebook page for months, and had been stalking their post about all the miles they were logging walking and running.
Last Saturday, I actually ran. Ahem... did you hear (read) me? I ran! Not that most of us had ANY intention of running when we met that morning, we were kind of pressured into it. Which turned out to be a really good thing!
Sidebar: Let me back up and give you my definition of run... A verb meaning to jog very slowly in a bouncing manner. The speed of a fast walk, leaning forward to propel the body forward motion.
Back to the regularly scheduled program... Being a non-runner before Saturday, I've always said if a dog were to get after me, it would get bit because I don't run. That day, I felt like a runner, and that I could do it again. I have the sneaky suspicion that I (we) will be running again next time.
We ran from bench to bench to bridge, breaking it up into small distances, until for some completing 4.5 miles, and others 6. After while, not anytime soon, I'll be running one mile at a time. Of course I'll tell you about it!
