Run for Grrrl Power, Champagne and Chocolate
As a former awkward teenage girl supreme who suffered in silence with all of her insecurities, I can appreciate the work that Alameda-based Girls Inc. of the Island City does to "inspire all girls to be smart, strong, and bold." This Saturday, women's fitness-gear retailer, See Jane Run, is sponsoring a half-marathon and 5K race starting at Crown Beach in Alameda. A portion of each registration (June 3 is the last day to sign up) goes to Girls Inc. What do you get? The satisfaction of completing a beautiful waterfront run and the reward of champagne and chocolates after you cross the finish line. Go grrrl power, guiltless gluttony and great gams!
