I began to invite them out to join me and with the help of Instagram and word-of-mouth, our community began to grow.Read More
In 2014, I came up with the idea to add a run club to City Fit Girls. It was a great idea but there was one problem - I knew NOTHING about run clubs. I may have done one or two organized group runs with City Sports but that's about it. The Wednesday leading up to our first meet-up, I searched the web to find out as much info as possible about group runs and found a very common theme - people loved the social aspect but hated the actual running. Why? Because a lot of people were left behind, felt intimidated when they couldn't keep up with the group and never returned.Read More
This past Wednesday, four women - Alison, Marquita, Talisa, and Kim - set out from Harlem to run about 250 miles to the Women's March in Washington, D.C. in an effort to raise money and awareness for Planned Parenthood.

All winter long, many of us work out indoors, hoping for just one mild, sunny day so we can lace up our sneakers and go out for a run. Then spring arrives, but it passes by quickly. And before we know it, temperatures soar above 90 degrees.
Thankfully, summertime does grace us with longer days and more sunlight. But those long sunny days come at a cost. During the hottest months of the year, we must remember to exercise early, hydrate correctly, be mindful of the sun’s vibrant rays, and promise not to overdo it.
Has exercising outdoors been a challenge for you lately? Well, don’t sweat it!Read More
