Global #SportsBraSquad Day | 9 AM  | Big Peach Running Store Midtown 

Join us at 9am on Sunday, June 24th at Big Peach Midtown for a 3 mile fun run and/or walk to celebrate Global #SportsBraSquad day! The #SportsBraSquad started as a way for women to ditch their shirts along with their insecurities, and show the world what strength looks like. In 2015, the National Eating Disorders Association found that 70% of women don’t like their bodies. 70%! That’s a disappointing and frustrating statistic and the only way we can combat the self-loathing and hatred women feel towards their bodies is to change the way we see strength.

But ditching your shirt for the first time can be terrifying! That’s why on June 24th, Sports Bra Squads all over the world will be coming together to show the world that our bodies are strong as hell!Do you need to run in a sports bra? NO WAY! Only if you’d like to!

Tuesday June 26

Queen of Cream Ice Cream Run with Highland Runners read more

A Normal Wednesday. Except.

Camera clicks and high-five claps careened recklessly off the buttes. A workout paid for in sweat; buckets and buckets of sweat. No different from any other Wednesday. Except.

Perla was there. Her shirt was on point.

Concrete steps reached out zealously, thirsty for blood. Still we ran them. Up, down. Going nowhere but here. No different from any other Wednesday. Except.

(Jade) Andrew was there. (S)He wasn’t cloaked in black.

Wyatt stood tall, an unwavering heroic pose undeterred by the bitter taste of spray paint. No different from any other Wednesday. Except.

Wyatt was not manning his post. The burden of celebrity pulled him away, admirers insisting he accompany them in yearbook photos.

The tribe gathered at the bottom of the stairs. Copper dirt finally allowed to rest, the light dancing as dust tumbled to the earth. No different from any other Wednesday. Except.

It was Chris Worden’s birthday. He failed to notify us. He will dance.
