I run like a girl



I run like a girl.


I’ve always run like a girl.


When I was six years old learning to play soccer I ran like a girl.


When I played basketball in high school I played like a girl.


When I was in college and practiced keeper with the men’s team, I defended the goal like a girl.


When I surf and charge head high waves, I surf like a girl.


Every marathon, half marathon, 10k, and 5k I’ve competed in, I’ve run like a girl.


Everything I do, I do like a girl.


To me it’s never been a bad thing, I run like a girl because I am a girl.


I am proud to be a girl.


I refuse to run like a boy, throw like a boy, surf like a boy, or do anything like a boy. In the same way I don’t think someone should try to do something like a girl.


Just be who you are, and if you are a girl, go out and run like one!
