Being runners has turned Ashley and I into serial planners and if you're a runner, you should be too. Summer isn't quite here yet, but that hasn't stopped us from planning for fall, because really, that's our most favorite time of the year. Black Girls RUN! is happy to announce we're taking part in the Rock N' Roll series this fall! We couldn't be more excited about running this series, let alone, having the opportunity to meet other BGRs!
