BGR! Chicago Member: Gaylon Alcaraz
Gaylon has been with Black Girls RUN! for 5 years and has served as a Group Leader/Run Coordinator. She has run four (4) full marathons, countless half marathons and so many fun runs she can't even count. Five years ago she changed her life - from a 320 lbs inactive mother, to losing 130 lbs and running marathons.
Gaylon says "I am choosing to #OptOutside this year as I do every year because I believe commercialism is destroying the fabrics of our society. We don't spend enough time with each other.....instead we are running back and forth to stores searching for the latest and greatest next thing. Spending more time with your families and love ones is the way to a healthy and whole life."
