Today is the 33rd annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day. This year’s theme is “Lead Her Forward:” a mantra that seeks to inspire girls and women to make breakthroughs in sport and to become leaders. The RDP members reflect on what this day means for them and how we can all celebrate!

College lacrosse and marathon training may be completely different, but Erin still treats her time off the same way. Spending time with family in her home town on the West Coast is always a good re-boot whether she’s gearing up for the lacrosse season or her next marathon.
We’re ringing in the New Year with new goals, but we also need to reflect on all the insane and incredible experiences we had in 2018. Although we were established in 2017, 2018 was our FIRST FULL YEAR of the Raleigh Distance Project.
Meet the newest member of the Raleigh Distance Project: Kimberly Ruck!
Kim has been by our side from the start, so we finally decided to define the relationship. Since moving to Chapel Hill, Kim has been an amazing training partner, supporter, and friend. Kimberly has seen RDP grow from the ground up, so it was only fitting to make her an official member of the squad.
We had so much fun facilitating an event through Oiselle’s Bras for Girls program with the Wake Young Women’s Leadership Academy! We worked with girls grades 6 through 8 to help find each young woman a good fitting sports bra and answer questions about women’s sports, changing bodies, and growing up in general. The Bras for Girls program is funded by every woman who pays a membership fee to be on Oiselle’s team, and through the sale of Oiselle’s sports bras. If you know of a team, school, or program that would benefit from the bras for girls program, let us know!
After Rita’s fun experience at the nOg 4 miler, we knew we had to partner with these awesome people! From beer, to volunteering, to awesome events, nOg does it all. Come join us on October 20 for the nOg run 4 miler, and then again on October 22 for trivia night at the beer garden! Can’t wait to see y’all there.
Just like most elite athletes, Sammy has struggled with self confidence at points throughout her athletic career. This year, Sammy invested in Kara Goucher’s new book, Strong, and it has changed the way that she views herself and her mentality when it comes to distance running. This blog is a personal reflection of Sammy’s exploration of confidence journaling and focusing on the power of the mind.
