I first heard about Gazelle Girl in 2012 from my sister in law Melanie and we stayed up until midnight to register on the day it opened. We didn't want to miss our chance to participate in an event that was honoring women and celebrating Title IX! Little did I know that Gazelle Girl would come to hold a special place in my heart.
I have run Gazelle Girl every year, even running virtually one year when I was sidelined by emergency gallbladder surgery the week of the race. Gazelle Girl was my first half marathon in 2013 and when I was injured in 2017, my first 10k. It is my current half marathon PR (1:55 in 2016) and my favorite race. Running in 2018 with myTeam Triumph gave me the opportunity to run for someone who couldn't.
Gazelle Girl not only honors and empowers women, it creates community and gives back through charity organizations like the Gazelle Sports Foundation. #gazellegirl #wegotsoul
