Sneakers Donated from 'Run It Like A Mom'

Sneakers Donated from 'Run It Like A Mom' (Patty Girard / May 9, 2014)

In honor of the launch of a new blog - Run It Like A Mom - three local women donated sneakers to a youth running club yesterday.

Patty Girard, Sarah Perillo and Emily Perillo partnered with Fleet Feet to raise money and buy new sneakers for the CREC University of Hartford's Magnet school's Flying Magnets running club, a program that has helped a diverse group of students be active and stay focused.  Check out this Hartford Courant article about the club.

"It's great to see kids out there being active and taking care of themselves," says Girard, a Simsbury mom of three kids and co-founder of the online community.  "We are a hybrid mommy-fitness blog geared to inspire women to become their personal best."

The mantra?  "It's your life, run it!"

Sounds familiar!

Have a great Friday!
