Harlem Run Founder Alison Desir Shares How To Just Get Out There

As this week's Project Start ambassador, she's getting everyone out there to just start running.

This week’s featured Project Start ambassador, Alison Desir (@powderedfeet), tells us where running has taken her as a blogger, an endurance athlete, a mental health advocate and a community organizer.

Alison offers this advice to women who are just getting started with running:

“Be really gentle with yourself. Starting might mean running a block and walking a block. You’re not gonna get up one day and run a 5K.”

Thanks for this wisdom, and for sharing your story with us, Alison!
