This is a run series designed for all women of different shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. F.A.T Girls run is a running group that is part of the Women’s Institute of Self Development and Efficacy, also known as WISE. We want to encourage everyone especially women that they can have a healthy lifestyle and be runners regardless of their fears, misconceptions, and doubts. Anyone can be a runner if they set their mind to it. This run has been a dream of our Founder, Jennifer Sanchez, who wanted a healthier lifestyle and mind. As a result, she trained for and ran the Chicago Bank Of America Marathon back in 2018. She didn’t allow her weight on the scale to stop her from running her first marathon. Thus, we want to change the perspective around the word fat and transform this hurtful and belittling word into a word of empowerment. The F.A.T. acronym represents a woman who is fearless, authentic, and tenacious. We want all women who enroll in this virtual run to see themselves as F.A.T. We will also provide all our registrant’s support through a women’s running group on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/groups/WiseFatGirlRun and via email to increase their chances of success. On race day we will live stream our open ceremony at 8:00 a.m. c.s.t. and start our run afterward. You will get a medal and bib mailed out to you with your registration. If you register after 4.26.21 you will get it after race day.
