Black Girls Run! (I first heard about this organization while watching a "Black Girls Rock" award show. I'm impressed by any organization that tries to improve African-Americans' health stats, especially women like myself.)
While out of town over the holidays, I was able to visit the Black Girls Run Laurel group! They were so fun to run with, check out this Running Club Roundup and other running groups at runwithnoregrets.com
