If you noticed green balloons tied to poles at various intersections down around St. Marks’s on Saturday, February 16, you might have also seen these young ladies running the streets. The are members of a nationwide running group called Black Girls Run. I met up with them as they were wrapping it up.
They were there in conjunction with the health theme of the C.H.I.C.K.S. “Let’s Move It Philly” program that was going on upstairs at St. Marks.
It may be time to organize the Historic Frankford Under the El 5K.
