Across the country, women outnumber men at the finish lines of running events, and in Laramie, the number of young girls who run is on the rise.
Close to 100 girls will participate in Laramie’s Hapi-ness 5k this year. They are participants in She’s A Runner Girl, a program that physically and mentally prepares girls to complete a 3.1-mile run.
A second grader named Ada said she likes running with all girls. "Because there are no boys to make you sad or anything."
