Girls on the Run is celebrating its second year! Under the coaching leadership of Bridgehampton teacher Meredith McArdle, Bridgehampton’s third-fifth grade girls in the nationally based learning program are enhancing leadership skills, gaining confidence and learning to keep their minds and bodies healthy while having fun running together! The girls read “The Girl Who Ran,” a picture book biography of Bobbi Gibb, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon despite the many obstacles in her way. They then discussed running goals and practiced words of encouragement for one another when their own running got difficult.
