Meeting scheduled for Little Rock Roadrunners Club

The Little Rock Roadrunners Club will have its monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 21, at U.S. Pizza in Hillcrest, 2710 Kavanaugh Blvd.

The meeting takes place in the upstairs party room and is open to the public. Jenny Paul, executive director of Girls on the Run of Central Arkansas, will be the speaker.

As a pediatrician, Jenny recognizes that girls often look to others for validation, a situation which frequently leads to unhealthy behaviors. Now, her passion for helping girls develop magnanimity and a strong sense of self respect as they transition into adolescence has become her purpose.

As a mother to three young daughters, Jenny is personally motivated to ensure success, growth and sustainability of the Central Arkansas council. A runner for more than 20 years, she has experienced the confidence and empowerment that running can release. She believes that these three roles, pediatrician, mother and runner, have both inspired and prepared her for leadership in Girls on the Run. Jenny welcomes the responsibility, and she could not be more thrilled with this opportunity for her community.

Little Rock Roadrunners Club meetings are held on the third Monday of each month. Members and prospective members are encouraged to attend to learn about the latest in the local running community and to be updated on club events and plans. Meetings provide a social setting to engage with old friends and make new connections.
