Ahh, this little SELF issue really blew up thanks to social media and you all sharing this story.
I am DELIGHTED to see all of the good that is coming from this blunder by SELF.
Monika Allen is seeing that an entire community of runners and women are behind her and rallying to cheer for her! Her business GLAM RUNNER has seen a HUGE influx of business (she can't even keep up!) and the attention to GIRLS ON THE RUN has increased. Virtual runs are kicking up all over the place!! Fundraising for cancer and GOTR all over are increasing....GOOD GOOD THINGS.
Being one to focus on the POSITIVE!!! Let's CELEBRATE all the good things that are running, getting healthy and LIFTING ONE ANOTHER UP UP UP!!
Let's SHARE our LOVE of being active with tweets, FB shares, Instagrams and Pins of everyone getting out, moving and SMILING!! Tag 'em #TuTusROCK!!
From GLAM RUNNER's FB page:
Thank you everyone for the overwhelming support! While we were hurt by SELF Magazine's use of our photo in their magazine, instead of bashing them for their mistake we'd like to embody the Girls on the Run San Diego spirit and show our solidarity with our positive response. Do something awesome and dedicate it to Glam Runner - post an encouraging quote on Facebook, go for a run in your neighborhood, shout encouragement to runners on the street, or wear a tutu in your next race. Help us share why #tutusrock!
