In my almost-year of borderline-obsessive social networking, I’ve discovered that “Black Twitter” can simultaneously be a blessing and a blood clot. It’s mostly just one MORE time-sucking, soul-sucking, chair-to-butt sucking COLLOSSAL waste of neurons.
But then there’s those times, rare and sweet, when I meet folks that are so much cooler than me.
Enter Ashley Hicks, co-founder of the phenomenal fitness blog, Black Girls Run. I read about here recent shine in The Root and I just knew she and I needed to hook up. And Twitter made it happen. Score one for the little blue bird.
I’m loving what Ashley and co-founder, Toni Carey are doing to fight that pesky little problem with obesity that about 80% of black have. So put down the donut and snap in your head-phones, because you won’t want to miss what she has to say about the blog, her own fitness journey and what comes next with Black Girls Run.
