Running Marathons

Please join us in congratulating two 7th graders for running FIVE marathons since 2013!

Since joining You Go Girls, an after-school running club, Natasha and Violet have run 129 and 127 miles, respectively  — which is equivalent to running about 5 marathons each.  Natasha and Violet hold the first and second place records for the most miles run by participants in club.

You Go Girls was created by a former TPS teacher, Meg Waldron, with the goal of fostering sisterhood and self-esteem in the context of running. Participants run 1.5 - 3 miles each week on the Schuylkill Banks, to Penn Park, up the Art Museum steps, or down UPenn's Locust Walk.
