Rendevous 2013 : Black Girls Run

As a member of the Black Girls RUN - BOSTON community, I am

Black Girls RUN! is a national running group

And old pic of me running! I don't know how actors make it look good in the movies or models in fitness magazines. When I run, things that shouldnt be moving, bouge. It's like an isolate tsunami and there's nothing sexy about it.
