This was US on the last GirlTrek walk of the 2029 season, Saturday November 30th on the 30th and final day of the #WeAreHarriet Blueprint Challenge! We raised our cup to cheer and celebrate daily walking and acts of kindness all November long! Oh yeah we still get that #victorybridge in at the close of our walk to celebrate our accomplishments! In the Off-Season we are encouraged to continue our healthy walking habits despite organized walks not being held as often. Please feel free to check the national map at www.girltrek.org you may see a walk posted there. Happy Holidays Everyone and Thank You for a GREAT and MEMORABLE 2019 Season! Cheers! #girltrek #harlemsoledivas #weareharriet #harlemwalkinggroup #radicalselfcare #1millionby2020 #1milby2020

Day 30/30 I took the challenge:30 days of walking 30 minutes/day. Finished today as I startedโ€”a solo-trekkerโ€”but in between I joined walks, initiated walks, and like everyone else walked in good and bad weather, rain or shine, heat and cold to complete this challenge. I recruited walkers and shared the Girktrek mission and vision. This isnโ€™t the end, itโ€™s just the beginning of a new regimen. Walking is necessary. Walking is NOT sufficient. Thank you Girltrek, thank you to fellow trekkers, thank you to the new trekkers, thank you to my family and friends for continued support. This month I walked 167.13 miles or 421,940 steps. I exceeded my goal averaging 14,064 steps/day or 5.57 miles/day. But more work to be done. My path toward health is not complete and we have a million sisters to bring along. #walk #walking #girltrek #WeAreHarriet #Ubuntu #Day30ActsofService #GivingThanks #AttitudeofGratitude #radicalselfcare #harriettubman #healthiswealth #selfcare #blackmentalhealth #ancestry #selfcareisarevolutionaryact #Iamworthit #harrietshandbook #blackgirlmagic #blackgirljoy #1Milby2020 #100mlives #healthequitynow #myownpath #mybestlife #MoCo #MontgomeryCountyMD #strivingforexcellencenotperfection #optoutside #OutdoorAfro

Finish Line at the 2019 Black Family 5K held at Central Park North! We all are winners and celebrated our victory the GirlTrek way! With a Victory bridge! This truly was a great day sharing in each otherโ€™s joy! We had women who were smokinโ€™ and got in the GirlTrek pace 15 minute mile all 3 laps and we had trekkers who came through on each lap smiling and getting their steps in. We had 6 first time trekkers Jamiree, Iris, Lisa, Eddwina, Aisha and Kiera who contributed to the rallying together and joy of completing the 5k! #girltrek #girltrekharlem #blackfamily5k #harlemsoledivas #radicalselfcare #victorybridge #blackgirljoy #weareharriet #1milby2020 #1millionby2020 #girltreknc

Just a few years ago walking on Thanksgiving day was unheard of. I certainly wouldn't have walked to the supermarket 6 blocks away when I could've easily found what in I want in the one just around the corner.

Following our walk we had a end of season celebration at @sisterscuisineharlem! We were greeted by owner RanDe and had an enjoyable evening of reminiscing on walks during the season, over fresh Caribbean and soul food dishes. ___ We drew names from a jar and raffled off prizes! Each week a woman trekked her name was entered into the drawing. Our lucky winners were Theresa (brand new Fitbit to track health progress), Crystal (dual alarm clock โฐ aiding in on time arrival), Carolyn (designer shea butter selfcare bar of soap ๐Ÿงผ). Everyone received swag bags which included: GirlTrek buttons, GirlTrek bracelet, ponchos (for those rainy walks in superhero blue of course), exercise bands (in a blue spectrum as well), GirlTrek fleece headband that protects from the harsh cold temperatures, walking maps of East Harlem, We Walk Wednesday cooler bags/lunch boxes, and thank you notes for the season. ___ All this was made possible by funding from a walking grant from the mayors office received in the spring and facilitated by @eastharlemwalks ___ I am grateful for the honor to have walked with these women and others throughout the Wednesdayโ€™s from August to November! Cheers to a season of great memories and those to come! ___ Thank you to Carey from @uptowngrandcentral! We worked so well together and Iโ€™m grateful for everything she did to make the GirlTrek portion of Wellness Wednesday a success for everyone involved. I cannot go without mentioning the dedication of this woman. Couldnโ€™t have done it all without you! #girltrek #girltreknyc #girltrekharlem #sisterscusine #harlemsoledivas #uptowngrandcentral @uptowngrandcentral #eastharlemwalks #groupwalk #radicalselfcare #supportsmallbusiness #wellnesswednesday #endofseason #weareharriet #1millionby2020 #1milby2020

Day 27/30. Taking it all in while I can. Good weather. Health is wealth, and the ability to help another is a simple thing. Enjoying another part of Sligo Creek Trail and the beauty of the county. Appreciating the magnificence here in nature. This. Is. Enough. #walk #walking #girltrek #WeAreHarriet #Ubuntu #Day27DaysofService #radicalselfcare #harriettubman #healthiswealth #selfcare #blackmentalhealth #selfcareisarevolutionaryact #Iamworthit #harrietshandbook #blackgirlmagic #blackgirljoy #1Milby2020 #100mlives #healthequitynow #myownpath #mybestlife #MoCo #SligoCreekTrail #MontgomeryCountyMD #strivingforexcellencenotperfection #optoutside #OutdoorAfro

Our last Wellness Wednesday Walk of the 2019 GirlTrek Season! We had Fran, Theresa, Crystal, Carolyn, and Michelle attend. Today was Michelleโ€™s Official 1st Walk with GirlTrek - we welcomed her! What are those brown bags in our hands? Thought youโ€™d never ask. @freshfoodboxnyc continues every week on the corner, meet infront of the sunshine mural at 125th Street and Park Avenue. Encouraging healthy eating with produce from local farms and includes recipes using that produce. We are thankful for the brown bags and held them as we walked getting in more conditioning. ___ Today is Day 27 of the #WeAreHarriet challenge and our assignment is to walk โœ… and perform an act of service for Black Women โœ…. We shared quotes on service by Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr. We walked to Marcus Garvey Park and took a few laps around the drum circle before wrapping up our walk with a victory bridge! #girltrek #girltreknc #girltreknyc #girltrekharlem #harlemsoledivas #wellnesswednesday #uptowngrandcentral @uptowngrandcentral #eastharlemwslks @eastharlemwalks #radicalselfcare #walkinggroup #blackgirljoy #freshfoodboxnyc #1millionby2020 #weareharriet #1milby2020

Day 25/30 and I am reminded that we are coming up on the holidays which can be a challenging time for some. Issues of depression, anxiety and substance abuse can rear its head. This morning as I walked from my home to the local Starbucks, I took note of the many road signs I passed and see them as a metaphor for some of the provocations that come with this time of year: Bumpโ€”yes, there are many bumps that make it a challenge as we navigate through family, family issues, food, expenses, etc. Like wearing blinders we do not always appreciate how the holidays impact our lives or the lives of others. Reduce Speedโ€”we are cautious and may slow down and for a moment, some may even...STOP. Maybe we want to park ourselves in places or spaces that are not healthy, not safe. It is easy to get stuck in a cycle, and repeat those cycles. Itโ€™s not always clear what is right, which direction to takeโ€”especially in the midst of perceived crisis. It is during these times that folks may appear suspiciousโ€”engaging in behaviors we do not understand, or those we know all too well because we have been there or recognize, โ€˜by the grace of GOD, there go I.โ€™ And maybe, its during these times that folks need not only our grace but our assistance. Be the answer. Take a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course to learn the tools to identify those in need and the strategies to help until they can get to definitive care. If you live in the DMV, there is a place for free MHFA training through the Primary Care Coalition, Inc. : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdK6-f_aRsRlFHvtQil91Oo2PzjwuVKiSwNe6YKmV9mbKNUdQ/viewform All they need is at least 20 per class to run the session. Ok @Girltrek, go get you some. This will be the best day well spent. #walk #walking #girltrek #WeAreHarriet #Ubuntu #Day25ActsofService #radicalselfcare #harriettubman #healthiswealth #selfcare #blackmentalhealth #mysisterskeeper #MHFA #endstigma #selfcareisarevolutionaryact #Iamworthit #harrietshandbook #blackgirlmagic #blackgirljoy #1Milby2020 #100mlives #healthequitynow #MoCo #strivingforexcellencenotperfection #optoutside #OutdoorAfro

#WeAreHarriet โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- 5 Borough 1 GirlTrek End on Purpose Walk in Central Park โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- It was a reunion for us and it felt so good! Proud of these women putting their drive to walk ahead of the rainy weather. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- Women shared how they performed acts of service to Black Women including helping them to find free or low cost mammogram, buying them dinner, checking on a grieving friend and the others we didnโ€™t say out loud. It was sacred space as women laughed and shared in sisterhood reacquainting with friends along the 3 mile journey from the Central Park Meer to the Harriet Tubman Memorial and back to the park. This is the purpose to which we jointly end the 2019 Trek Season. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’› โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- ๐“—๐“ช๐“ป๐“ป๐“ฒ๐“ฎ๐“ฝ ๐“ฃ๐“พ๐“ซ๐“ถ๐“ช๐“ท said these words "๐™€๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™œ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™™๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ข ๐™—๐™š๐™œ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™– ๐™™๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ข๐™š๐™ง.ย  ๐˜ผ๐™ก๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ฎ๐™จ ๐™ง๐™š๐™ข๐™š๐™ข๐™—๐™š๐™ง, ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™š๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™ฉ๐™,ย  ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ฅ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™š๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™š ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ฅ๐™–๐™จ๐™จ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™˜๐™ ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ง๐™จย  ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™˜๐™๐™–๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ฌ๐™ค๐™ง๐™ก๐™™." โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”- ๐Ÿ’™Take a walk๐ŸงกJoin the Movement๐Ÿ’› #GirlTrek #harlemsoledivas #bronxsolesistas #rareandradiant #girltreknc #weareharriet #30dayrevolution #1millionby2020 #1milby2020 #sisterhood #radicalselfcare

The Neighborhood Captains from all over New York City organized their sisters and came together for one final walk in Harriet Tubmanโ€™s name, the 5 Boroughs 1 GirlTrek End on Purpose Walk. Today is Day 24 of the We Are Harriet 30 Day Blueprint and our assignment is to perform a random act of service for Black Women and we are proud to say we accomplished this today! Check out how each of the 5 boroughs rep! #girltrek #weareharriet #harlemsoledivas #bronxsolesistas #raresndradient #girltreknc #harriettubmsnmemorial #1millionby2020 #1milby2020

(1) I started my walk in my neighborhood thinking I would walk into the park while admiring the sites that often go unseen when Iโ€™m whizzing by in a car. Yet, I didnโ€™t meet my goal today. Straight up. I said I was going to walk 5 miles everyday, but today I just didnโ€™t do it. When I realized I wasnโ€™t, I was starting to berate myself for failing to fulfill the commitment, thinking of all the negativity that would come my way, imagining all sorts of pushback (2) when the phone rings, a dear friend calls, and we decide to take a walk together. (3)My friend wants to show me places in my neighborhood I may not know. It was true. I did not know of this specific myth-like and magical place. (4-9)The colors are still popping, and sculpture long since neglected peaked out and spoke to me. Itโ€™s day 23/30 in the Girltrek challenge. So what if I didnโ€™t reach my goal (10); I live to fight another day, and time shared with an old friend was well spent. #walk #walking #girltrek #WeAreHarriet #Ubuntu #Day23ActsofService #radicalselfcare #harriettubman #healthiswealth #selfcare #blackmentalhealth #selfcareisarevolutionaryact #Iamworthit #harrietshandbook #blackgirlmagic #blackgirljoy #1Milby2020 #100mlives #healthequitynow #MoCo #strivingforexcellencenotperfection #optoutside #OutdoorAfro
