Before 2009, Toni Carey says she never considered herself the athletic type. But when she and her friend turned business partner, Ashley Hicks, decided to get more fit, their journey helped inspire many other Black girls to start running, too. Black Girls Run has been featured on BET and several other news outlets. Carey’s running advice? “Take your time and focus on your goals. It’s a marathon not a sprint.”
