We are proud to introduce Monika’s Mile to our Spring 2017 5k course! This season, mile 2 (mile marker 1 to mile marker 2) will be dedicated to the memory of Monika Carlson Allen, a long-time GOTRSD coach and board member whose tenacity and perseverance was an inspiration to us all.
Monika was a marathon runner, tutu maker, wife, and mother who exemplified the spirit and character of Girls on the Run San Diego. Until her passing in January 2017, Monika remained positive and resilient, doing what she loved most-- running.
Monika’s Mile is a celebration of Monika’s legacy and a reminder to all of our 5k participants that strength is found within. We hope you join us this year as we honor a bright light in our history.
