ONE Run For Boston Relay Running Through Oklahoma
Norman runhers Group Grinding the Night Shift
NORMAN, OKLAHOMA: On March 29th at 2:30am, runhers women’s association Norman Director Laura Mullins is leading a team of five runhers women on a lonely, dark 12 mile relay leg for ONE Run Boston. Beginning in Colony, Oklahoma, they will pass legendary landmarks like Hoochie Mama’s Hunting Lodge and The Road Rash Saloon. Their run will raise not only eyebrows, but funds and awareness aimed at helping the Boston Marathon Community heal after last year’s bombing.
Laura Mullins states, “I saw the opportunity, and even though we are running in the middle of the night on very lonely roads, I wanted to embrace the gift of running and participating, and do this for people who can’t, or who have lost loved ones in the Boston tragedy. Our runhers women have a lot of grit and a great work ethic, so this is some little thing we can do to support the project, and pass the baton on to others who care!” Mullins continues, “We plan on having a helluva good time celebrating life on our journey!”
