I’ll Have Another Episode 27: Toni Carey
Toni is the co-founder of Black Girls RUN!, a grassroots organization that encourages and inspires African-American women to live a healthy lifestyle. While currently serving at the helm of Black Girls RUN!, she is a freelance writer for Zelle (a Runner’s World publication) and provides public relations and marketing consulting to grassroots organizations.
She has been named one of the “30 Black Bloggers You Should Know” by The Root, Essence Magazine’s “35 Under 35: Young Black and Amazing Women,” and recently received Toyota’s Standing O-Vation Award presented at Oprah’s 2014 “The Life You Want” Weekend in Atlanta.

In this episode, Toni and I talk about how her passion for running turned into this incredible organization. Toni has dedicated her career to improving the lives of thousands of women across the country while taking creative and untraditional approaches to getting more minorities outdoors. We talk about Toni’s current obsession with all things healthy living and being kind to oneself. Toni outs herself as a hippy who loves burning incense and drinking kombucha.
I enjoyed getting to know Toni and learning more about her mission and the mission of Black Girls RUN! She made me feel at ease and so comfortable in our conversation and I know you’re going to love her!
