Lincoln High School (Portland, Oregon) assistant coach Marie Davis Markham has been working with boys and girls providing guidance in workouts, race strategies and confidence building. In 2017, Marie saw a need to have the female athletes talk about some of the critical issues they were dealing with while going through puberty. She developed sessions called “Girls Talk” where girls come together and discuss relevant topics to make them strong in mind and body. In this video, Marie shares how to start ‘Girls Talk’ within your program. Girls Talk are critical conversations focused on important topics to connect with your female runners.
