5 Fun #GirlTrekRemix Photos:
Hailey, Houston, TX
TLC was right, sticking to "the rivers and the lakes that you're used to" is whackity-whack! Hailey went chasing waterfalls last week! ...and you better believe she took her #GirlTrek shirt with her! Represent!
Baby-Girl, Detroit, MI
Check lil ma out in Detroit this weekend getting her rock climb on! Shout out to Chrys and Robin for leading a whole crew of baby-girls on an adventure!
Faye, St. Louis, MO
Thou shalt reconnect with thy inner child. Double Dutch, kickball, foot races. Faye out there teaching us the commandments! lol #GirlTrekRemix
...and last, but not least. PLEASE don't let one of these two knuckleheads (GirlTrek's co-founders), steal all the glow! They are on their very own, super personal joy journeys and inspiring us along the way. Neither have missed a day of the #GirlTrekRemix!
Vicious V, Washington, DC
Vanessa out there making waves. Brand new to kayaking and can't knock the hustle. She wrote, "How I'm living! #ancestorswildestdream #fortheculture #girltrekremix!"
Morgan Fairchild, Dirty Jersey!
Leaning to the side, but you can't speed through, two miles an hour, so everybody sees you! Morgan, in New Jersey got her helmet game on 11. lol

The #GirlTrekRemix is underway baby!
For the newbies to the GirlTrek community - Wecome!! The Remix is 31 days of energetic, lively, physical activities that will have you stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new fitness activities.
For the GirlTrek O.G.s - we see you! Living it up, being bold and beautiful as you experiment with all manner of enjoyment from sky-diving to mountain hiking. Your pictures and Boomerang videos (my personal fav) give me life. They push and inspire us to be about the business of radical self-care, #BlackGirlHealing and remind us to do something just for the pure fun of it.
