Monika Allen, Cancer Survivor and Co-Founder of Glam Runners, Ran the L.A. Marathon Wearing a Wonder Woman Costume
March 28, 2014
The real story behind this photo is that Tara and Monika, pictured here, are board members for Girls on the Run San Diego. They founded Glam Runner, a business that sells running tutus, to raise funds for the council. They are dedicated to helping grow the program in their community.
The awesome duo were running the LA Marathon while Monika was receiving chemotherapy treatments for brain cancer. Monika Allen (right), cancer survivor and co-founder of Glam Runners, ran the L.A. Marathon wearing a Wonder Woman costume. She was upset to learn that 'Self' magazine used her photo to make fun of the fitness trend of wearing tutus. Monika ran the L.A. Marathon dressed as Wonder Woman and wearing a starry blue tutu. You will notice her friend’s running bib reads “Die Tumor Die!”
Stand up (and run) for Tara and Monika, as well as every other runner who has finished a race feeling awesome in a tutu. Support Girls on the Run International.
