#BLPIRL | JALAN-JALAN SANTAI WITH STRONG SISTERS INDONESIA
The first #BLPIRL of 2024 has just begun! If you missed the fun, read on how our morning walk can be a start for #BLPFam to appreciate themselves
It stands as a community built for women, by women with one powerful message: “Empowering Women Through Fitness.” The head of community Adelia Anastasia led #BLPFam today to walk around Gelora Bung Karno while sharing about the importance of fitness for women.
The day started at 6.30 in the morning on a calm Sunday, with #BLPFam from Jakarta, Tangerang, Bekasi, Bogor, and even Bandung were flocking to have some quality time together! The presence of Andra Alodita and Tanya Larasati – two of our longest friends – added an extra dose of fun. Andra surprised us with handmade friendship bracelets that she crafted the night before. What a sweet surprise!
At 7, we hit the road following Coach Adelia’s track along the Gelora Bung Karno area. GBK is known for its ring-road, but our route was a breath of fresh air as we walked through the main roads and wandered among the trees of the urban forest. It was like discovering another side of Jakarta.
After a one-hour leisurely walk, we reached the finish line for a Sunday morning picnic, where #BLPFam could mingle while enjoying morning snacks. Everyone’s energy was at its height when we had an inspiring, yet laid-back sharing session with Coach Adelia, Andra, Tanya, and our founder Lizzie Parra. The four women brought up a discussion on how we could appreciate ourselves through beauty and fitness, while feeling good about ourselves.
Some of the takeaways from our Sunday morning stroll:
Despite the rain in the middle of our picnic, the event unfolded wonderfully, leaving us feeling inspired and energized. #BLPFam all went home with (hopefully) healthier body and mind:
”JJS was fun and memorable because this is also my first time on a car-free day. Count me in for the next one!” — #BLPFam Jennifer
”Such a fun and insightful experience for me! It was also my first time exploring the city park inside Gelora Bung Karno.” — #BLPFam Selta
