Runners for life
I am one of the 4 sponsors at our school for the Girls on the Run program. We talk about positive eating habits, self image, empowering one's self to coexist with peers, and create a service project. We do run as well. :) At the end of the program we all partake in a 5K. It is quite the inspiring program! Our PE coaches promote physical activity with a wellness calendar. Students that track physical activities are able to choose from a list of rewards from business partners. All of this inspires families and look at our Kasey and Rachel. The recently competed in the Disney kid race. They ran a mile in less than 9 minutes! Check out those medals. Their mom ran her 1st half-marathon-Congratulations Cheryl!! Doesn't it make you want to get your running shoes on? I can't wait for Zumba Tuesday night. Get out there and do something.
