Each year our school has a 5K/10K Walk and Run as well as a 1K Kids Fun Run. Our PE teacher has a running club for the 3rd and 4th graders. There were a total of 35 students who ran the 5K! One of them was one of my 2nd graders! Here's a picture of us before the run...still happy and motivated!
This is definitely my favorite event at our school! Fitness, fun, teacher friends, and students being active and learning about our selves outside of the classroom.
To top off the day, my sister ran her first 5K, and ROCKED it! I am so proud of her! Afterward she shared how glad she was to do it because it gave her the confidence to perform that way on her own.
What was your first race? Were your thoughts as positive as my sister's? Leave a comment so we can all hear about our firsts (or the first one we plan on doing).
