Just Run!!

C started, 7 weeks ago, training for a 5K through a program through our county and her school called "Just Run". Being a real athletic kid, she was excited to try something new. Well ya'll, she took to it like a fish to water and is totally in love with running.  She was the only kid who made it to every single practice! They started out with 50 kids, and ended up with about 10 kids. It all came down to Saturday! She participated in her first 5k! She finished in 32 minutes flat!! She did an amazing job!

She recieved a $25 gift card from her teacher to Foot Locker for coming to every practice, and then they held a raffle and she won another one! She fully intends on doing many more 5k's and possibly even join track next year! She did so well. Way to go C!
