This fall Gwen joined an afterschool running club - Girls on the Run. We thought it would be a good way to meet new friends in our school, but none of us were too sure about the running part. Gwen ran all season with her big ‘ole cast and got it off just in time for the big race in November. I loved this program that taught life lessons along with running. They had weekly lessons on positive thinking, peer pressure, body image… but most of all they had a blast together!
The race was huge – 600 girls plus parents and coaching running. Gwen was so cool about it all, I love to see my kids try new things with more confidence than I have as an adult.
Not in it to win it, but they kept moving and smiling the whole time! Can’t wait until the spring season!
