Girls Run with Pride

Girls Run with Pride (my girl's running club at school) has been coming together.  I decided to call us girls run with Pride because our school mascot is the lion..lion's pride...and hopefully we will be learning about how to be proud of ourselves..very clever if I do say so myself. 

I got a bunch of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade girls that were interested in joining.  I picked 12 girls names this morning and announced them on the morning announcements.  The girls were really excited.  I gave them their permission slips which have to be returned on Thursday.  We will see how many girls return them on time.  Monday is our first practice.  Yeah!  Hopefully I have a positive experience and will be willing to do it again next year ;)  Tomorrow I am going to let the staff know about my Girls Run with Pride group and offer up the chance to train with us to any willing staff member along with begging asking if anyone would be interested in running with one of the girls in May for their first 5k.  I hope I have enough teachers that would be willing to run in the 5k so that each girl will have a running buddy to run the race with...fingers crossed.

ok, the running gods are working against me! I went to the gym and realized I forgot my water bottle...great! Well I decided I was going to run 3 miles to get me back into the groove (yeah that's what we are calling what I was formally doing before I got sick). Tomorrow I will run 6 or 7..I will see how I feel. Then Friday or Sat it is 9 miles...

Sounds like a great project! I would love to be part of that, if only I didn't live in Texas!!
