Maralee's First 5K

We left at 6 a.m. yesterday for Grand Junction where Maralee ran in her first 5K. She has been in the fall program called Girls on the Run after school two days a week. This is a great program for pre-teens promoting a healthy lifestyle, self-awareness and self-respect.
The girls and coaches were warming up here. You can see that the Canyon View Park is in a pretty place.
Maralee is somewhere in this crowd at the beginning of the race.
Maralee actually missed running after school this week because of allergies and coughing. She still wasn't feeling 100% on Saturday, but she still pushed herself to finish the race.

Yeah for #834! Way to go Maralee! This sounds like a great program. I wonder if Evergreen schools have it? (That's where Ben, Amanda, and Jack go - I'll have to ask them.) I love seeing the girls' pink cheeks. I really like programs that are individually oriented and teach skills that can be used a lifetime. Do you run, Lisa?

Sounds like a great program. Good for Maralee for finishing the race even though she wasn't feeling 100%! That is quite an accomplishment.
