Marathon Kids Club
I coach a running club sponsored by the Marathon Kids organization. At the beginning of the season we set goals and track miles on a tracking chart. We celebrate each phase of the race in 26.2 miles increments. We begin with an end in mind and our goal is to complete the 104 miles during the season. The kids love to run and enjoy each step of the way.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Piney Point is a great community where administrators, teachers, parents, and students work together as a team. Teachers take their students running on a daily basis as part of their recess time. Teachers and students track their miles on the tracking chart. We also have different events where parents are invited to participate as volunteers and to walk, jog, or run with their kids. We advertise healthy habits by exercising and having fun.
