Silver City on the Run

The Girls on the Run program and the newly added boys running program, Let Me Run, spent the fall training for their end of season 5k races. The clubs met twice a week to practice building the endurance for the long run. Our Fuel Up to Play 60 team provided a refueling station at the end of the race with some nutritious chocolate milk.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The hardest challenge we had was getting our team together after school. Some kids are bus riders, some are in other after school programs and others found it hard to get rides later in the day. At the end of it all, we all made it work.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students and adults helped support each other throughout the race, especially the first time runners. Students continued to go back and encourage those who were finishing behind them.
