Savannah decided she wanted to participate in GOTR this year. It's a great program that teaches healthy habits and self-esteem promoting topics to young girls starting in 3rd grade. They also run each time they meet as they train to run a 5K as the final event of the 12 week program.
She made some good friends that were in other classes at school and had a great time running twice a week.
Today was RACE DAY! (Despite having to wake up at 6am, it's the BEST!) Mom gets to be the running buddy/mentor.
Look at all those fabulous little ladies! It was so fun to talk to some of their parents who were nervous because they haven't ever run 3 miles at a time. ;)
Savannah ROCKED it! She kept a positive attitude the entire time and really enjoyed her first race experience.
Right before I snapped her picture she said, "This is my FIRST medal, EVER!" I know it won't be her last! :D
