What an amazing week of running stuff!
I mentioned earlier in the week that I have a new friend that I run with, S. Not only is she an amazing runner and running partner-she is a mom too. A few years ago, she realized how into running her oldest child was and decided to plan an event so that her daughter could really experience the joys of running. There aren’t always a whole lot of running things for little kids, so she created a Summer Fun Run for kiddos from our town at our local track! So amazing!
This is my first year with the program-I volunteered to help out and S made me the distance coach! Kids ages 3-13 run either .25 miles or .50 miles with me! What a blast it is! Kiddos also get to do sprints, long jump, obstacle course, & a relay!
My niece has been dying to run and do running related events. So naturally, I signed her up for it. The girl is a natural born athlete and was crushing every event!
So proud of my little buddy❤️
A few weeks ago, I was talking to SIL, and we were trying to nail down a day that we could go to the track together. I said to her “I’ve always wanted to start my own track club kind of thing-I know there’s a lot of people who want to work on their running and don’t know what to do on the track that will help them get faster.” She agreed and told me to put it on Facebook. I really thought there wouldn’t be such a big response to it-maybe me and two or three friends…but there were about 50 people interested!!! So we planned a night-and the first night of “Track Club” was this Thursday. For the first week, we did 4x400s. Next week we’ll build on that. We had a great turnout and it’s something that I feel is going to continue to grow because there are so many benefits from group workouts! WRECKING CREW!
And last: some pictures came back from my 5k last week…this is my favorite!
Have a great weekend everybody!
Do you ever meet in a group for track work?
