Running Club

Fall Running Club has come to an end.  We had a great 5 weeks, missing only 5 days due to weather.  Overall the weather really cooperated and we were able to spend most of our mornings running on the playground.

We averaged about 90 students outside running or walking each morning.  I have so enjoyed getting to know many of our new younger students as well as welcoming back many of our running club regulars.  We have had five gift card winners this fall, earning gift cards for attending running club every day of the week.  Congratulations!

Thank you to all the volunteers who joined me in the mornings to check students in, keep them safe, and encourage them to keep moving.  Your time is valuable and I am so appreciative that you chose to give some of it to running club.  Running Club can’t happen without your support.  I’d like to give a special thank you to Marie Lindloff for organizing volunteers and communicating needs and schedule changes so promptly and effectively.

Running Club will be back this spring!  Look for registration forms after Spring Break.  We will begin on Monday, April 20, 2015 training for the Med City  Kids Marathon the weekend of May 23/24.  Look for daily 5$ gift card drawings and weekly 25$ gift card drawings as incentive.

I hope everyone has a great fall and winter.  Stay warm and keep moving!  See you in April.
