Healthy Kids Running Series

I signed Celia up for the Healthy Kids Running Series.  It is a series of 5 races that happen every Sunday at 5:30.  I was not expecting a whole lot as not many people have heard of the program.  I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived on the first day and found a good amount of participants and that it was very well organized.  My reason for signing her up is that Celia has ended up being a bit of a poor loser.  So we discussed the fact that it was not important to win and it is okay to not win.  She did the first race and she did not win and she was 100% okay with it.  Great job Celia!!

They stretched in the beginning, they were divided into groups by age.

The pre-k kids do the 50 yard dash (then it jumps to 1/4 mile, yikes we will have to train for it next year!)

Audrey took her cheering position

Celia then went to racing, look at that form.  She is next to the girl in the pink shorts

Here she is all finished

These pictures are from the first time she did it.  This past week she was 4th or 5th, not bad.
