On this day, the girls were running their end-of-season 5K... and they were awesome! Billie and I chatted on the sidelines as the girls started their race. Then, when I moved over to the corner that would become my perch for the marathon cheering, I got to see the girls as they neared the finish line. They were so cute - and so determined! Girl Power, baby! I'm looking forward to volunteering in the spring season. :-)
While Billie and I were chatting, I also noticed a young man out of the corner of my eye - really, I noticed his shirt: Free your toes. I loved that! Then, he was gone - running his race. Later, I would run into him again...
It was another great day to make new running friends, young and .... younger! :-)
Looking for a way to Pay it Forward in the New Year?
How about supporting a young lady in your own community through Girls on the Run, 'educating and preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.'
Happy running, friends.....
