Raising Runners, Part 2

When Suncoast Running offered a children’s running class, I enrolled the girls.  Over 6 weeks, Coach Lynn would teach the kids how to run a mile by demonstrating how to pace and the difference between a fast pace and an easy pace.

 

 

For the last class, the kids ran a ½ mile race…

 

 

 

and all the young participants received a medal.

 

 

The running class and the medals prepared the girls for the Gasparilla Jr. Race the following weekend.  Based on their age groups, Emmalynn ran 1/8 of a mile and Allana ran one mile.

 

 

 

Both girls applied what they had learned in their running class and paced themselves beautifully.  Coach Lynn would have been proud because Allan and I were definitely proud of our girls.

 

 

But I think Emmalynn and Allana were the proudest of their achievements.
