Today the K5-2nd graders had their annual fun run fundraiser at school. They have been training to run during PE during the past month and bringing in change to raise money for the Red Cross.
It was about 32 degrees outside this morning so the spectators were cold but the runners were good!
This is Griffin with one of his best buds, Nathan.
Griffin took off with gusto! Slow and Steady is not his race preference - he ran hard, walked a while, and repeated!
All of the K5 ran 1 mile…which seems like a really long way for all of those little legs…but they did great. (After the race I over heard many of them saying they felt like puking or that they were having a heart attack!)
Griff didn't look so hot when he finished but he perked up quickly!

1-5 graders get to pick the 1 mile run or a 3 person relay…so here is Avery's team for the relay- Avery, Claire, and Avery!
Avery was the 3rd runner in her group…so here she is, waiting on the baton to arrive.
almost at the finish line
