Did y'all catch the weather this morning? SNOW! What?
The only excuse I could reason for having snow in the middle of May was that the heavens were surely celebrating the awesomeness of all the sweet girls running the 5K to finish out a great Girls On The Run season.
I was so happy to be here doing this exact thing with Ida.
She has so many great friends and belongs to a wonderful school.
The Girls On The Run program is so cool.
It is designed to help girls learn to be joyful, healthy and confident. To embrace differences and find strength in connectedness. I am so pleased Ida has been able to join in.
Our camera man did his best. It's not easy taking pictures of moving people!
And the cheering section was fierce!
I was so happy Emerson wore his hunting hat. So bright!! We saw him at every spectator spot so easily.
Ida and her buddy, Emma, charging to the finish line.
They did fantastic...only stopping long enough to grab a drink twice, plus two, one-minute walks.
The medals we were given had this wonderful message:
I have the power to believe in myself.
To stand up for who I am.
To say "yes" to a challenge.
To cheer on new friends.
To grow up strong.
