Theo's and Mimi's Corner

Today was our final practice of the spring season and what a fantastic season it has been! Yesterday we had our last practice on the track and a few runners were able to accomplish their goal times for the mile! Others enjoyed timing themselves for the 100 yd dash, while some runners simply racked up mileage. Today we ran a campus two mile loop before heading in for treats and a celebration of the season.
The season and team were so much more than we expected. We were constantly impressed with evey runner's positive attitude, enthisiasm, effort and support on one another. Each day runners came out and supported one another to meet their daily and longer term goals with encouragement. Impressively, every runner met their goal for the season with the exception of a couple who are taking on their parents - yet to be determined! Our hope is this experience will support runners in a life long value of physical health. The team is a wonderdul group of individuals, who were brought together with a common interest, connecting through their efforts and challenges. They truly took care of each other each day; the real meaning of "team."
A special thanks to Mimi and Nora for their guidance and support throughout the season. They are always up for any running adventure, bringing their enthusiasm and passions. We felt so fortunate to have this shared experience with such a terrific group of runners! Keep runnning strong!
