Imagine, if you can, corralling the energies of 21 butterflies. This is what it is like for me every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon as I lead the Episcopal Girls on the Run team. Our team consists of 21 girls in third and fourth grades. They are delightful, happy and gifted with youthful exuberance. And, they LOVE to run!
Since early February, Coach Jody (Kennard), Coach Jenny (Murphy), Honorary Coach Shelley (Massengale) and I have been leading this group of amazing girls. The intent of the GOTR program is to inspire girls to recognize and celebrate their unique strengths through dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Our season wraps up with a celebratory 5K event. Our team is so excited about completing the race, for some of them, their very first 5K.
