To our amazing girls on the run: Fantastic job on the 5k on Sunday, November 19th! It is not easy to wake up early and go run in the cold—especially a place as windy as Belle Isle—but that did not stop you girls this Sunday. You all used what we learned throughout the season: how to run at your own pace, how to set goals, and how to do your absolute best. You all truly showed us what it means to be UNSTOPPABLE! Congrats for finishing your 5k to Amelia C, Evelyn C, Alma, Tegan, Evelyn D, Louise, Josephine, London, Amelia J, Alona, Charlotte, Athena, Olive, Ilaria, Izabella, Evelyn T, Kylie, Brooklyn, Tyler, and Lucy! With much love from your coaches, Sophie, Rachel, and Autumn.
