Today was the Terry Fox Run honouring a Canadian hero, as well as the school qualification race for Divisionals.
Carmen had her signature strong finish. She runs a calculated race, and once again qualified for Divisionals as well as setting a new personal best for time.
I've gotta say, the cheering must help.
The kids position themselves at a critical spot along the path and cheer and shout for everyone as they head into their second hill.
Carmen felt the love as she headed up hill #2.
And here's Chloe coming around the corner into the final stretch right when everyone started to call her name and cheer her in.
Chloe also ran a personal best with no walking whatsoever, and passing 9 runners on the big hill. You can see how good she felt about her run. I need to channel that supportive spirit from the school when I go out myself. What would it be like to run with a smile on my face?
