For the past 3 months, Tahlia has been training for her first 5K through Girls On The Run (GOTR). If you are not familiar with GOTR, they are a wonderful organization that helps girls learn life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. Tahlia was part of the GOTR team at her school and I was one of the coaches. It was a wonderful experience for both of us.
This past Saturday was the actual race and unfortunately I wasn't able to run with her. I've had a calf injury for the past 6 weeks or so and it's been very difficult and painful. Since I wasn't able to run with Tahlia, she asked her fourth grade teacher Mrs. O to run with her. Mrs. O very kindly agreed to give up her Saturday morning and time with her family to do this with Tahlia. It was a GREAT morning!
Tahlia and Mrs. O ready to rock it!!!
