Kacie runs Cross Country
Kacie has enjoyed running a little cross country this year. She was
a little hesitant at first but after the first race she thought it was a lot of
fun. In a few years she will be ready for a marathon with Aunt
Diana. There are around 20
elementary schools in our district. Each week three or four of
the schools join together and hold a cross country meet at a central location.
They have a separate race for each gender and grade. The fourth
grade girls run just over a half of a mile. In Kacie's first meet she
placed 9th out of about 35 girls. Last week she place 22nd out of about
60 girls. She was excited to receive a purple ribbon for having finished
in the top 31.
Kacie turns up the motor down the final stretch!
