My daughter’s school recently hosted a free 10-week after school running program. It ended on Friday with a 5K fun run that I got to do with my daughter. It was the first time my girl had run 3.1 miles in one chunk and she was really feeling it (in the form of a side stitch) and wanted to give up a few times. But, she pushed through and was SO excited when she got to the finish line. It was a great lesson in the payoff of perseverance!
