Sage had been waiting since first grade to be old enough to participate in the Girls on the Run program and she was thrilled that this was finally her year!
She loves running 5K's now! She has done 5 of them since the beginning of May. And she's already signed up for 2 more this summer along with a mud run!
Finishing her first 5K at the 5/3 River Bank run.
Her Aunt Jennie ran with her and finished her first 5K too!
Next up was the Girls on the Run celebration 5K.
The next morning she ran with my friend Melissa in an Allegan 5K.
The following Saturday she ran with her friend Sydney (along with some of my friends from Allegan!) in the Color Me Rad race!
And this past weekend she ran with her friend Sydney and our favorite librarian Rita (along with some great Allegan folks again) in the Cheetah Chase.
I was so proud of her for being the top fundraiser for the Cheetah Chase. I didn't tell her that there was a prize at all, because I didn't want that to be her motivator. She was THRILLED with her prize! I am so grateful to everyone who supported her.
I am looking forward to rooting her on at many more 5K's!
