Run Sophie, Run! and Drew too!

Sophie participated in her second season of Girls on the Run(GOTR).  This program is aimed at teaching girls 8-12 about healthy eating, exercise and body image.  They train over a 10 week season and then complete a 5K.  Here is Sophie with our neighbor Kellie.  Kellie was her running buddy for the GOTR 5K.

After completing the GOTR 5K, Kellie trained with Sophie to run in the Memorial Day 5K in Orange Park, FL.  This was a more "official" race because Sophie wore a timing chip on her shoe.  She did a great job and her chip time was 30:46!  She was in the 10 and under category and came in 5th out of 25 runners in this category. 

Sophie's success inspired Drew to jump in and complete the one-mile fun run on the spur of the moment.  He ran the whole way and finished in under 10 minutes.  Way to go Drew!
