Today’s post is a shout-out to Coach Lynne Knowd at the Ramona Community School… she’s put together a fantastic program with LOTS of positive reinforcement. They’ve run a collective 7,000 miles this year, an average of over 20 miles per student. Here’s the best part: 88 percent of the school is participating! Now that’s a healthy community.
Here’s her message to their team:
Great job today! We had 20 runners ranging from Kindergarten to 6th grade who completed a mile in 11 minutes or less. They all earned 1 extra mile toward their charms and running totals. Our Gatorade Runners of the Day were runners who continually have a great attitude at Running Club. I love to have these kids out there each week. They are Madeline L. and Madison S. along with Cruz C. Congrats to you!
All of our runners are out there each Wednesday for various reasons; some want to get faster, some enjoy exercising with their friends and some are giving their best effort to run. Please remind your children to encourage ALL of these participants and classmates. Ask them to tell two people each week, “Good job.” A little encouragement goes a long way!
Next week endurance… run, run as MUCH as you can!! I can’t wait to see them out there next week. Attached is a printout of the awards which are due to the runners.
Kudos to Coach Lynne!!
