Our girls on the run…

November 9, 2009

Elisabeth and Emily getting ready to run their first 5K

Today was a good day. The girls belong to a program called Girls on the Run, whose mission is to “prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.”  A noble goal indeed, and today was their first ‘official’ run – a 5K for the members in Forsyth County. The weather was straight from central casting (sunny and 75 degrees), and Suzy and I walked the course to show our support (from the rear of the pack). The girls did great, had a lot of fun, and learned they can do anything if they put their minds to it.

Here’s a brief video of the start – you can see them at the from of the pack (in the first 10 seconds or so). Look for them in the center of the screen wearing their Braves caps.
