2014 Melon Dash 5K and Fun Run!
One of the best parts about being a coach is watching runners meet their goals and see the results of all of their hard work. The Summer Kids Running Program wrapped up at the 2014 Melon Dash 5K and Fun Run in McKinney. This is the second year that the Kids Program has participated in the Melon Dash, a fun, family-friendly race in downtown McKinney. Kids celebrated fiinishing their first Fun Run, first 5K, and fastest 5K races!
This summer, the kids kept track of their total miles for the duration of the eight week program. At the Melon Dash, they received their hard-earned charms for their totals. Most kids reached the marathon-mark, 26.2 miles, over the summer. We also had kids total 40, 50 miles, and two girls from the Advanced class ran 80 MILES during the summer! So proud of the kids!
