Today was a wonderfully warm day for the Running Club! We rotated between three stations today working on speed, strength, and agility. Coach Flahive led groups in games of fitness tic-tac-toe on the field focusing on teamwork. Ms. Pakes led groups in hill repeat relays and a planking exercise to help strengthen our core. And Ms. Harkey led groups in sprints around the track to work on our speed and agility.
Today's character trait was Good Sportsmanship. All of the coaches noticed two particular ladies who were always genuinely cheering on their teammates in their group. Way to go Abby and Zoe for showing great sportswomanship!
This Saturday is the Angels Among us 5K and Family Fun Walk which celebrates HOPE in the fight against Brain Cancer. This cause is near and dear to many Brassfield boys and girls. Visit their homepage here if your family would like to support the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center: http://dccc.convio.net/site/PageServer?pagename=angels_home
Ms. Pakes will be running the 5K with her blue Brassfield Running Club shirt on. Please let her know if your family will be attending as she would love to have more running buddies! :)
