When we started back in September, the girls were a bit skeptical. Run how many times around the school field? We started there with a simple math lesson: the school field is 1/6 mile, our goal is 3.1 miles, 3.1 times 6? They thought we had pretty much lost our minds as they collected their popsicle stick lap counters and laced on their bead mile markers. It wasn't long before they got bored of running laps and were ready to hit the street. Our little band of 25 girls, teachers, and coaches became a familiar sight around the neighborhood at 3:30 p.m.
