I got the privilage of attending Adeline's Girls On The Run practice. My good friend Jamie watched Andrew so that I could do this. Adeline was very excited to have me there and as a Mom that really meant a lot. She and I were running buddies. 14 laps around the school is 3 miles. On the first lap Adeline was already talking about wanting to walk soon. I encouraged her to see how far we could go. After each lap she took a quick drink of water and then we were back on our way. Adeline ran all 14 laps. This is the most she has done all season and I knew she could do it. It was such a fun experience for me as a Mom who loves to run to share this with my little lady.
The big 5k is in two weeks. It's going to be a fun day!

All of the girls getting a pep talk before the run begins. There are about 50 girls from Lincoln Park alone.
