As you may know, the Husband and I coach the Girls on the Run non-profit organization twice a week. We help 15 third to fifth graders build confidence, self-esteem, and important healthy emotional skills while they train to run a 5K.
Although GOTR has a really well-planned curriculum that each coach follows to the letter, you have the freedom to do certain things in the way that works best with your group.
Weâ€™ve been having some very minor issues with teasing/cliques so today I paired each girl up with a running buddy that they donâ€™t normally hang out with. Every time they ran a lap, they drew a new card with a question on it to discuss. When they got back to the coach handing out the lap counters and questions, the girl had to tell the coach the other girlâ€™s answer! It really got the girls talking and a few pairs of girls told me they didnâ€™t know they had so much in common before today.
Wanna play along with me? I know weâ€™re not running laps, but we can still exchange info!
I would definitely be on the womenâ€™s soccer team. They seem tough but fun.
Well, if I was principal of adult world, I would make the work-week 2 days long and the weekends 5 days long.
I would leave a nice waitress a $100 tip.
Play = running. Watch = Uhhhh. I could go without sports on TV, to be honest.
My favorite season is spring because of all the flowers and sunshine.
When I grow up, I want to be responsible with my money. 🙂
I would love to meetâ€¦ Perez Hilton! Sounds weird but I admire him as a blogger for changing his blogâ€™s tune to be less bullying, and heâ€™s an awesomely successful blogger. Iâ€™m sure he has some sweet tips!
I am certified and have dove loads of times, but not recently! I would NEVER skydive though.
