Spartan Sprint Countdown - Week 4 - Tuesday

We had GO FAR today. Some of the kids don't like to run. Some of them don't even like to walk. I don't know why they are in the program. We're going to work on ways to motivate them. Sometimes the first session is rough for some kids, but if they return after doing the 5K or Fun Run, they are usually more involved. Right now, a lot of the kindergartners and first graders (okay, mainly the kindy kids) just do not want to do anything. So it's hard to try to accommodate everyone. Fortunately, we have a lot more adults involved this year. Last year, it was just two coaches and 60 kids. Now we have 6-8 coaches and about 50 kids. It's much more manageable. The entire group went to the beach, and I played Follow the Leader with my K-1 kids. They seemed to like that. There was a lot of chicken walking, marching, and silly running. Then we just let them run on the beach - they run to the pier and back. They did really well today.

turkey & cheese sandwich on whole wheat bun w/ black beans, salsa & cheese
