Girls on the Run

Today at 3 pm, behind the Lower School, twenty-seven young girls and their buddies gathered to run their practice 5K.  For many of these girls, this was the first time they had ventured such a distance.  It was great to see their excitement and determination, and I know that this experience engenders confidence in them that they will carry with them for a long time.

As they took off down the gravel fire lane behind the school for their first lap, I thought, "What a great habit for these girls to be cultivating at this age!"

As one of the inaugural coaches for GOTR at Trinity, it thrills me to no end to see this! And as a 36 year old woman, I still use the communication skills I taught my girls. "I feel...when you...because...I need you to..." :)
