Girls Running Club Runs 5K in Wells!

(Click on the photo for more pics)The Great Works School offered it’s first all girls running club with Mrs. Lindgren and Mrs. Jacobs. We set out to build on the success of the “Girls on the Run” program at Central School.  Many girls had developed a new interest in running in third grade and we set out to nurture that. We met twice a week through September to November here at GWS.  We were not only running, but we also strived to reinforce positive self esteem, self talk and the importance of exercise in maintaining good health.  We worked each week on stretching ourselves emotionally and physically.  A highlight of the sessions was the opportunity to run with the high school girls x country team.  They were absolutely wonderful with the girls. To top it all off the girls running club participated in a 5K to honor Wounded Warriors over the Veteran’s Day weekend in Wells, Maine.  It was extraordinary to see each of these girls meet and exceed their goals as runners and as people.10653480_715439211868850_4325799504347414733_n run like a girl_ sara jerry lily
