Today was a really big day for us girls in the Girls on the Run.  We had our 5K race at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, this morning.  Everyone was predicting that it would pour down rain, but I guess Mother Nature changed her mind because the sun was shining in the sky. 

When the race started, it made me want to jump up and down like crazy!  I started running and then since the weather was getting warmer, I was also getting warmer.  I was on my second mile and I thought in my head only one more mile!  Once I finished, I felt AMAZING! 

Then I thought about what this season meant to me.  One of the things that I remembered was all of the activities we did.  I also learned that what you say to people can be harmful, and you can’t take it back like toothpaste and its bottle.  I also made new friends.  Making friends is always a pleasure and that’s what I did.  I got to meet Third, Fourth and Fifth graders.
