One reason I wanted to coach for Girls on the Run was to be inspired. Team S’mores (officially Ridgecrest A) has blown me away with their motivation, dedication, goofiness, and energy. This group can whip out laps like they are nothing and then play an intense game of freeze tag before calling it a day. When I get the chance to run with them the conversations are priceless and I see them trying harder because I’m with them. Now when I go for runs on my own I can picture our girls running their practice 5K and find motivation and energy in myself I didn’t know was there. They inspire me in so many ways and I’m so thankful I’ve gotten the chance to get to know them and have 10 weeks to play with them. I’m also thankful I’ve gotten to coach with Coach Chocolate and Coach Graham Cracker! What a great team! There is no doubt in my mind that these girls are going to absolutely kill that 5K! They ROCK!
