I had my 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes run a mile in my PE class last week. Holy cow!!!! My twin girls in 4th grade ran a 7:39 mile, and my 3rd grade girl did a 7:42. I couldn't believe how well they did. It probably helped that my twins are heavily into soccer and ran all summer and my 3rd grader did summer track and went to the Texas state track meet.
I think a majority of my kids were around 12 minute miles. I am hoping they can improve on that. Not all kids are going to be good runners, but I have shared my personal experiences with learning how to love running and I hope that it helps them realize that they can do it. Even though I am not running with them during class, I am right there with them. I know what they are going through.
I love my job....
