 Ft.Lowell GOTR Practice 5k Spring 2012

Above and below are some pictures from the *very* successful Ft. Lowell Polka-Dot Trot.

Hear what went on at the practice run for the girls at Ft. Lowell elementary school from one of the many coaches that were present..

“The girls got polka-dot bandanas, polka-dot super hero capes, and various lap counters for each of their 13 laps around the field. On the backstop they ran around were polka-dot signs with lesson-influenced sayings and postitive statements about each girl. Every girl ran with a running buddy, and there were cupcakes as well as candy for the end. A highlight for the girls was the running buddies doing the banana energy award for the girls. The girls thought that was very entertaining. We’re very proud of our Ft. Lowell elementary girls. All the girls were enthusiastic and tried their very best last Thursday”.
