" If you are not going to succeed in something, you just keep trying".
"Personal best means that if you try and you do not get it right away, don't give up and try and try."
"Personal best means to me that you try your best even when you think you cannot do it."
"Personal best means trying your best and believing you did your best."
These girls put their best foot forward and as one of the younger 4th graders came over the bridge near the finish with her Fit Girl friends cheering her on, she said to me" I cannot believe I did it". I was very proud of her and her efforts. The efforts of all the girls go way beyond the run. These girls gained self respect and self confidence this fall and it showed in their high fives at the 5K. The look on their faces said it all. Their smiles were contagious. And yes, it was a great day in more ways than one!
