Rachel of course was the real winner! She worked hard and accomplished something she had never done before. Her friend Lindsay placed 2nd and Rachel, 3rd in their age division. Can you say Proud Parent? It was inspiring to see entrants of all ages, sizes, and abilities entering and finishing this race. Rachel said she was most impressed by the encouragement the racers gave to each other as the competition went along. As she neared the finish line and was tired and dragging, an older woman near her said, "Just run along with me. You can do anything for four minutes." In a dog-eat-dog world, it's nice to hear of caring people offering encouragement to each other.
It was a good weekend. Hope yours was great as well.
