6 with james. donut loop. 

pm - 4 miles. i helped rob and carina mark a 5k course for the traverse mountain elementary 5k. the entire school participated -- 899 students. what a task! it was mind-boggling to see that many kids charging down the sidewalks, but it was so cute and so entertaining. they were all pushing themselves so hard and it was pretty amazing to see what they were capable of -- some of these kids were tiny! the best moment was when one little girl crossed the line and then turned around and waved her friend in that was about 100 meters back. as soon as her friend reached the line, the girl gave her a dandelion and a hug. cutest thing ever.

I'm loosing track. Who's all in the USATF circuit this year, do you know?

tara - i'm not sure. current standings haven't been posted yet. i'm in. devra is in. kassi is in. that's about all i know at this point. come back in a few weeks and i'll probably have a stalker spreadhsheet going.

russ - thanks. i asked for a mojo donut this morning but they said they were out. i'll try again next week.

Donuts! *insert Homer Simpson sound here*

That sounds like a delightful way to watch a running competition at its purest. (The furthest I ever had to run in elementary school was a 300-yard "endurance run" for the Presidential Physical Fitness award.) I think more and more schools are realizing that kids are capable of the 5K distance.

From Rob on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 15:29:33 from

Thanks so much for your help allie, I'd like to know how many elementary schools have ever tried to pull off a stunt like that before. I'm guessing none.

So far I haven't heard of any lawsuits.

From allie on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 15:31:14 from

neasts - we were all nervously joking before it started that we thought it might be a disaster because a 5k is a long way for kids to run. it turns out they are more than capable, and they had no problem pushing themselves to their limits. they were coming across the line red-faced and completely wiped out, but they were all smiling and beaming with pride. what a great way to unite a student body and promote physical activity. i've never been around so much energy!

From allie on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 15:32:16 from

rob - seriously -- but you proved that it can be done. more schools need to get on board with this plan. it was awesome. thanks for letting me help out.

Cute kids running!

Your next endeavor...

You go girl. That sounded like a lot of fun. I am so glad you are feeling better. I think mental health days (aka zero miles days) really help once in a while. You have plenty of time before you show Des News what you are made of!

It was so fun to hang with you for a bit yesterday!! Thanks for all your help!

From seeaprilrun on Sat, Apr 13, 2013 at 13:23:07 from

I would love to see that many little people running a 5k! had to be adorable and a bit inspiring!

From Toby on Sat, Apr 13, 2013 at 16:22:03 from

That is FANTASTIC!!!! I was talking with some moms last night at dinner about setting up a before school running program at my kids' school. It is wonderful to hear such a great success story. Way to help!

From Nancy on Sat, Apr 13, 2013 at 16:51:48 from

Great job Allie. That is amazing that elementary kids can go 3 miles.

From Rob on Sat, Apr 13, 2013 at 17:06:49 from

It was just like Wizard of OZ except I don't remember allies slippers being red.

From allie on Sat, Apr 13, 2013 at 17:11:22 from
