Today was a brilliant day, first we had loads of superstars running and enjoying themselves, and then we had the superstars themselves marshalling whilst the adults ‘enjoyed’ running round the same route!!
There was a lot of excitement and enthusiasm by the kids in the build up to the run, and when I lead them out and put them in position and then encouraged them to cheer and encourage their parents, their little faces were so excited!
A few of the adults hung around to keep the kids safe and supervised whilst the big kids put themselves through their kids paces. Not surprisingly, the course record wasn’t broken this time!!
One little girl said she was cold. I told her that now she knows how the adults feel whilst they stand around for the kids and that they should be grateful….her response…”well now they know what we feel like when we’re running around”. Never a truer word spoken!! I think a lot of the adults found a new respect for their children that day!
