Katherine ran her first race this morning. She has never shown any particular interest in running, but when Steve brought home a flyer about a local color run she was intrigued. There was a 5K option, which she quickly decided was much to far, but she thought she could manage the one mile run. She has been practicing by running in the park and around the neighborhood. By this morning she was almost giddy with excitement.
