Slice of Life Tuesday - Run Girl Run

Yesterday I found myself thinking about the Slice of Life monthly challenge I just completed.  I thought I could keep going in a writer's notebook.  Then I thought, I could keep it going by joining Slice of Life Tuesdays each week and make it a feature from my classroom since my blog is about teaching.  So, I had an idea from my room that isn't making it here today because after school life got exciting.  

Half the track ahead.  Down in the block.  200 meters ahead.  Starting in the fourth position.  Bang.  Passing number three, passing number two, passing number one.  Go, Girl, Go - She's in the lead and YEA!  She did it, N won her heat.  

Truly a slice.  A slice of seconds of my day today but it felt much longer watching her run half the track and sprinting ahead.  Cheering from the stands and so proud of her efforts.  There's something to be said for teamwork and she's done that a lot with soccer over the years.  So proud to see her be a part of a team that also promotes individuals improving their own numbers.  A really positive event for her to partake in.  She also did the 100 and that was a closer heat but we think she won that and was asked to go to the invitational this weekend for long jump.  Go, girl, Go!
