My sub made a huge chalkboard card for all the kids to sign!
I got a poster from my Girls on the Run team before I left...
And from a 4th grade class as well!
That says: "I almost won."
It was hard explaining to students that I didn't win the race. It was also hard explaining that I actually came in twenty-one thouand and "somethingth" place.
I told them how I was running for fun, taking pictures, and even stopped to talk to Mr. Cooney (my husband). "That's probably why you came in 21,000th place," a little boy said to me with his eyebrows raised. That comment made me laugh my head off!
Anyway, my heart was really touched and I wanted to share it with you!
