Nick participated in Let Me Run this spring and had a great time. I love the program because it goes beyond running and encourages healthy living and attitudes in what could otherwise be a very difficult to reach target audience.
Let Me Run boys are courageous enough to be themselves.
Let Me Run boys push themselves to be fit in body, mind and spirit.
Let Me Run boys are loyal friends who encourage and support others.
Let Me Run boys trust that teamwork, unity, respect and perseverance open doors to greatness.
Let Me Run boys are honest with themselves and others.
Let Me Run boys responsibly choose what's right, never settling for what's easy.
LET ME BE ME. LET ME REACH OUT. LET ME RUN.
The Let Me Run season culminates with a 5K in Charlotte and it was awesome to see hundreds of pre-teen and teen boys from all over the Charlotte area excited and ready to run so early in the morning.
While Nick has never been an exceptional athlete (I'm bored, I'm tired, I don't wanna do this sport anymore), he was excited to start Let Me Run and still excited every Tuesday and Thursday after practice! He set up goals at the beginning of the season, worked hard towards achieving them, and completed the 5K two minutes faster than his goal time! Way to go, Nick!!
