Last week, 12 Rolling Terrace Girls ran in the Girls on the Run 5K (about 3.12 miles) with about 2500 other Montgomery County 3rd, 4th and 5th grade girls. These girls have participated in the Girls on the Run team all Fall and were joined by their coaches including Ms. Callahan, Ms. Pettit, Ms. Esema and Ms. Baweja as well as buddy runners Principal Marcus, Mr. Barsky and Mr. Harwood. Every girl who participated in Rolling Terrace's program finished the 5 kilometer run!
Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a PTA sponsored program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. GOTR wouldn't have happened without the support of dedicated parent coaches including Kara Saul Rinaldi, Rick Counihan, Beth Hanak and Bridgette Kaiser. GOTR will have a new ten-week session in the spring starting March 7th and culminating in another 5K run on May 22nd. If you have a daughter in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade look out for the flyer with signup info in February.
