On the Journey
news reel: stories of People, places, and learning AT Aspen Country Day School
With a couple months of afternoon practice under their belts, the girls traveled to Steamboat Springs last weekend for a big 5K run that draws girls from all over the Western Slope. Two Country Day students, Shelby G. and Fiona B., came in third and fourth place in a field of more than 400 runners. Their teammates Gigi V., Alice A., and Rocksy K. finished with tremendous verve and style, too.
A big part of the Girls on the Run ethos is community service, and each year the Country Day girls have completed service projects. This year, they collected t-shirts from the thrift shop, layered them on each other until everyone was covered in about 10 shirts, then took them off all together and stitched them into dog beds for the animal shelter. Congratulations to all the girls and coaches on a great season!
