The Ellen Smith Running Club held their annual 5K today. The race course took them out of the school parking lot and through the surrounding neighborhoods.
All the other students turned out to cheer the racers on. Anna even made a sign that said, "Run Fast Joy."
Joy completed the 5K in just over 29 minutes. She was pretty wiped out when she crossed the finish line . . .
. . . but fifteen minutes later she and the other racers summoned the strength to jog over to the Kona Ice truck for their free snow cones.
Joy kindly shared hers with her little brother, and he kindly let her sit in his stroller.
Joy's 29:04 time earned her third place among the fourth grade girls.
Her Minecraft buddies are duly impressed with her trophy.
