::A Wonderful Day::

Bear with me. This is NOT a DIY, artsy or home post; but a “things I love” post.

The alarm sounded. I grumbled. It was cloudy and breezy out. Another indoor recess day? *sigh* Didn’t bode well for our annual One-Mile Run.

For the past 20+ years, our school has participated in the Presidential Youth Fitness Program, running along the Atlantic on the boardwalk located one block away. So, today as I manned (err, womanned) my post, I took a few photos with my cell. Still a little worried because of the clouds and breeze. Little did I know that a wonderful day was in store . . .

MileRun 1

Starting at the old fishing pier the kids took off, blasting by the now empty hotels. They ran past the old 1895 deWitt cottage (my post), sandy play areas, surfers and die-hard beach goers.

Runners sprinted under the scaffolding for holiday light show (Up already? It’s still October).

MileRun2

These fish sentinels watched over the six- through fourteen-year old student runners. 

So what was the wonderful part?

MileRun4

Witnessing older students enthusiastically cheer on and escort students who find physical activities extremely difficult. I love kindness. Kids can be so cool.

AND, recess was outside today! 🙂

A WONDERFUL DAY!

Note: All students depicted have a signed media waiver. However, I chose to use ‘back-of-head’ images!

Have a good week! – – Joanne
