Bennett has never really enjoyed exercising, but the Fitbit she got at Christmas in addition to our friendly challenges has made her more motivated. This program, coupled with the nice weather, has her walking to school most days, walking home from school when she can and just playing outside more. She has really enjoyed her time after school participating in this program. Several teachers at Shades Cahaba run the program at her school, and they have managed to recruit a few community volunteers to help out with all of the girls.

We ran the 5K on May 7th, and I had the privilege of being her race buddy. It was a fun and rewarding experience for both of us, and I couldn't be more proud of Bennett. She shaved time from her practice race, and we now have something to work towards for years to come. Bennett is going to accomplish great things!
