The boys race first, and so the girls cheer them on at the start. The guy in the green is her coach. He is the most amazing coach we've ever seen! Harrisburg is very lucky to have someone like him leading this team.
Everyone else on the team started training at the beginning of August. We didn't know who to get in touch with until school registration, so Brailey has only had two and a half weeks of training. But she is doing great! She's already learned a lot and she will get in better shape and be able to run faster and harder as time goes on. Unfortunately, she has developed some horrific shin splints, but we are doing our best to get them healed up. The good thing is that she absolutely loves it! I still miss seeing her dance, but she is much happier in this environment, and I feel grateful to my toes for that gift. It is amazing the difference NICE and KIND can make in an atmosphere, no matter what the sport or situation.
