A week of "Chariots of Fire"

For one young girl it was week of running.

Now start humming the theme song of Chariots of Fire, it will give the post more gravitas! Go on start humming, you will not be able to get the tune out of your head all day.

Monday morning -  ran off to school for the first day of Year 3.

Monday afternoon - family run of "the bridge to bridge" (our local round with the dog), no homework, slept.

Tuesday afternoon - ran to a friends house to play and escape going to baby gym with little sister.

Wednesday morning - Sport Award at school. Each child needed to run a minimum of 15mins non-stop. Our running gal crawled home. She had surprised herself and us by running for 1 hour non-stop and achieving the highest award.

Wednesday afternoon - rested, ate everything available without complaint, slept.

Thursday morning - swimming with school, complained of cold water.

Thursday afternoon - running training with school, ate ice cream, slept.

Friday morning - school, babysat little sister for 20mins (not an easy task).

Friday afternoon - watched Tangled (Rapunzel) film on TV, told us what was going to happen before it did e.g. "the next part of really funny Dad", laughed like a mad woman, slept.

Saturday - Played horses with a friend. This involved making a complicated course in the garden of sticks and obstacles then running and jumping over a horse...vocals included!

Sunday - 2km Run in Buxtehude. Ran as part of the Primary School team, ate ice-cream, bike riding with Goldie, fresh waffle at local church, slept!

"Da di da di dum"......   It was a big week for a young girl.

Here is the school team getting ready for the big race. The sun was shining and it was a super warm day for the run. More than 500 kids ran the race. The historic Buxtehude Museum is the lovely building in the background of both photos. Well done all on a great race.
