Wednesday, December 12th was our last day of LHE Bobcat Marathon Club for this "semester". But while we let winter rein, we encourage you to keep moving with Jingle Bell Runs, etc.! You can rack up the fun run miles over the break and turn in your miles later. We'll add them to your marathon club total. Don't worry, our winter hiatus is short and we will meet again in March! We celebrated our last day with a healthy snack of water and granola bars from Hy-Vee (thank you, Hy-Vee!!!!!) and cheered the kids accomplishments with a candy cane. Take a look ...
We celebrated 3 finishers today. Congratulations to Macade, Brendan and Jacob! Great accomplishment, boys!
