This is a race report for my daughter Abby who ran her first solo 5k today. 27:45! She ran the first mile in 9:30 and just kept plugging away. Her third mile was her fastest. I'm so proud of her.

I'm so thrilled to be the coach of a Foot Locker Finalist - Kramer Morton who finished 7th at FL West today in 15:47.
