Another Life Changed
Perhaps the most surprising outcome of all from running camp was one Miss Hadley May. Who ran the mile competitively without complaining or having a nervous breakdown. There was a timing glitch which caused me to award her third place (another girl beat her and we corrected this later), but it felt very good in that moment to give Hadley public recognition for a major accomplishment. At home, she asked Bastien to print all her race photos for her to hang on her bedroom door. And she proclaimed that she would be posting all her future finish photos there. This is a big jump from never going to run. My heart is bursting with pride.
