100 Mile Club

Kids are really kicking it into high gear!  This week we had 9 kids hit 50 miles, 4 kids hit 75 miles and another 2 hit 25.  We have about 24 remaining 100 mile club days here at school this year. Kids that are around 50 miles need to average about 8-10 laps each time they attend in order to make it to 100 and earn the gold medal. 

Another shout out to Brown's Shoe Fit on Main Street Longmont for donating the shoelaces that kids earn as part of their 50 mile incentive package.  The kids really love picking out new laces from the great selection. 

There are a few new opportunities for outside miles.
