bellmore pal mile

It was a hot and humid morning at 9:30 to run a mile race, but our athletes did their best to get to the finish line.

It was a nice friendly atmosphere with athletes, coaches and parents running this race together. No one “letting anyone win”, each runner, parents and coaches included, had to work for their place at the finish.

Last one guys, make it the best ever!!

Moonlight mile

This is the 3rd mile race of the season for our athletes – 2 more to go! Yay!

The race started in waves from 6:30 in Newbridge Road Park. Two of our athletes were in the 1st wave and did us extremely proud like all of our athletes regardless of their wave. Again many of them improved on their time. At this race we were joined by 2 of our alumni – John Schwab and John Schmuck who were 1st and 2nd overall.

Another enjoyable evening of racing, friendship, camaraderie and after race snacks. It was awesome to hear the older and more experienced runners encouraging these young athletes!

Lucas 5:58; Casey 6:47; Ryan 7:23; Nathan 8:00; Collin 8:13; Layla 9:18; Natalie 9:20

What a great job guys! Showing off the results of your hard work at practice.
