Our Marathon Runner – Luke

Filed under: Family — Freddie Keel @ 6:15 am

Luke ready to start the 1.5 mile marathon.


(thanks to Luke’s mom for information)

Our school Burley Primary held a 1.5 mile run/walk fundraiser.  This was done instead of the normal fall carnival that most schools hold.  Each child asked for sponsors for the race.   The time was set 8:30 to 10:30 am november 18. Each grade level came out to support each other plus the high school track team and radio station were there.  The race started with kindergarten girls, then kindergarten boys, then first grade girls etc.  The top 6 finishers of each division placed.  The kids had been practicing or “conditioning” during PE.  Parents and grandparents also came out to support their runner.  Each class had a spot set up around the track that they sat and cheered when they were not running.  It was supposed to be like a real marathon where people were cheering people on throughout the course.  It was so fun to watch Luke.  We may have found his sport.  He didn’t stop the entire 1.5 miles.  He was on a mission.  He ended up placing 4th out of all 6 classes of kindergarten boys.  He said he should’ve been third but he let Cooper pass him because he liked him.  (if that is true then he picked the right kid to let pass him because it was the superintendent’s grandson that Luke said he let pass).
