Pacer Challenge!

In P.E., they do something called a pacer challenge. It's where they walk or run from one side of the gym to the other but they have to be at the line by the time the bell rings.  Every time you make it, that's one lap.  You keep going until you quit or don't make it before the bell.  The tricky part is you have to pace yourself.  It starts out slow but quickly gets faster.  They invited parents to watch the top ten for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls and boys.  Gracie was number 7  for 4th grade girls!  So proud of her!  We went to cheer her on.



 
Here she is getting ready.


 
She started by walking briskly.


 
But soon she had to start running to keep up!





 
She didn't win but she did her best.  I think she did maybe 44?  I couldn't do that many.

 
But she did get a medal.


 
In fact all the top ten girls did! 


 
Great job Gracie!  My little runner!
