Run, Maddy, Run

Maddy at her first track practiceToday Madison started her second after school sport since coming to Costa Rica.  She is now on the Track team. For the next two months she will be practicing three times a week and racing the sprints.
 
The team consists of U.S. and Costa Rican kids.  The sports at our school have no funding, so the kids will only participate in the running events and will not participate in the jumping or throwing events. The coaches are two missionaries volunteering their time.
 
Her first practice kicked her backside, but, she is excited. She has declared that she will not eat sweets or drink soda for the duration of the track season. Go get ‘em kid.
