This year I had five girls plus my 4 year old who we call mini-mini mermaid since she does her best to run as much as the older girls. The six weeks sure went by quickly this year and before I knew it was race day. We were so fortunate that the weather in San Francisco was perfect for a Fall run.

As Sydney struggled towards the end I looked at my watch and told her if she kept her pace she would earn a PR. I told her we had about two laps left (about 1/2 a mile to go). She ran hard to the finish line to earn a 2:48 PR! Our mini-mini was such a trooper and ran the first 1/2 mile of the course and last 1/2 mile of the course with a huge smile on her face the entire time.
So proud of all the 200+ mini mermaids that ran this past weekend. It's a huge accomplishment for every single one of them. If you would like more information about the Mini Mermaid Running Club, check it out here to see about bringing it to your school.
Many thanks to Trisports.com for sending our girls all of the essentials for training and race day!
