…I loved running with my mom. I got to talk and have a ton of fun while running the mile. My mom really pushed me to keep going especially on the last lap. I was really tired and had a big side ache but my mom kept encouraging me to finish. I was so proud of myself when we finished. My mom was also really proud of me. It was really neat to see all of the fourth grade students running the mile together. It was even more cool to know my whole school ran the mile on this awesome day. It was an experience that I will always remember. I am so glad my P.E. teacher had us participate in National Run a Mile Day.
