Monday, we had a guest speaker (a marathon runner) come and talk to the students about being active and healthy.  He talked about setting goals and working to meet these goals.  Our school wellness specialist (Bethany Ericksen) has arranged for a great opportunity to help suppoort kids in being active by running 25 miles over the next three months.  On May 3 there is a marathon scheduled in Provo that students can run the final 1.2 miles of the marathon (25 miles before hand and 1.2 miles the day of the race) and earn a medal and get a T-shirt.  Mrs. Ericksen was also able to work our a reduced price to register for the race for our students.  It should be a great opportunity.  You can find out more information at this link.   http://rees.nebo.edu/sites/rees.nebo.edu/files/Healthylifestylemarathon.pdf
