I like running. I like to run.
What is your favorite part of practice?
I enjoy running with my friends.
What have you learned from Let Me Run so far?

How does running make you feel?
It makes me feel like I’m free.

Let Me Run is turning 10, too! How would you tell Let Me Run to celebrate their birthday?
I think they should celebrate with cake and balloons. They should invite everyone who has ever been a part of Let Me Run to join in a 5K and then throw a big party in the end!

I felt exhausted, but good about myself...that I finished!
What would you want yourself to remember in 10 years, when you’re 20?
I want to remember how it felt to finish the race!
