Deep Cove Training Run
October 19th was a city-wide professional development day (in other words: a day off school) but for 6 students it meant getting down to business. Instead of sleeping in, they got to school by 9 am and for a warm up played an intense hour’s worth of indoor soccer. Once we were all nice and sweaty, we took off for Deep Cove.
The Deep Cove run is a tradition at Streetfront. It’s 18.8 km and offers a host of challenges (large hills; rolling ups and downs; the 2nd Narrows Bridge) for those ready to take up the challenge.
All the kids were great. We had 2 newbies on the run: Segar – a grade 8 student and Jesse – a gr. 10 girl, both did fabulously. I always find it amazing that these kids just show up and with no hesitation or trepidation, go out and tackle such challenges. There aren’t many kids like them – and I’m sure glad they all found their way to Streetfront.
