She Kicks Major Ass.
A 5K (that’s about 3.1 miles to you Americans) is a significant race to run. It’s pretty hard for the average non-runner to get up off the couch and jog for 30+ minutes, and there are even training apps out there to get you in fighting shape to complete one.
So it’s already impressive when a 12-year old decides that she’s going to run a 5K. But you’ll be crazy impressed when you hear about when really ended up happening when she showed up for the race.
A 12-Year Old New York sixth grader showed up to run a 5K she had trained for only to get involved accidentally in the half-marathon, and ended up finishing it.
