Mileage Club 2016--'Cause it's my blog and I will post what I want to. And today, that needs to be a series of links about Mileage Club so that all of this is gathered and accessible in the future. Can you tell we're wrapping things up?

Prizes: In the past, we have had success with donations from Defy Gravity, Girls on the Run, Peak Running, and Red Dirt Running Company. We have also supplemented with some Target Gift Cards.
Here's an approximate number of each color card that was handed out in 2016 (6 week program.) Each 16 punch card represents 3.65 miles (that's 0.23 miles per lap around the Crestridge track.) The actual totals for orange and yellow cards handed out might be a little bit higher since not every student had their rainbow necklace recorded.
School Total for 2016: Upwards of 2500 miles! Way to go, Crestridge.
And, since this is a family blog, I'll let you know that I tallied up Talia's running from this year and last, and she recorded 99.7 miles. I'm rounding up to call her a Hundred Miler. Way to go Talia! And Brooklyn, thanks for starting such an amazing program. You kids inspire us all.
