This is Mrs. Merlino's 4th grade class holding up the miles they ran today in class. Our goal was to run 1 lap to equal 1 mile. Each student ran at least 2 laps and some ran 3 laps. We previewed the Boston Marathon course map, learned about it's history, what cities it goes through and ran a "virtual" Boston Marathon of 26 miles! My goal was to give them a feeling of running the Boston Marathon and hopefully someday, some of them will!
