Today was a chance for our Beacon cross country team to give it their best. Beautiful trails in Dundas Conservation Area, many area Christian schools, and awesome team spirit provided a great backdrop for our students to run. Whether it was their finest race, their first race, or a race that brought tears, all of our Beacon students persevered and finished.
Though running a race is an individual effort, all the students encouraged each other to run hard. The teamwork was awesome!
At the beginning of the week, the team heard Hebrews 12:1-2. They were reminded that Christ is the one who receives the glory - and He is the one who gifts them with the strength and energy to run. He will run alongside them, and He has already run the most important Race for them.
A special congratulations to Lauren who ran away with third place in the Junior Girls division. Congratulations!
What a great way to spend a sunny fall day!
