Special Olympics Costa Rica

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

Last week my school called my mom and asked if I would particpate in the Speical Olympics. Last Thursday me, mom, dad, maria and granny loaded up in the car and headed to Paquera. It is about an hour away from home. We were all really excited about being able to go to the games. The special education teacher asked if my dad and I would participate in the 25M run!

Dad held me in his arms and ran with me those 25 meters. It felt good having the wind in my hair and the sun beating down on us. We werent racing anybody but they were keeping time and everyone was cheering me on. We had fun. It makes me happy that I could run with dad. After the race I was given a medal and a certificate for the Special Olympics. I had a really cool tshirt given to me as well. All the athletes wore the same shirt.

We were amazed at how mnay people were there and how well it was organized. It was a day I will never forget. I know how proud I made my mom and dad. I was proud of myself as well.
We will be practicing for next year! Dad wants to try and run the 50Meter!! :)
