Kudos to 8th grader Steve Jackson for completing the Philly Half Marathon along with our long-distance running club coach Ms. Kuoch. Steve trained diligently for three months. All his hard work paid off when he powered through the 13.1 mile course. The morning got off to a cold start–it wasn’t even daylight when they met on the Art Museum stairs at 6:30! Coach Curless was an supporting fan, motivating Ms. Kuoch and Steve halfway through the race and also at the finish line to cheer them on. She brought a sign with encouraging words from some of Steve’s friends. We are incredibly proud of all of the hard work Steve and coaches Curless and Kuoch put into training for this race.
