Sugar Land, TX News – PE Coach Inspires Hunters Glen Students to Complete First Marathon

Sugar Land, TX News (June 3, 2014) - Hunters Glen Elementary School students proudly completed their first marathon, which was held on their campus during Physical Education classes. The students ran a mile (an equivalent of four laps around the block) during PE class each day, with many students running more than a mile.

Shown with the Hunters Glen marathon runners are Principal Angela Dow, PE teacher Lewis Rhone (left), and Music teacher Theresa Grayson (right).

“The students didn’t think they could actually complete the entire marathon,” said Coach Lewis Rhone, “but once I explained how the mile could be divided into smaller distances, they were excited to join in.”

Hunters Glen Elementary thanks the marathon sponsors, including H-E-B and BlueCross BlueShield, who helped make the event enjoyable for students.
