The Mason ISD ACE (after-school program) has recently offered a program to students who are interested in running. The GO FAR (Go Out for a RUN) challenge is a 10-week program incorporating lessons for children of all abilities about physical activity, good nutrition, goal setting, and character building. Each week the students gradually increase their running distance/time. Upon the completion of the program in December, they will compete in a 5K run in San Antonio. Last Saturday the GO FAR runners competed in the Gem of the Hill Country Run and a great time was had by all.
