Congratulations to Northwestern Middle School teachers Kelly Conron and Ashley Poston for their amazing accomplishment in completing this year’s Boston Marathon! The Boston Marathon is one of the six World Marathon Majors and is known as one of the most difficult to qualify for among marathon runners. Both Ashley and Kelly qualified for the 2017 Boston Marathon by running in last year’s Philadelphia marathon. They both have been training prior to the new year and have used their training as a teaching tool for their Health and Physical Education students. NMS students have seen Ms. Conron and Mrs. Poston putting in their miles around campus before and after school and have been following their training and nutrition programs from day one. Mrs. Poston and Ms. Conron even started a running club and 5K race at NMS as a way for their students to start their own path to marathon success one day! Way to go teachers and thanks for making our Wildcat Nation proud!
