Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Autumn 2017 13 PHOTOGRAPHS BY PHILIP M. READ on its side. Next up are warm-up exercises, followed by a half-mile run ahead of the more competitive finale. "Don't do a sprint," Hohenberger advises her young charges. "Remember, you're just pacing." Water-filled Gatorade bottles await at the finish, helpfully administered by Hohenberg and fellow teammates. Before long, the day's final race is followed by time in the shade, with snacks and games resembling Simon Says, only with shout-outs of "Star fish!" (in which arms and legs are stretched to look like the sea creatures) or "six in a boat," requiring sharp observations of who is sitting down with whom. "That's seven!" says Hohenberger, calling out a group in the game of elimination. "That's seven!" At times, some contest the results. "I want a re-count," a young runner says. "It's their favorite time," Thomas says. "We did take out one lap because they were cramping up. It was their first practice." The staying-hydrated crew is a catch-as-catch-can event, with this time, Madelyn Cira, 12, giving some post-run water to Brandon Holden, 6. Below, Boys & Girls Club staffers — Ashley Hohenberger and Danielle Thomas — and their young charges review what's ahead for an afternoon practice session at Wake Forest's E. Carroll Joyner Park. The origin of the club, now with 1,000 members, can be traced to 1986. It became today's Boys & Girls Club in 1991.
