Cobble Hill School students are getting excited about running and exercising and participating in the upcoming Times Colonist 10K.

The students received some incentive from Canadian Olympic 1,500-metre runner Hilary Stellingwerff, who went to the school to talk to them about her experiences at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Stellingwerff lives in Victoria and also just recently spoke at the Valley Youth Athlete of the Year awards.
