Cross Country

Had a REALLY great week of running this week! And it wasn’t even my running that made the week great!

Our rising (high school) freshman daughter is a VERY fast runner.  We’ve hoped for and guided her toward cross country.  The practices started just after Memorial Day, in the early mornings b/c it gets SO hot here in the summer.  She is NOT a morning person, so it was a bit of a question as to whether she could do it…but so far it is succeeding beyond our expectations! She has been doing it for 2 weeks now and LOVES it. She is tracking her miles, and setting goals, and meeting the other good kids who run cross country.  In the words of our son’s cross country coach, “there are two kinds of friends – cross country friends, and the wrong friends”.
