May I brag on my son >
« on: Today at 07:51:23 PM »
Oh - guess I am going to anyway. ;D  He is a sophomore in high school ( 15  ) and competed in the state meet for X-country this year.  He was the best runner for this distance at our high school and was number 3 in our league. 

He is now running winter track.  In order to qualify as an individual to run at the state track and field meets  - you have to qualify with a very competitive time.  Many athletes never qualify or only do so in their senior year. 

Last week - his first meet of the season - he qualified in the mile.  This week he qualified in the 1000 meter ( a little more than 1/2 mile ).  His goal is to qualify in 4 events for state ( he will only be able to compete in 2 events ).

I am really proud of him, he has been gifted with great speed, but he also works hard and takes it seriously.

What an accomplishment!  Way to go for him!  I bet you are very proud of him and well you should be.
The problem with choosing the lesser of two evils is that you're still choosing evil.

They went to so many invitationals that I never got a chance to do it - Several of the Xcountry Moms and I are going to do it when they start practice in the summer - that way they can eat outdoors.

I did take cookies and treats to their meets ! so I tried to keep them fed.  A bunch of the guys showed up and wreaked havoc on my XMAS baking  :o
