Cross-Country

Early this morning...like 7ish, we drove to Beaverfork in Conway for the boy's first Cross-Country meet. The weather was cool & thunder & rain threatened but amazingly held off until the meet was over. The boys did really well & had a great time.


I thought this was really a neat picture. Clay went right up to Chandler after he finished his race. Not sure what he said, but he couldn't wait to get to Chandler.

Chandler on his final stretch. He ran his 5000m race in 11:17. He came in 2nd place.




Clay on his final stretch. I love the smile. He finished his 1-mile race in 11 minutes 4 seconds. He did really good for his first race. While the boys were running, Tom was in St. George, Utah running his first marathon from his report, he did well. So everyone was running today. I'm glad the boys decided to participate in cross-country. They've really enjoyed practices, and the meet today was cool. They've met some new friends in the process too.
Way to go guys! I'm proud of you! ~Mom

Well I did absolutely nothing worth anything yesterday. That would have been great to be there to root for them. Good going boys, keep up the good work.
