Our son heads off to XC Districts today. So nervous for his team! Glad the season is coming to a close. I can't take the stress of those meets I tell you! The Metro meet last week was intense.
These two guys times fell recently so it was critical that they improved at this meet. If their times weren't good enough they wouldn't go on to Districts. They kept pace with each other throughout the meet...the pressure was ON! Look at how close he was at the end of this 5K:
Drake passed his team mate within hundredths of a second. They both qualified for Districts, thankfully! It was soo exciting to watch!
Healthy competition is good! I know Drake ran his fastest time ever that day.
That meant I got a few shots of smiles...
We got a bonus smile that day, too. He won an All Conference Academic Award! There were about 15 guys out of 500 or so that won that hard to get award.
I won't be able to go to today's meet, but hubby is. I packed a treat bag for him though. Lots of protein bars and almonds and trail mix! Go bulldogs!
