Last Cross Country Meet



The Smile Mile this past weekend, concluded the cross country season.
She finished at 8 min, 32 sec, her personal best for the mile. It was 41 cold and windy degrees that morning, but she was determined to wear shorts since sweats would slow her down. Besides, she is never cold. She will miss running. Three days a week, since the start of the school year, they meet and run at 7:30 am, rain or shine or cold.
Now the Girl Scout cookies have arrived, so we'll be sitting at booths this weekend selling cookies. No school on Fri., it's Rodeo Day at the county fair. We won't be attending the rodeo, but she is anxiously looking forward to the fair.
We haven't heard yet whether she'll win a trophy for running this year. They won't have the awards ceremony until just before the end of the school year. But she's hoping she'll win one. I think her chances are good since, in addition to a few school-sponsored meets, and the Smile Mile, she also ran a 5k and a 5.2k.
Not really sure why, but two of the Tampa Bay Buccaneer cheerleaders were at the Smile Mile, so M. wanted her picture taken with them.
