Emily and Joshua both had their big meets of the season last week. Both of them did fantastic!
Josh came in first place in his division and is the All City Champ. Not only that, he beat his own best time. He is 7th grade and ran in the 7-8 graders division. Pretty awesome to see him beat those bigger guys.
Emily came in second place for her school She ran with the varsity team, even tho she is a sophomore. It was the rainiest day! Which made for the muddiest meet ever! Those runners were covered in mud. Part way through the race, she lost a shoe, but she continued on without it. Her sock is forever brown now, I am sure. It reminded me of when her Dad was a little runner and did the same...as he ran into the woods and out of our sight, they hit a mud hole and he lost his shoe, when he came back out of the woods at another point, he yelled "I lost my shoe in the mud!" He was running along with only one shoe on. It was hilarious. He just kept on going to the end. Afterwards, we had to go and search the mud for his sunken shoe. This time, it was her Dad going back to where Emily had lost it to retrieve it for her. How time repeats itself.
