Cross Country

For the first time ever Grace came home and said she wanted to run cross country this Fall.  I sort of blew it off and said, "You have to be able to run a mile."  Usually she remembers that and decides she doesn't want to do it.  Well, not this she decided she would train.  She started by running around the block.  Each day she added another lap. She then asked Uncle Chris to run with her and when he couldn't her dad did.  Pretty soon she could run a mile without stopping.  We headed off to the meets and that girl blew our socks off yet again.  Each week she kept getting a little better and a little faster.  By her last race she had taken over a minute off of her original running time.  She has now set her sights on earning the Presidential Fitness Award in gym class.
