Kelbie's first cross country meet at Tipton

The course was 1.5 miles and after the nerves at the start, it was a piece of cake for her to run. Last Saturday we got home after dark and she still WANTED to go for a run, so I rode my bike along side her. It was a beautiful night for a run. She now says that a 2 mile run is no problem on a regular basis.
Yesterday was Kelbie's first cross country meet and her first competition in organized school sports. Wow! I'm getting old. I was so proud of her and the effort she made. She finished the race and was smiling and having a good time, so maybe all of the running I have encouraged her to do hasn't been pure torture :) !! The team aspect of cross country is so AWESOME. It is an incredible sport to be a part of.
