Off and Runnin!


(This pics taken just after Isaac took first on the mile!)

Isaac convinced the girls to join him in track this season. Wow! They are all doing well. First meet: Isaac came in 1st in mile (by a mile!) and 800, 2nd in shotput; Anna came in 1st in 800, 2nd in mile by 2 seconds, and Emily and Anna were on the same team for the 4X4 race and came in 2nd! Wow! (Did I already say that?)

Anna says herself she didn't realize how competitive she is until she started track this season. She can't STAND to have someone in front of her. Emily's always just seconds behind her and, in their first practice race, impulsively called out, "Anna, wait for me!" Needless to say, Anna didn't wait. We all watch amazed as tiny Anna takes on all the tall 7th,8th, and 9th graders and leads the way on the track, Emily's never far behind her though!

Way to go, Kids!

Isacc, what was your mile time? My dad says I have to run a mile 6:05 or under at age 11. (He ran a 6:06 mile at age 11)only 1 more year. I bet you ran a 3:30 mile!
