What an awesome weekend!!

I'm staying the course for the hybrid program. Things are going really well with that. I'm feeling really good.
We had a pretty big race weekend. Regional race was held yesterday. My son placed 4th over-all =) with a time of 16:01. He has tried all season long to break the 16 minute mark. So he was really disappointed and that broke my heart that he couldn't be happy for the time that he just ran. He did snap out of it though, cause we realized shortly after that the team finished in 1st place. We move onto the state meet next Saturday!
We went to Michigan State this afternoon for the Big Ten cross country meet. My friends daughter now runs for Wisconsin. So of course we had to go cheer our Gab's on! SOOOOO much fun oh my goodness to see all these colleges and the kids running around with their school flags and all the different fight songs being sung by all the different schools...pretty awesome! Made a little sad though cause my son will be leaving for college next fall and doing this...just made it a sad thing..for a brief moment.
Johnathon and Gabi. She pushed John 2 years ago when she was still here running in high school. They both just fed off of each other. Gabi was our fastest girl and had no one to give her that competition. Johnathon and Gabi have pretty much the same pace so they really just fed off of each other. I truly believe she really helped John at that time become a better runner.
A few more shots from today's Big 10 meet
and one of her up on stage getting her 7th place award. She is First team-All conference for the Big Ten! WOOT-WOOT Gabi!
