I'm flush with pride!

Post  fostever on Wed Sep 26, 2012 11:25 am

Last night my daughter whose in 10th grade ran her first CC race at the urging of her gym teacher/ cc coach. She has only worked out with the team twice and ran 5 times total leading up to yesterday. Well, she placed 53rd out of 273 overall in an all comers invite (varsity, JV, frosh) and 3rd for the team. Crazy thing is she didn't look tired and it looked like a jog in the park. It was a 2mile race, shorter than the usual 3 they normally run, so she'll be running in the frosh/soph race at the big invitational on Saturday over where we start our group long runs. Her time was 14:19. I'm really stoked about her joining the team, but I have to let her decide if she wants to pursue it since I've learned the hard way not to micro-manage these things. Her studies are her #1 priority and that is why she hasn't involved herself in too many extra curricular activities.

Awesome! And don't forget to remind her that colleges look quite favorably on extra curricular activities like that so it will do nothing but help her in the long run.
