Yesterday marked the end of the regular season for my son’s cross country team. He has enjoyed a lot of success, learned a bunch about running, and had a really really good time!
Yesterday’s meet was important. It was a fast course where many people set PRs. It was the last meet before Pac10 championships. There were a lot of people there to watch my boy, and he was fighting to keep his varsity spot. Pressure pressure pressure!!
I believe I have written about my son before so I won’t drone on- he is unbelievably hard working and has a laser focus on his goals. He is competitive and dedicated and gives 150% in all he does. Sorry, I guess I can’t help but drone on…he’s so cool.
Yesterday was beautiful- the weather was awesome, everyone was in a great mood, and the race was fast! My son ran an awesome race!
On the way home I asked him a question that I am surprised I have never asked him before. I said, “What did you think about today when you were running”. I was fully expecting his replay to be about his varsity spot, finishing strong to help the team, setting a season PR…but his reply was “I don’t know, I guess I was just thinking that I am happy to be running”. Whoa. How cool is that?
So all you ladies and gents, lace those sneaks up today and RUN HAPPY!!!!
