Footloose And Upchuck Free

I was in Missoula yesterday to watch Steph and her teammates race at the Mountain West Classic. The girls team reminded me of the boys team of yore--too many to shake a stick at. Dori Robertson has over 60 girls running cross country. She brought 42 of them to this meet.

Thirty-five freshman and junior varsity girls from Mead ran in the JV race making up over ten percent of the field--seven of the forty-six teams. How awesome to have so many come out for this sport.

Steph did great, setting a new PR of 26:07 which is four minutes faster than last week. She's working hard, eating properly before a race, and really enjoying herself.

Wow, four minutes off is pretty impressive. The only time I came close to shaving that much time (off a much slower pace) was when I was able to channel all the frustration of seeing my car explode on the smog test equipment. Yeah.
