Cross Country Meet

Katie was supposed to have run in her very first Cross Country Meet on September 24th but she ended up being sick the day before and was trying to get some rest in order to be able to run well the next day but unfortunately policy states that if you are sick the day before a race you are not able to run in it. Katie was devastated but was able to be there to cheer her team on anyways.

She got her next opportunity for a meet at Peace Arch Park in Blaine on September 29th. It was pouring on the way there and for the start of her race. They provide the kids with really nice warm up pants and coats.

There were 80+ girls at this meet.
I was able to catch her not long after the start and then they headed up towards the Border.
Oh look the sun's coming out!!! Here comes Katie around the bend.

This is the home stretch and I think that she's about to die!!! She ran 1½ miles in 13 minutes and 10 seconds. I'm very proud of her!!!
