Lindsey's cross country career began today. She seems about 1/2 the size of the fastest runners, but did a great job. She was the 4th runner from her school and is the only 6th grade girl on the team.
Of course, we've improved on the teaching my parents gave me of "don't drink too much water". With the temperature at 105 when the race started, we actually encouraged her to drink some water. I guess she has been trained a little too well not to litter because she ran with the water bottle for the first mile, until she came past us and I begged it from her.
