October is cross country racing...

Why is October like December?  Jam packed with activities?   With Cate and Nan running cross country, it is even crazier this year.  Hart and I have enjoyed going to the races since running is a sport all of us love.  Last week there were two very exciting xc races!

I love the sunbeam in this picture of all the girls at the starting line of the race.  This race was supposed to be on Tuesday but due to the deluge of two days of rain it was postponed to Thursday, a nice sunny day.  It was held at Forsyth County Day School, our rivals (and a team we had never beaten).  Such a lovely campus.  But as I said our team had never won against them.  But all that changed when Cate crossed the finish line a second before a FCDS runner!  Nan was only 6 seconds behind them.  All of our girls did very well.  It was such an exciting race!

Then just the next day on Friday was their next race in Lexington at Union Grove.  Another sunny day!  This was a difficult course through a field of stubble, in the woods and across a rickety bridge and that loop was to be run 3 times.  How much fun was it to watch Nan come in first with the best time so far for that course! Cate did well too, coming in at third.  In fact all the girls on FHE girls' team placed in the top ten.
My girls are fast!!  They've  had so much fun running with their team this year.  There are only a few more races left.  The final one is October 20th.  I will keep you posted!
