Track 2010

Nathaniel finished track recently. He ended up with both jogging class and PE in the same semester and so with track practice after school he would run up to 5 miles a day on top of doing P90X in PE. I was very impressed that he did all of this and it has definitely created a more lean, even more ravenously hungry boy.

Almost looks like he is smiling here! The boys in front are fast. Some of these kids regularly run in triathlons and marathons. They are very competitive as you might imagine.

This last event was kind of left to those who stayed for the whole meet because by this time everyone is exhausted and just wants to go home. Needless to say the boys weren't going their fastest. The meets ran at least 3 hrs and the last one went all day. Peter and I took turns on that one.
He did well, scored some good points for his team and plans on doing it next year. I asked him if he was planning to try out for the high school track team (the Jr High goes through 9th grade, but you can run on the high school team if you qualify) and he said no. He wanted to be able to show up all those 7th and 8th graders. Oh Nathaniel. You kill me.
