District Cross Country Meet

Today was Malcolm’s last race of the season. It was a very large race for all the 8th graders in our school district. We had to leave the house at 7:30 to make the 45 minute drive so Malcolm could have enough time to warm up and preview the course with his team. It was a very hilly and challenging course. He started conservatively and passed a lot of people at the end, it was a great race. This video was taken about 1/4 of the way into it. The runners were a LOT more spread out at the end.

There are a few more photos here.

I ran 2 hilly hours in the afternoon on challenging trails for what was my last significant workout before my 100-miler in two weeks. I saw another tiny rattlesnake, this one wasn’t in any hurry to move out of the way. I had to spit some water on it to get it going.

I’m feeling very strong, but have a few tweaks and sore/tight spots I’m trying to get rid of. The next several days of stretching and light running will hopefully take care of them. It’s coming up fast!!
