1. Cross Country 2. Sunday Sign

I was awoken very early this morning (8:00 a.m.) and invited to come out and see my great niece run in a cross country race. They called as they were on their way. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to let me know! I know to most people 8 a.m. is not early but it's pretty early for me these days! Since I was pretty much awake I drove on out to see her run. This was only the second race she'd ever run in. I wore short sleeves and it was quite chilly with a good breeze blowing. Most everyone had on sweatshirts. I refused to complain about the chill since it's been so hot! Buses were coming in from other schools around the state. Finally they got them lined up and shot off the starting gun. The course was a little over a mile. Here you see them taking off at the start. My great niece is in there somewhere! Look at our long shadows on the ground!
She did really well and came in 14th place!! I thought that was wonderful. She wasn't even good and winded either. I would not have made it up the first hill myself. The course went up several little hills at the beginning and then they were out of sight for a while and in the final stretch it was a slight downgrade. The leader was a little bitty blonde girl who seemed to not be one bit winded!! I enjoyed it and I'm glad I went. I think she said the course was 1.1 mile and she did it in a little over 8 minutes! I might do it in 80 minutes. That would be more my speed!!

This is not a good picture but that's her in the center in the orange and white, and the next runner is just barely in the edge to the right. The others were onlookers.

After that they had the boys race and we stayed to watch that one.

I think your great neice did really great in that race. Surely you & I could walk it in less than 80 minutes don't you think? It might be a stretch, but I think we could possibly cut it down to about an hour. hehehe

As usual, your Sunday Signs give us direction & meaning.

I used to run track........ sigh. I timed how long it took me to walk completely around my property the other day - the 2 acres that is not jungle, that is.
Oh, nuts - there goes the phone... I gotta work today.
I wanted to tell you we got nearly 2 inches of rain. I thought about you and prayed to send some your way!

Good for your great-neice being involved in sports.They didn't have cross country available to girls in my day and i always wished they would have.
Of course, you don't see me running like that on my own time!

Great sunset pics Rachel.
Lovely day with the relatives. That kind of stuff will keep you young.
8 A.M.? It's hard to get up with the chickens when you go to bed with the owls.

I doubt God needs anyone's advice.
Funny sign!

Your niece is quite the runner!
I am such a slow runner. My kids say I look like Fred Flinstone when he's driving his car with his feet.
I guess I have lots of motion going on, but VERY little forward momentum to show for it.
I'm glad you got up early and went to see your niece.
I'm sure she was very happy you came!

Sounds like you had a fun but busy day. The tobacco in this area is picked off the stalk in the field and then placed in a tobacco barn where it is kept heated for several weeks till the tobacco is cured. Where I grew up we cut the stalks and hung it in the barn to air cure so this was new to me too.

Laugh-out-loud sign! I confess, I am sometimes guilty of trying to tell HIM what to do! HA!

Rachel,

I'm sure, in spite of the early hour, it was a fun time watching the kids run- and your great niece did great!!! :)

Your signs that you find are wonderful. You must have to do a lot of riding around to find so many!

She did very good for so many runners in attendance. I can walk one mile in 20 minutes...notice I said walk....no running for me.

The sign is probably true.

9:50 PM  
Blogger Tossing Pebbles in the Stream said...

Oh to be young again and be able to run around effortlessly. To walk to the end of my property and back (2miles) is a major expedition which leaves me exhausted.

Blogger OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Great Sign, Rachel...!

I had to laugh when you said you wouldn't get up that first hill...I'm with you on that! I'm not sure I could go very long at all, anymore....But it is so wonderful that she was a part of it!

3:52 PM  
Blogger Britmum said...

I am glad that you had a nice day.

I used to run as a child but I could't do it for now, thats for sure.

Sorry I have been away so long. Life got in the way a bit.

Take care xx
