I've also got all the "appointments" done - you know, the ones that you put off all season because there is no possible way to have enough time to do them when training hard - car appointment, eye appointment, vet appointment, dentist appointment (yuck).
And I've turned into super spectator as of recent as well. During my last blog I was at the district high school cross country championships to root on Oscar's teams as they ran for a chance to qualify for the state meet. Both his boys and girls teams made it which was exciting (but also expected as they've been running well all year). I really enjoyed watching the races. Three sisters from North Hills went 1-2-4 in the girls race to help their team to victory (O's team was 2nd place). I positioned myself on the homestretch to see if the sisters would race each other all the way to the line or they would finish "together." Can you guess? They definitely fought tooth and nail for the victory. I have to say, I probably would have duked it out with my own sister too. :)

|The conditions were horrendous - this photo doesn't do justice to the amount of mud on the course!|
And because of all this talk of high school cross country, I dug up a picture of my freshman year in high school when my team won the state championship. I'll let you guess which one I am... :)
