Misty jog

It was cool and misty at the end of the school day today. Without any threat of storms, we took the cross country kids out for a tempo run. It was really great running weather. My crew started out a little fast but 2 out of the 3 surprised me by picking up the pace on mile 2! I looped back to encourage our newest runner. She admitted that her first mile was too fast but that she really wants to get faster. She has dreams of West Point. She will need to get faster but she will also need to pace herself. I look forward to continuing to see her grow over the next 2 cross country seasons even if I will be watching from the sidelines. Twenty one more workdays until the move. My youngest and I made a countdown calendar to hang on the fridge. Transitions are often hard even when they are good.
