Making History (and Mom Cry!)

This is a digression from my typical postings, but a little bragging is in order. My children are both top quality runners (if I do say so!) and this past weekend, my oldest, a high school senior, did his team, his family, and himself proud!

Competing in the (unofficial) Illinois Indoor State Championships for track and field, my son and his teammates won the 4 x 800m relay. Their time: 7:58.10! They finish the indoor season as the #1 Illinois relay, the only team to break 8 minutes, and the #30 fastest in the US! He came back an hour later to finish 9th individually in the 1600m in a time of 4:25 - his personal best. He has faced much adversity in his high school running career and we couldn't be more proud and thrilled for his success!

  1. Utterly fantastic. You have very good cause to be proud. What a picture -- they all look so lean and strong, both. This is a big memory being created here!
