Chase did awesome at her first meet at her new gym...America's Best Kids. She was so nervous, she didn't sleep for 3 days because she was running her routines over and over. She was within .025-.10 all meet of taking it all but what a great first step into a new realm of competition!

Here's the album...the pics say it all...except that I didn't feel in shape. I ran the 10 mile hill climb at Granite Man the week before and thought, hey, if I can train 5-6 miles I'll surely be able to push it to 10 for the race...I did. So I thought that theory would work for CLR since my longest leg was only 6.6 miles. WRONG...I forgot about the other contributing factors that DON'T work in your favor when participating in CLR...like...no sleep for 2 days, hot weather (I run at 6 am at home to avoid the heat), lack of good nutrition, cramped in a car and running 3 times in 1.5 days instead of 1 time every 3 days. Anyway, things to work on for next year...train and train hard! All in all, I love my team of runners and our support team that cooked for us at the end of the race and set up a great celebration house to come together and laugh, share and hug hug hug!!!

Oops...the end of the tournament got very crazy but in the end, we took home 2nd place. Not only were we spared another 2 weeks of baseball and a week in Portland for the state tourney...we gained our SUMMER!!! Hallelujah, we are relaxed happy campers now enjoying the HOTHOTHOT weather, boating on the lake and an open free schedule...ahhh...big sigh...

The plan was for me and my girlies to cut all of our hair off together...I wasn't ready for a crazy short bob so I waited...today I cut off 10 inches and feel like me again...ahh...long hair is not me...ah...this feels GREAT!!!
