Back from South Carolina after a couple days on the road. I am so proud of Lil Fort! She raced her heart out at AAU Cross Country Nationals, dropping over a minute, and finishing 6th overall. This is the first real competition she's had in a XC race this year and that made a huge difference. She ran 10:49 in the 11-12 3K. The competition was fiercer this year than in previous years. We theorize that people are boycotting USATF Nationals in NM bc of the altitude. There were teams from CA, TX, FL, etc.
Unfortunately, I felt like crap in the water after 2 days of very poor sleep and travel. Reminds me of my pre-Auburn power outage debacle. I also seemed to have strained my lower right calf muscle sprinting at top speed around the cross country course with Mr. Fort to cheer for Lil Fort. I hope it feels better by next Saturday. Prolly falls in the category of doing dumb things while tapering. But it was worth it!
NE Champs is up to 412 swimmers with one day to go. I've been watching SPSM results. I notice they start at 12-1 pm each day -- jealous!
