Cross Country Meet at SHAPE

 Today was a more traditional cross country meet for Allen.  His uniform and warm-ups were clean and dry so he wore them to the meet.

Today's meet was notable for two other reasons -

1.  The sun was shining

2.  The meet was at SHAPE - a home meet.

It was nice not to have to carry an umbrella or break out my Alaska rain gear to watch Allen run.  It was also nice not to have to devote an entire day (or more) to watching Allen run.  Kyle is giddy contemplating what errands he can do today.

The course wasn't overly thrilling.  It was simply a loop around the track, football field, gym and surrounding grounds.  The runners had to circle three times before crossing the finish line at the 50 yard line.

I helped monitor the course so I was able to watch Allen run by a few times before going to the finish line.
Allen finished in the middle group of runners and then enjoyed hanging out with friends.
