Today my daughter Z2 had her first cross country meet of the season. I drove with my friend NR today about 3 1/2 hours so we could watch our daughters participate in the meet in Libby, Montana.
Since Z2 is in eighth grade and in middle school, the length of her course is usually 1.5 miles. Today, since this was a new venue for the race, the length of this race was about 1.6 miles.
Z2 ran a very respectable time of 12.42.1. As she started the race at beautiful J. Neils park in Libby, her goal was to run until she crossed the FINISH line, then her race would end.
As she crossed the FINISH line, she ended the race in third place.
Way to go Z2. A very good time for her first race, and to get third place was awesome.
Kellogg hosts their home meet on Thursday.
I look forward to the season, and watching my beautiful Z2 "run like the wind"!!
And, as an ending to this post, here are some pictures of the beautiful Cabinet Mountains we could see from the course today.
