First race of the season (why can't I capture him in a better pose? ever!)
13 schools (did I mention I drove 80 miles ONE way to see this race)
134 runners (holey moley!)
Varsity Squad
26th place overall
3.1 miles
big rain storm coming
1st place for the team.....priceless...

Ok, there were 9 guys total running for our school, but the top 7 scored and Nick and three other guys finished top 30 which brought the team score to 74.....and that was all it took to win one for the team (I say that as if it was easy to run around in the 90 degree super humid weather!!). I am not showing the other members to protect the innocent...I just got lucky Nick was standing next to coach and the trophy....

and did I mention his name was in the paper too...gotta save that one!

How cool is this? Very!

Please give Nick a big Congrats from me. WTG!!

To think he is only a Freshman, it looks like good things are going to come, through the season. Keep me posted on results.

Ok, I need to finish getting ready for work.

That's great for Nick! And he did a very good time too. Can't imagine how uncomfortable the weather must have been for them.
