Day 1014 -- Jensen

The Jensen meet is sort-of an county all-star meet at Ella Sharp Park.  We always make this meet optional for our athletes because it's an individual competition, and no team scores are calculated.  We have had one or two of our runners place in the top 25 before, which earns you recognition at a banquet in November.  It's a nice event, but we haven't really enjoyed widespread success as a team.  I always feel bad for our kids, who, for lack of a better term, have gotten waxed year after year and walked away mostly empty handed.

Well, the day started out with me getting to bike in the glorious weather from my house to the park, as the meet had a unheard-of late 3 pm start.

In the girls race, we only had a few show up, but of the ones that did, three made the all-county team and one got her season's best time!  So three of our girls will be attending the dinner -- the most in a very long time.

In the guys race, most of our team raced, and four of our guys place in the top 25 and will be earning recognition.  2 made the all county team.

I was so proud of them and it was so much fun to watch them experience some well-deserved success.

Thank God for Jensen!

Lord, thank you for the successful race today.  Thank you for my wonderful team and for the joy they bring to my life.  In your name I pray, Amen.
