My trip to upstate New York had a certain sporty theme to it. We had a triple header of sports to watch. Today you get part two! My niece was taking part in a cross country meet for her high school. She was glad to be running again after having been out with an injury for a while.
The course was a fun one for spectators but less so for the runners I imagine. A section lower down the hill was apparently quite damp – one girl lost her shoe but continued without it – and the climb back up to the main viewing area looked like something I was glad someone else was doing.
I only saw Sara’s race in full. There were plenty of other age groups at different times and the guys were racing as well but I wasn’t there to see them. Family viewing is what counts. Here are a couple from the day. It’s hard to photograph cross country runners since they always seem to be in so much pain. Most of the pictures involve expressions that I am sure they would not be too grateful about if I were to share them with the world. I’m a nice guy I guess!
