Coach Zimmerman and our friends the Gasner's with their daughter Kelsey. We are sort of the crazy parents that follow the team around.
Erika and her 4X800 team getting ready to run.
The lead runner Brooke
Brooke hands the baton off to Jane
Jane hands off to Carissa
And Carissa hands off to Erika.
She ran a good anchor leg of the race. She posted a really good time.
But sadly, the team's time wasn't enough to get them in to the finals :(
The last race of the night was sweet Sarah's 10K run. This race is brutal - something like 24-25 times around the track. It was late. Well after 9pm and very cold by now. Yet, Sarah somehow ran the fastest time she has ever run. She came in 8th place which she was very happy with.
We didn't stick around to watch the men's 10K ~ it was just to cold and they were running it in 2 heats so we watched it via a 'live stream' back at the hotel. That was fun and we were much warmer :)
I'm leaving you with a picture of my other daughter, Michelle. The unofficial 'official' photographer for the team. She and her dad even had press passes so they could get down on the field. Lucky people!
Back tomorrow for more track fun.
