A Bulldog on the track

Today was the big track meet for Brenna!  The school offered a short (2 week) intramural track season for the 6th graders, and I do think Brenna has found her thing.  From the time she ran her 5K last summer, I knew she would gravitate towards this as a sport at some point.  I think that point has come.

She has been working on running the mile, the 4x100 relay, and learning the long jump.  Since her legs are about a mile long each, this worked out quite well for her.  Well, the running part, anyway.  The jumping part needs some more learning.

Here are the happy highlights:

the Bulldogs getting one last pep-talk

one last stretch...cue the "Rocky" music!

At the start of the mile...

...and they're off!

Brenna crossed the finish line in 3rd place, with a time of 7.22!!

Great job, Brenna!  I'm so proud of you, and I love you so much!!!
