Cross Country Wrap-up

As you all know, I had the very great opportunity to help a bit with Monte Vista's cross country team this season. Although I only got to get out there once a week, it was a TON of fun. Getting to know the students a bit more was really a blessing to me and I look forward to getting to know them even more as time goes on.

On Friday there was a little party commemorating the season and I was able to show up with the kids for a little bit. We watched The Office episode where they run the 5K for Rabies. Seriously, so, so funny. The running jokes in that episode are just classic. We also enjoyed some food and got to say good-bye to the season.

I love running and I love connecting with high school girls. So it was really special for me to marry those two passions. I'm thankful to my mom and hubby for giving that gift to me.

Today they ran their finals. I'm so proud of those kids!! Go Mustangs!!

  1. Wait a minute...I have no idea how I didn't pick up on this before, but funny thing...I went to Monte Vista my sophomore year of high school! It's actually where I became a Christian and I have a lot of life long friends from that year (jr and sr year were at SLOHS) So funny when I see your AGO/LSM pictures and see some of my best high school friends, and then seeing this post, but I've never even met you. It's a small world. :)
