The summer track meets were a blast this year. We attend 4 of the 6 (out of town for the final 2 meets). Addy really had a great time being on her running club team this year. In the past we have just entered individually, and she love, loved, loved being surround by her friends.
We lucked out with amazing (even hot!) weather for each meet. But man, they are LONG! The 100m heats take over an hour alone. All the kids competed in 4 events each week. They could pick and choose which races to run, but for the most part did the 100m, 200m or 400m, long jump, and softball throw.

Rylan was so excited for track this year...his first official time as a participant. He loved his running shoes and was convinced they made him run faster, faster, faster. He was sure fun to watch as he is running in his lane, waving to the crowd, crossing lanes, and smiling the entire way. Trev and I would split up and put one at the start and one at the finish...he needed the nudge at each end (to start and then to stop!)
They all did really well and were sure troopers. I couldn't do this without Trevor, and he sure does love helping his kidlets with track. Getting 3 kids to their various events all around the field at different times, while pushing the baby in the stroller, and trying to get some pictures. It was exhausting. I usually left Trevor there with the big kids for the last few events and took the little boys home. They weren't pulling in until after 10pm! They all really enjoyed it, and it was a fun (and cheap!) activity for summer. Addy starts cross country season in September. She's excited to run in her first road race!
