<p>:)  This thread makes me happy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>JR ran his first CC meet last week.  He didn't do as well as we thought he would.  He lined up mid pack and got stuck in the bunching, then got tripped just past mile 1 and fell (that kid was disqualified).  His time was 13:46 for the 2 mile.  He should be able to take a minute off pretty easily by just lining up in a better spot, breaking out of the pack a little earlier and staying on his feet. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm proud of him no matter what.</p>

<p>That kid should be DQ'd.  Doesn't he have an illeagal uniform on?  I heard DQ'ing kids for uniform and jewelery violations is all the rage these days.  ;)</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congrats to the kidlets!<br><br>

<p>dg1,  technically you are correct, but no one really gives a crap in the jv races...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>However, if he makes it to Varsity, he'll have to be in the correct uniform.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>His reason he's in the t-shirt:  "All the HS girls took all the smalls, and there were none left for us little guys!"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So he, and the other two 7 grade boys are in t-shirts.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yesterday, was meet #2.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Coach Jr. got 10th out of 102 runners in the JV boys race.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>coachette got 24th, I think, and she said she could have done much better, but got stuck behind a bottleneck on a bridge, and had to walk for a bit...(still 5 seconds faster than Saturday).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Things are looking good.</p>

<p>Jewna- DQd in an XC race? Did the other kid throw a punch or something? :p</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thats not too shabby for a first race though.......i went from around 19 for 2 miles in my first race in 7th grade to 18 for 5k in HS to 29 for 5 miles in college, so he's way ahead of me and there's always a big improvement curve early on.  One drill that i've done before is practice starts, where you get the team together and have them practice getting out aggressively.  Naturally it's very course dependent; it doesnt matter as much if you're running in open fields the whole time, but the vast majority of courses have points where they significantly narrow into wooded trails, sometimes very abruptly.  So they are good skills to know and it's good to know your courses as well...hopefully they are doing course walkthroughs before the race. </p>

<p>I hvae no clue what happened.  The way the course was laid out, we could only see the start and the finish.  I *heard* he got shoved, but he says he got tripped, so who knows.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This was his first time running in his spikes, too, so I'm sure that was a little odd.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The kid on our team who won ran a 10:40 somthing.  He normally comes in right at 10:00, but it was really, really hot out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm excited to see him doing well and liking it, too.  I hope he keeps working hard and stops trying to pace with his friends.  He has potential and needs to push himself a bit.  But, I'm giving suggestions and letting the coach do the coaching.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's fun to watch these kids :)<br><br>

<p>Mrs. coach and I were unable to attend yesterday's meet, as we were both working, but my wife's boss was able to go.</p>
<p>(he has a daughter on the team also)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And he just sent this e-mail to my wife.  (names changed to protect the innocent)</p>

<p>As you know, your son coach jr. runs hard and seems to be a fighter.  Yesterday he ran hard and when he finished was worn out (you know that sprint to the finish using every ounce of energy).  He finishes the race and who is there to walk him over to the Chamberlain Camp?  His sister coachette.  She walks him arm and arm, talking to him and telling him he ran a good race, trying to make him feel better. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So you should be proud of coachette.  It is nice to see siblings taking care of one another. </p>

<p>The fact that these two tend to fight nearly every moment of their existence at home goes out the window during CC, evidently.</p>

<p>I've updated the picture album with pics from yesterday's race.</p>
