Track and Field

It's track season again and Anastasia was ready to join the team again at our local middle school. A couple of her friends were there from last year but she said there were mainly all new kids. She trains really hard as they have practice 5 days a week for one hour. The season lasted for about a month and a half. This year her events were going to be the hurdles and high jump. There are four meets in the season and unfortunately she only got to compete in the first two. Then she hurt her leg (we think possible shin splints) so she wasn't able to compete in the last two. Talk about a disappointment for her! But I was so proud she still wanted to go to the practices and the meets to support her team.

Here she is (below) doing the high jump. I didn't get any pictures of her doing the hurdles because I was video taping it.

I took this picture of Joshua and Jadon walking back to the car after one of the meets. I just thought it was cute! ;)

So Anastasia has one more year at the middle school and then she can move on and compete at the high school. She is going to work on strengthening her legs and might even do cross country in the fall.
