Yesterday afternoon Laurel Park in St. Peters was the site of a huge cross country meet for St. Louis area Lutheran schools with every single grade (K-8) having its own race. Boys and girls had their own heat in these age groups. There were tons of kids competing and it was nice to see exercise in the form of running make them excited and actually very supportive of their friends and opponents.
Before the races began some of the CCLS boys had some fun with Nick who would have, if given half a chance, got himself into a race.
Before their race I asked some of Christian's teammates to face me so I could get a good shot.
Ok. The best I could do. They are 3rd and 4th graders.
Here's the start of Connor's race K-2 boys.
Connor's in the middle wearing black.
Christian's group gets some advice from the coach.
And they're off
Unfortunately for Christian and Connor, Nickie dumped out all their water before the races even began. Hopefully they watered up when they got home.
