Track mom reporting for duty. The oldest had her first race of the season! So it was time to hit the road. (When the junior team I’m coaching doesn’t have a race, I get to go watch her.)
She had a PR on her 1600m of 5:53 both achieving her goal of wanting to break 6 minutes and getting a time that qualifies her for a varsity letter. She also competed in the 800m race and has said she’d like to improve on that time.
A few hours later it was time to head home (with a very drowsy stowaway in the backseat) to get ready for N’s honor band performance.
I had just enough time to knock out my own run and shower (nevermind having some wet hair) before getting back in the car. This time it was a family affair. We snapped a picture while waiting for the concert band to leave the stage and N’s symphonic band to get all set up.
The fact that the band can learn 4 entire pieces in about 11 hours in absolutely phenomenal. Add to that the fact that they sounded really good and holy cow that’s impressive.
