The End of the Road
And so ends a very successful Sophomore Year of running for Alex. Today was the State Qualifier meet. They needed a miracle to get to continue to States. The miracle didn't happen. They all did a great job though. Their relay team placed 3rd in their division. You have to come in 1st or beat a qualifying time in order to continue on to States.
Alex had a great race. He's starting to feel better and is getting that confidence back. But I think it's time to rest now. The funny thing, today we received an email from the Cross Country coach. There's a meeting Monday and "unofficial" practice begins July 9th... the fun never ends!
Alex had his Track Banquet on Tuesday. This was the best I could do for a picture. He's not much into posing. I just had to get proof that he was wearing a tie.
Here are the place settings for the tables. Along with the programs I designed. I love that the Banquet hall used orange napkins and blue tablecloths. I hope we have it here again next year. The Banquet was a great success! I need to remember to bring business cards next time I do the programs though. Lots of people had nice things to say about them, maybe next year I can drum up some extra freelance work!
