This week was a blur. I think I had some sort of activity after work every day. It's that time of year! On Wednesday, Alex had a cross country meet, but he didn't run. He was having some pain in his back, so he took the day off and cheered on his teammates instead.
The boy from Central Square (in the maroon) is the son of a co-worker. Alex met him at running camp this summer and did volunteer work with him at the station too. They became fast (no pun intended) friends. Alex is cheering him on here. It would have been fun for them to run together, but it wasn't meant to be. Alex is feeling a little better and is still working hard. There was a big invitational today, but Coach kept the Top 6 runners out of the race and had them do a workout instead. They have a really big dual meet on Tuesday against their rival Baldwinsville, so they're focusing on that. It should be a great meet.
I ended up working today, so it was good Alex didn't run today. I've somehow started helping out with event planning. Which has really been a lot of fun. It's a lot different from what I usually do. We're having an Emmy Party tomorrow evening. This is what the studio looked like at noon today after all the rental furniture arrived.
And this is what it looked like at 4pm, after we finished setting up the studio. Mind you, there were only 2 of us. That was a lot of work! But, it was fun. I think the party will be a lot of fun too. I'll be sure to take some photos to post. We ended up getting a red carpet for the entry, but I forgot to take pictures of that.
