I'm Walking On Sunshine!
Today it's absolutely beautiful outside! And warm on top of that! I always feel so much better when it's nice outside. Which is pretty great because we have our first non-practice track meet this afternoon. I absolutely love track despite the fact that I'm never really sure what I am doing as a coach. It's a definite practice in humility. I don't know all the technical jargon, I don't make our kids run with weighted parachutes, and most of our kids don't even have real track shoes. But they have a good time and we have a good time and that's all that really matters. And most of the other coaches are really nice, and more than willing to help us with minimal mocking. Today will be a good test for my kids because we will be going against schools who are a lot bigger than us, which means they have more to pick from. Small schools are always at a disadvantage in those situations. But we have a few kids who can really go after it, so we'll see. At the very least we will have a beautiful day for it!
