First summer track meet

Andrew ran in and won the 10-and-under 800m at the McGregor summer track meet.  He ran a 2:57, which is a pretty good time–especially for his first race of the year AND given the fact that he played a late baseball game the night before. Here is the video:

YES! We beat the other McGregor team to move to 9-3!

We won a hard fought, come-from-behind victory over the other McGregor team tonight 12-11.  The team played great.  Unfortunately, about half the opposing kids refused to shake our kids’ hands.  Coach and parents: if you are reading this you need to foster better sportsmanship in your kids.  That’s one of the lessons they need to learn at this age.

How cool is this?  We ran into Jeremy Wariner by the pool at our hotel.  We interrupted his dinner of Chick-fil-A to get a picture.  He was super nice.  I’ll post more pics of the meet later, but I just had to get this out on the website.

Here is the photo album.  I’ll be adding more after today’s races:
