Abby went out for track two weeks ago and had her first Jr High meet in Detroit Lakes on Friday, April 23rd. It was a perfect track day, 70 degrees and no wind! It really took me back 20+ years ago to the days when it was me on the track field.... complete with the anxiety.
The second event for Abby was a relay. Abby ran the lead leg in the 4x100m and hadn't had much time to practice the all important hand-off to Kiana, so they worked on it before the race.
Then it was time for the real thing...
The 4 girls ran in this order: Abby, Kiana, Paige & Megan. They placed 6th overall.
Abby ran in the 100m and 200m dashes as well. It was a great first experience for Abby and I am so happy that I was able to be there. She already had another track meet on Monday, April 26th in Breckenridge. Steve and Grandma Rose went to the meet which really pleased Abby. Only two more meets to go and the brief season will be over. Looks like we have another runner in the family.
