Cross Country 2010

Seems like all schools are having their cross country at the moment. Jalen's was also last week at Waverley Primary School. It was a lovely day for Kobe and I, to go along and sit in the sun cheering everyone on. Jalen is in a class of 24 which includes 20 boys and 4 girls! Imagine being those 4 girls. It is actually a really lovely class and the boys absolutely love Kobe. As soon as they see him they are all over him.

As Jay walked off with the Grade 5 boys to start the race, it hit me how much shorter he is than most of them!

Jay isn't really a runner but did really well. As he came up the home straight he was really puffed out.

I saw the kid behind him about to overtake him and so did all his friends, and everyone started cheering 'Go Jay!' which made him sprint off. He beat the boy by a lot right at the end. Overall he came 7th which he was happy with.

After the race he told me he was going to get into training for next year. He always tells me that after a race and it lasts for two nights and then that is it. When Mum told him on Sunday night that I used to be good at cross country he was like 'really Mum!?'. I told him how I came 2nd in Grade 10 and in Grade 6 I went to the LSSSA and came 5th to which he was very surprised (I know - hard to believe now!). He then said 'well, I'm REALLY going to pick up my game now!'. I think he thinks if his old Mum can do well, then he should be able to as well.
