Cross Country kids

Our three oldest all joined their schools' cross country teams this year, and I'm so glad they did. It's been a challenge, but really good for them. I love it when they do hard things. Emma wants to get in shape and try out for the track team in the spring, Ben is the only one who actually likes running longer distances, and initially Josh declined when the others were talking about joining, but we didn't actually give him a choice gently suggested it might be a good idea to stretch himself a little.

The boys run one mile at their meets, and Emma runs two for middle school. They are all working hard and getting stronger and we are very proud of their effort.

Elementary school boys line up at the start. Bonus: gorgeous east TN scenery!

Coming up on the finish line

Feeling. the. burn.

Cheerfully passing a slacker. Bonus: look at that muscley shoulder!

Sprinting to the end
The whole family has fun.
