Today was his first 'home' meet for cross-country. His team helped to build the course at Roberts Farm in Norway. It was a loop trail that went out through the woods, which they ran around twice. After the first loop, they would run back into the field near the start/finish line, make a big turn, and then head back into the woods. Coach added a stack of hay bales into that big turn, thinking it would be interesting to see how many of the competitors would actually jump them. My boy was one of the jumpers! The best part were the huge grins that each of the kids wore upon landing that jump. It must have been FUN!
