Back at It

After a little time off due to an injury and a rain out, the girls were back at it this week. With a lot more success than the last time I might add. Again, the girls ran a 4 X 200 M Relay together finishing first for the meet. Stephanie really helped out with her burst of speed passing a couple of girls to put the team in a solid lead.

Stephanie then ran the 300 M Hurdles. She really looks good running the hurdles, pictures can not do it justice. She finished first in her heat, and finished third for the entire meet. Her speed would improve if she tried going over with her left foot first every once in a while.

Julia's running style continues to improve. She ran the 200 dash and finished second behind her nemisis Emily Stoks(See previous story "Kidnapping at Sage House") by .036 of a second. Still very impressive, Emily is quite fast.

The Long Jump is still in the mix for Jules. She is working very hard at it.

The meet finished with Julia running in the 4 X 400 M Relay. Not such a good ending to the meet. I think the 400 M was a little intimidating for Julia. It was a good learning experience.

We are still learning to take action photos with the new camera, you can see our attempts at the track meet in the photo albums to the left.

  1. The action photos were fun to see. Is it my imagination or what? it looks like stephi is actually enjoying herself, more than other sports i've seen her play? in the beginning, she was worried about the hurdles but looks like she's doing a splendid job and really into it now.
    go girls!
