cross country race

Cameron ran his first cross country race today.

I'm pretty proud of him, he's pretty proud of himself… this was the first time he ran 1500 metres without having to walk and/or stop.

Don't know where he placed, don't much care. I'm just proud of him.

      Maybe it is not the most important part of this post, and it certainly is, but I would like emphasize the excellent choice of music. Perfect for this post. Regards to pictures, though my comments are missing for too long, I must say that it becomes increasingly hard to find different words to highlight the beauty of your shots. Beyond the amazing colors of autumn (thank goodness this season exists) the pictures of the race faithfully reproduce the competitive spirit and determination of the runners. Well done, though (and Marjorie will forgive me) perhaps the second needed to be a bit brighter.
      And yes, no care where he is placed, what matters is that he is proud of himself. And you of him.

      I paused Pandora for Chariots of Fire? I really did laugh out loud.
      Congratulations to C-Man!
      It's a great set, M - love the expressions you caught in the second....so determined!
