It was the usual chaos at Trout Lake this year...barely contained mayhem. No Molly there this year, which made me sad...it is only for elementary students.
There were over 3,000 students there to run...nuts! Below is a picture of Lukey's race. There were 307 boys in his Grade 4 race. You can see him about thirteen kids over from the right in long red socks (they were the socks Eric wore for a dodgeball competition...they have capes sewn on them!).
Lukey had a great run, coming in the top 30. He's not a runner, so he was pretty pleased with that.
Here's Finny at the front of the mosh pit that served as a marshalling area for the Grade 6 girls:
And here's a part of the start line for her race. Again, there were close to 300 girls.
Finny had a great race and came 7th. She was very happy to have her good buddy Sophie there to cheer her on and help her warm up. In fact, all was good until we ran into this zombie in the park parking lot. There was (hopefully) some filming in the area and this zombie was straight up terrifying. They should have had him chasing the kids from the back of the race and I am sure the times would have all been faster!
And as always, a trip to Dairy Queen on the way home to celebrate a job well done.
I am proud of both of the kids for going out for all the mini-meets and the big race. Carrying on the family tradition. All we were missing was Moll...
