Today marks the first day of summer vacation for all the kids, although Brett says it doesn’t officially start until Monday, because they wouldn’t have had school today anyway. For those of you that have been following the boys during track season, I’d have to say that both boys had a good season. Brett ran the 3200 m race and his best time was 11:29. Adam competed mainly in the 1600 m run and his best time was 5:49. Both gained a great deal of experience that they will be able to build on in the future.

 But the running isn’t done. Now it’s time to get their base summer miles so that they will be ready for cross country season in the fall. The coach expects them to log their summer miles. They will be working to get enough miles to join either the 200 or 300 mile club. Cross country camp, which involves camping and running in Forestville State Park is a highlight of their summer.

 All of us are looking forward to Grandma’s in two weeks. It’s not just the running, but the activities that will take place and a chance to visit with friends we’ve made along the way.

 The boys have their goals for the summer and looking ahead on the calendar; it looks like it’s going to be busy. Here’s to summer!
