For the past three years my daughter has been a proud member of her high school's cross country team. Coached by the most amazing men and women, supported by wonderful parents, this is a team that really understands hard work, good sportsmanship, and family. Madeline loves being a part of it.
Now a Junior, she was invited for the third year in a row to participate in a week of high-altitude training in Mammoth. Though we always miss her-Jackson especially-it's something looks forward to and it's always exciting to see the images she and her teammates come home with. Enjoy a few snapshots of this year's cross country team in Mammoth-complete with snow and a wee bear.
