From the ashes, beauty will rise

Shot putter's dirty tee shirt
Typical outcome for a right handed shot putter.


Ran four miles to meet the High School Coach. Then ran four miles home.

Mile seven came in at 7:15, a miracle considering how shaky the right calf felt.

i swear after two miles of slow running, i had to slow it down even more. Felt like something bad (like a small muscle pull or tear) was imminent.

But the real beauty was having Coach understand that our Son was on the Track & Field team by default. Coach Williams is an encourager.
