XC Season has begun

The Bear. Focused and Determined.

Brooke has had two cross country meets this past week and took 1st place at both meets. The first was the Del Oro meet last Thursday night and then this past Friday was the Rocklin Invitational. She's running strong and it looks like she will have another great season! Here are some photos from the meets.

Mom and Brooke as the sun is setting and Brooke has finished her "cool down", which is running another few miles after her race...just for fun!

It was an un"bear"ably (no pun intended) hot and humid day at the Rocklin Invitational. Ashley and I were miserable just watching Brooke run! It was real rough:)! After the race, Ash was going to give Brooke a hug until she realized that she was soaking wet. Brooke tried to convince Ash that it was only a little bit of sweat, but mostly wet from dousing herself with a huge cup of water as soon as she crossed the finish line.

Now that Brooke has "dried out", Mom and Ashley are happy to hug and celebrate!

Dad and Brooke. Absolutely adorable!
