It's a great day to be a Grizzly XC runner!

Brooke has always ran well at the Stanford Invitational
and this year was no different than the rest,
finishing 2nd place in the seeded race with a time of 17:42,
30 seconds faster than her time last year on the same course!
It was a great race and a great time
but even more exciting is that her team finished 2nd,
beating some of the great teams from So. Cal.
They are really on a roll and having a lot of fun!
I love. Love. LOVE. this picture!
The expressions on the girls faces are priceless!
The traditional picture posing on the course at the end of the day,
holding up 2 fingers to represent finishing 2nd in the race.

The first mile of the race with Brooke (bib #769) with the front of the pack.

The shoes that flew around the course that day!

Dad and Brooke enjoying a moment together after the race
(and apparently a PowerBar too!)
"It's rough watching Brooke run that fast! It takes a lot of energy!" says Dad!

Brooke is so happy that Kimber came to see her race!

Weston and Brooke. What a cute cousin!
He raced in the varsity boys race and then cheered for Brooke in her race.

Mom and Brooke happy with Brooke coming in 2nd place
and her team coming in 2nd place too!
The Granite Bay girls XC team and 2nd place finishers at the Stanford Invitational!
Congratulations girls!
