Track Meet 2015

Landon loves running track.  It's good for him because he has so much energy to burn and simply loves to run.  I'm not sure if this will be his last year of track since they offer it in school going forward, but it definitely will be the last for the Bears.  I can't believe he will be in middle school this Fall!  He will be attending the better middle school of the two in our district that offers quite a bit for their students.  I can't wait!

Anyway, back to track.  For the last couple of years sitting in the stands was miserably hot.  I was drenched from head to toe after sitting and watching for two hours.  This year was the complete opposite.  It was very windy and cold.  We had to break out our winter gear again.  This weather is crazy here right now!  I asked Landon if he wanted to wear pants and a long sleeved shirt under his t-shirt and he refused.  He gets hot very quickly like his dad.  He doesn't like feeling restricted, especially when playing sports.  He seemed to be okay, but the rest of us were dying.  I took Liam back to the car to warm up before Landon's next race.

Liam and I had a blast.  Sitting up in the nosebleed section was nice.  There was nobody up there, which is very helpful dealing with Liam and his issues.  Dad even made an appearance to watch his baby boy's race!  Aaron got Landon's attention before he took off.  They waved to each other, Aaron watched, and then Landon came running up to his dad and said, "Thanks for coming dad, I really appreciate you being here."  Aaron got choked up, as did I.  I know it's hard on Landon that Aaron works so much.  :(

Landon did very well and helped his team win!  The crowd went wild!!  I think they are talking about having another meet after ISTEP.  We shall see.
