Lexi had a cross country meet yesterday afternoon. I can only show a couple of pictures because I'm trying not to show her school name or her last name. But, this is right after taking off.....she is the first one with the blond ponytail.
There is a four wheeler that leads them around the course (in case you have never been to one). There were about four other schools participating in this race, and usually up to about 40 kids in each race, grouped by grade. There she is up and around the corner still in first place.
Guess what???? She WON the race....YEA!!! They run a mile and her time was 7 minutes 21 seconds. This is the second cross country meet they had this year, and in the first meet she came in 5th with a time of 7 minutes 30 seconds. She was determined to do better and I would say she did with a first place win!!!
Her first place medal was gold and the rest of the girls that received medals got silver.... Way to go Lexi!!!
I love the back of their shirts, they say:
Don't just wish for it,
WORK FOR IT!!
