Shannon’s Cross Country Season gets started.

This past Saturday, 9/3/11 Shannon’s cross country season and team got off to a great start. Xavier Won the Gold, Black, and JV division at the Sole Sports CC Festival. The Xavier coaches are saying that this years cross country team has more depth than any other year. I think there are seven freshman girls that also ran with Go The Distance last year. Shannon finished second in the JV division. Shannon’s friend Lauren (also from GTD) won the JV race and had the 4th overall best time. I am not sure how many schools ran in the meet but there were over 160 girls in the JV race. In the Black and JV races they start the boys one minute ahead of the girls. It is pretty cool seeing the girls and boys run together, seems the boys don’t like being passed by the girls. The meet was held in the morning so the temperature was much better than at Amanda’s meet.

Strong up the Hill.

Got To Go Now!

Amanda gets the CC season started.

Amanda and her Shadow Mountain CC team had their first meet of the year on Wednesday at Kiwanis Park in Tempe. I think to say it was warm would be an understatement of epic proportion as the temperature was right around 110. I missed the start of the race as I was lost driving through the park. I did manage to catch the runners already on the course though.

Welcome to the Molvin Web

I am getting the Molvin web up and running. I am not quite sure yet of the overall direction but my first thought is that it will mainly be a photo site. I am not sure how much blogging I will do. With Facebook and Twitter I don’t really see a need. You never know though.
