This weekend's cross country meet was held on the Face of the Sun.
At least that's what it felt like while we stood in the ninety degree heat waiting for the kids to run. I was sweating as much as some of the runners, mostly due to the lack of shade and the baby draped over my chest.
But I guess the heat agrees with Fiver, because he broke six minutes! He ran his half mile in 5:43, and he came in 61st in his group. He was still second to last, but his times have improved each week.
I can hear the theme from Rocky in my head. ("Getting strong now . . .") Next week he'll be 60th.
