First day of cross country

I woke up at 5:18. I got Maly up at 6 am. Today was supposed to be the first day of cross country practice.

Despite the heavy rain the coaches said they were still going to meet. I drove her all the way to her new high school. Both of our anxieties running high. I didn’t really have the opportunity to watch her meander through the heavy rain to the track. Other parents were behind me, dropping their children off as well.

Just as I was leaving the parking lot the bottom dropped out and it started pouring rain. I drove all the way home and was planning on commiserating by going on a run myself. That’s when she texted me to tell me that practice had been canceled.

Good first day of cross country, kiddo. At least we know how the mornings are going to be for a couple months.
