Katie raced in the NCAA XC finals in Slippery Rock, Pa this weekend. We were fortunate enough to be able to be there. Her goal was to be an All-American. It was colder then all get out. Snow was flying, the wind was blowing and I'm sure it was well into the teens. My feet were frozen. However, as I raced around the course to catch her at different spots, whistle and try and take a picture, I didn't feel anything put excitement and pride for our #2 child. If she never ran another race, or placed dead last in every one she was in I would still be proud of her. She ran like a champion and accomplished her goal. How blessed we are that God gave us Katie. She is the whole package wrapped up in a compact, petite ball. She is determined, brave, beautiful, strong, hilariously witty and runs like the wind. This blog is for her. She is my hero!
