Hannah’s First Cross Country Meet

Hannah is able to start competing in some school sports this year and she was excited to give cross country running a try.  She has always been a good runner so I was happy that she wanted to give this a try.  She only had one meet this year and unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend.  Thankfully a couple of other moms cheered Hannah on along with their girls and even snapped a few pictures for me.  Thanks Melanie and Elizabeth!

We’ve had an extremely hot fall so her team only had a few practices as a few were cancelled due to the heat.  It was over 40oC/104oF for most days over a 2 week period so it was just too hot for the kids to practice as their practices were mid-afternoon.

In spite of this, Hannah and the kids at her school did great!  Waiting for her team shirt.


Ready to run!


And she’s off!  They tell me she was in there somewhere! Smile


The next time they caught sight of the girls my girl was leading the heat of over 150 girls!



Unfortunately her strong start came back to cause her trouble when she got a cramp so stopped to walk it out.  She fell well back in the group but still enjoyed her run.  Strong finish!


I’m hoping she give cross country a try again next year.  Time will tell.  What I am excited for her to try is some track & field events but unfortunately that will need to wait until next year as they don’t start track & field until Grade 4.

Great run Hannah!  Mommy is so proud of you and you did great!!


  1. That’s amazing! Great job Hannah!

  2. Woot! Yay, Hannah!
    Maybe to prevent the cramps/shin splints, stretch before the run or apply KT tape before running!

  3. Woo Hoo Hannah! I love to see girls run! I hope she decides to continue. Bri loves running. I've missed reading your blog! Finally trying to catch up!
