Being a Track Mom!

Brian had his second track meet this week. It was warm until the sun starting setting. He jumped 33.5 on the Triple jump. He didn't place. The first place jump was 39!

He did place 2nd in the 300 m hurdles. His team also placed 3rd in the 400 m relay and the 1600 m relay.
The wind was pretty cold once it got dark. I have learned that the time passes more quickly if I sit near the boys and the coaches. The boys' antics can be quite entertaining!
Ya'll Come Back!


  1. 33.5 sounds pretty impressive to me! I'm not much of a sports spectator unless I know the people who are playing, but I think a track meet would be fun to watch!

  2. I can tell if he looks bored, disappointed or annoyed. Does he ever smile for a photo or is that against teen boy rules?

  3. I believe he thinks it is uncool to smile. He likes to go for the tough guy look!
    The triple jump is measured from the first "hop". It is sort a hop, skip and jump. They measure from the first hop to the landing spot after the jump.

  4. Enjoyed the photos of your son.
    My grandson is going out for track this year also. I hope that I can get to a few of his meets.
    God bless


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
