|What happens when I leave my phone in the office - thirty or so random photos.|
|Our course was shaping up.|

Labor Day itself was the second running of the NDurance 5k here in Bardstown put on by my friend (who I coached under for six years) Dan Bradley. My guys ran really well, especially Jarrett who ran right off my shoulder until we hit the track with 300m to go. I managed to out kick the sophomore (he did race two days prior), and the effort was enough to get us across the line in 16:55 and 16:56 respectively - Jarrett's first trip under 17. Things were shaping up.

|Here's some of the Region crew. Boys did it again - back to STATE!|
It's an honor to get to go to the State Championships in any event, and our distance runners were the only ones to reach that pinnacle in any sports in 2012-13 (Boys XC team, one XC girl, two 1600m individuals in track). Once again they proved to be the best student athletes at their respective sport at all of Thomas Nelson High School. They represented TNHS well as they placed 19th out of 26 teams. Our seed was 15th, and our goal was 10th. So, we went four spots in the wrong direction. I'm chalking it up to another growing opportunity and a fantastic season with new runners, new PR's and loftier goals for next year.
