Where does she get it from?

Saturday, 9 May 2015

Miss 12 has always been a naturally good runner, placing in many events at school athletics and cross country carnivals over the years. A few weeks ago she was first in her age group at high school for cross country and last week also became the zone age champion.

Crossing the finish line

So yesterday Miss 12 represented her school zone at the Hunter Regional Cross Country and came an astounding 7th! She missed out on going to state by just one position but is first on the reserve list in case one of the other place getters is unable to attend.

Trying out shirt sizes for state, just in case

But what is most amazing about her performance is that she has never had a day's training in her life. Not a single session.

So now it looks like we are going to enrol her in the local Little Athletics group because this much talent deserves to be nurtured.

And we already feel guilty enough about not having done something before this...
