The day wasn't all about Jamin so let me begin by saying this:
We did a bit of school. I attended a staff lunch (Greek feast prepared by Mrs. S). I tried out an elliptical. I picked up meds. Michael worked. Kids received this week's produce. Jared took his hardest mid-term. Please continue to pray for his focus as he attempts tests in the midst of doctor call backs and medical tests. I threatened Jared to take one of his brothers to his next cardiologist appointment or I would call in either Deja or Roy to accompany him. ::snort::
But today - Jamin RAN. We had hoped he'd break the university course record....and he ran well...but it was muddy.... he tripped right at the end so didn't take first - but DID come in second. He almost broke the course record......this is his senior year. Jamin has a great attitude, "all things considered, I'm pretty happy with my race. Couldn't have asked God for much more than a competitive race against one of the best milers in the conference."
I always told him his tendency to OCD was a character strength God would use for His glory. It's paying off with training. He has now finished in the top 10 in every meet this season.
On to conference - 10 days! I think the experts are predicting the team to get 2nd or 3rd in conference.
Proud of his season - and he's running with a training injury - which will be taken care of after the season ends.
Living all of life before the face of God...
