We had a warm, 80 degree day for Track this year at MACSA!!! There was a wind in the air and so it didn't seem as warm but we all got some tanned skin from being out in it all afternoon! Sherry and I traveled together and I couldn't wait to see Hadassah compete in Long Jump again! Last year she placed second place and she was hoping to get first this year!!!
Hadassah was not feeling well and was home from school the day before blowing her nose, fighting a headache and lying on the couch. She REALLY wanted to go to track ... it's one of the most exciting days of the school year for her!
Waiting till it's her turn to run.
Going hard and fast!
Competing in long jump is something she seen back in sixth grade as a strength of hers. Warming up and taking a few practice jumps is important.
Mike joined us at Messiah College to for the event! Him and I got the jobs of raking after each jump and measuring! :) We didn't mind ... we were there to cheer on Hadassah!
Other girls from school watched her jump!
Practice jump ...
Here we go!
I was thrilled to see she jumped off my camera screen!!! :) She jumped well even though she wasn't feeling good!!! 13 feet, 4 1/2 inches was her best yet!!! Way to go Hadassah!!!
Wow, how would I be if my pony tail were in the air like this!!!???!!! :)
I love a day out like this! I always get teared up when I hear everyone cheering each other on! It reminds me of how it must be in heaven and having the angels and Jesus cheering us Christians on to our finish line!!!
Hadassah was happy and pleased with receiving first place in long jump!!! She was also ready to be back home and rest!!!
Good job to the girls track team for place First Place in their division!!! Wow!!! What a great day!
