365/274 A new PR was set

JD raced again today and set a new PR again! The official time is 18:35.24 and  he missed a varsity spot by less than 2 seconds this time.  

Coach and Mrs. Coach are pulling for him to get his varsity points. Coach and Hubby were positioned just before the last curve in the course and Coach told JD when he ran by that he had to finish in less than a minute to make varsity. I remember Mrs. Coach telling JD that, at the Holly race, he missed varsity by just one tenth of a second and she look pained to have to tell him.

Hubby and I were volunteers and helped out at this race.  We handed out numbers and ribbons to the finishers of the open race  and collected the bib rip off tabs for 3 of the 4 high school races. We laughed because we picked the coldest day so far the volunteer; the wind was awful today.  The highlight of our effort was when one of the girls, after just vomiting, wiped her mouth with her bib tag in her hand and then proceeded to hand it to us.  Luckily, Hubby had his gloves on because of the cold.  No harm done.
