Cross Country...literally

Despite excellent planning on the part of Head Coach Klein, we found ourselves late for the bus that would take us to our race. Since the bus only comes once an hour, he found one that would take us half way and then figured we could walk the remaining three stops.

Here we are, following the road.

While we could still hear the street to our left, the sidewalk ended and we followed a trail into the trees.

Walking two of the three stops ended up taking us as much time as waiting for the hourly bus. But it was a good warm-up for arriving at the race.

The first part of the race was a gradual uphill, which was tiring (I walked a bit). The second half was downhill...which was instrumental in my 30:15 time. Respectable for me in a 5k.

Here are two of the girls relaxing after the race.

And a picture of the girls team:

Getting home was another adventure which unfortunately I have no pictures for. Suffice it to say that while we didn't do any walking, there was a bit of waiting involved.
