Rock 'n Run

Paul started official team practices for cross country running this morning. He's excited to be part of a team. But the pressing question in my mind is, how do they punish cross country runners in practice? With other sports, the punishment is usually "Run X laps, all you scurvy dogs!" (well, other words might be employed instead of "scurvy dogs" And "X" is always a variable). But for cross country runners, laps are no big dealio, right? So does the coach say, "Stand still for 15 minutes, all you scurvy dogs!"? Or does he make them do batting practice? Or does he make them "go long" and catch the pigskin?

In other news, Katie has started packing for Utah. She's taking a rock. I told her, "You aren't taking THAT, are you?" and then the little voice in my head reminded me that I took a rock with me when I moved out of the house. And then I smacked the voice in my head. (Yes, I still have the rock)

And a personal shout-out to my Mrs. Wilcox: DITTO.

Good luck to Paul on his running.

If you run and roll, you'll vomit. That is always good punishment. Pack, Katie, Pack.

Question: Why would you (or Katie) take a rock when you moved out? And was it a rock, pebble or a boulder?

Paul sure doesn't take after me. I never enjoyed distance running and I dreaded running the mile every week.

Yes, I second the question about the rock?!? You and your weird family. I'm SO glad we're way more normal...LOL.
