On to Sarah’s first high school track meet, after only a couple of practices.  Sarah ran her second ever 200.  She was in the third of fifteen heats, given that she hadn’t a recorded time.  She rounded the corner on that screen, looking strong and close, got passed just before she came into view, and finished with a 28:37.  In the heat after heat that followed, hardly anyone got close to her.  It was just like the downhill wait.  In the end this little rookie had the eighth best time.  What a fun process.  Sarah was really happy.  The Springville coaches were rubbing their hands together.  This frightens me less, inevitable knee injuries and all, than soccer.
