ALPINE DAYS-2008






Alyssa and Tyler ran track this year. Tyler mostly did the field events but did run the 400 meter and the 4x400 relay. I was trying to do double duty this day as Dave had to work so I filmed some events and got photos of others. Alyssa has had some trouble with her knees and this last photos really says it all. She ended up limping off the track and they pulled her from her last event. We have an apt. with an orthopedic specialist on Thursday. Hopefully we will get some answers as to what the problem is. In spit of all that, she took second in the 200 and 400 by less then 1 second in each event. As a matter of fact it was by 2 tenths of a second in both events. Pretty close. She took 5th in the 100 and never did run her relay. Tyler took 9th in the 400, 5th in the long jump and his team took 2nd in the 4x400 relay. They both did pretty good.

Good ole track. I sure wish I would have stuck with it. I was pretty good at it. I bet those long legs on both of them are every track coaches dreams!

Looing good, I was not a runner. I got to tired and wanted to sit. Good job on being so athletic Tyler and Alyssa.

Good job Alyssa and Tyler! I wish I would have been a runner, but I decided to be in choir instead. Anyway, hope that knee gets better! Love you guys!
