Alex ran in his first cross-country meet with his new school yesterday. He ran in the Senior Boys 6030m race and came in the top third of the pack of 340 boys. So he felt pretty good about that. He ran 5k races with his US high school team so it’s hard to compare times, but he said that his pace was better in this race than previously, so that’s great.This morning, Michael is off to Japanese school, and Z and Alex are participating in a day of service from 10 am to 2 pm sponsored by Zs company. They are helping out with a crew at one of the the Boys and Girls clubs, doing some painting and repairs. I’m at home, doing my own version of community service…climbing Mount Washmore.
