Sister Girl is running Cross Country this year for the first time. While not the fastest runner, she's worked hard and has come a long way since the beginning of the season. Her two main goals this season were to earn a medal in a race and to earn a Detroyer medal. The Destroyer medal is given by the coaches. You earn one by "destroying" the goal the coach set for you in that race. As of tonight, she has accomplished both of her goals. She earned a race medal a couple of weeks back and tonight she received the Destroyer medal for a recent race. She has managed to beat her goal in the last 4 races but this particular race she beat it by almost 2 minutes. She was one very happy little girl tonight. She only has one more practice and one more race to go in this season. It has been a treat to watch her set her own goals in this sport. She is not super competitive with the other racers and is always so proud of how the other racers do. Her focus in the race is achieving her own personal goals. She says she wants to keep running Cross Country, so we look forward to what next year has to hold for her. I'm so pleased for her and what's she's accomplished this year.
