Let's Go Pens!!

Not too much to write home about, but figured I'd sneak one in here.

I was at the state track meet on Friday and saw some pretty impressive performances. Our school didn't have anybody qualify for the finals on Saturday other than a 2-miler (but no trials for that). I'll have to check with the coaches who have been there for 25-30 years, but I bet this hasn't happened too often. I guess that's a testament to the program.

Highlights from the meet include Chanelle Price running a 2:02 today (faster than my PR), the North Penn boys 4x800 relay going 7:38, and a little school near where we live (Springdale) having a 4x400 girls team run 3:58 and finish 3rd in the small school classification.

The Penguins start their Stanley Cup final tonight in Detroit. That should be exciting. I remember how great it was when I was in high school and the Pens won back to back cups in 91 & 92 and the Pirates went to the playoffs 1990-1992. Ah, those were the days. I thought sports teams were always that good. But, alas, the Pirates haven't had a meaningful game after July since 1997.

Beth's parents are coming up for the weekend and we're meeting in Uniontown (where her grandparents live). Beth's birthday is Tuesday (don't worry, I already took care of it), so we'll be celebrating that. Monday's the big Memorial Day 5K. I did some swimming Friday and this morning and I'll do a light 30 minute run & striders tomorrow. We'll see how it goes. 18:30's the goal.

Well, off to do some cleaning and watching the Pirates and Pens.
