Yessy coming 15th out of 300 competitors is such an achievement! How long was the distance that the race was? Was it the typical cross country race with hills and obstacles like fences?

My name is Evelyn. I'm in 8th grade and I also competed in the race. I got 25th place. The race was 3.1 miles. There was this one hill that seemed forever. We had to go two laps around.

There was this one part that was very muddy. Everyone was cheering for us. I was just happy when the race was over. There was a lot of people vomiting after the race. That was the gross part.

The girls got 6th place and the boys got 9th place. Yessy was the first ever from our team (McDonald County) to get a medal. We were all happy for her. It was also awesome because we could of got free massages and free food and Cendy thought she was in heaven. The best part was when we got to go eat at McDonalds!!!

15th?? That's quite an achievement. Hi Mr. C! I finally got blogger working but it only works from school. That means I won't be commenting as often as usual but I will check back as much as I can!

Evelyn - thanks for filling in the information in that comment - it really helps me understand about the course, and obviously how proud you were of Yessy, to be the first student from your school to get a medal is great but you also did well to get 25th considering there were 300 students! Great job!
