Panther Circuit, Panther Racing

To be good at any sport you have to train, there's no secret to success, it just takes time. I've become used to that time being from 8-10 in the morning and 4-6 in the afternoon. It was a rude awakening this morning when I went to Panther Circuit. Panther Circuit is a morning workout Tuesdays and Thursdays at WHS that I spent three years of HS going too. Man, I was crazy, I can't believe I did that. So, knowing that it's an excellent, challenging workout, I decided to go to Panther Circuit this morning. PC is 6:15 to 7:15 in the gym. Thursday is a free weight circuit-- 60sec on and 15sec off and I needed to warmup so I ran there from my house. Which meant that I left my house at 5:55AM this morning, which meant that I woke up even EARLIER. Ugh. I have so much respect for people who can get up ridiculously early on a regular basis to train and then go to school/work and then train in the afternoon or evening. So tiring.

Then I got home and had second breakfast and my dad said, "we're going up to Mission Ridge for a short hike" so we do. And we hike up to Lake Clara where the colors are bold: green pines, gray rocks, yellow larches, blue sky, and then take one of my dad's Alternative Routes back to the car, which actually turns out to be quite painless for an Alternative Route.

And then my dad & Granny & I drive down to the Tri-Cities (like the twin cities, but 50% better) to watch my little sister run a cross country race. She does awesomely and absolutely flies by two girls who were pretty far ahead of her in the finishing sprint. Well, my little sister, looks like I'm not the only one in the Valaas family who has a little sprint in her legs.

Don't you mean 1/3rd better? Is that a math question?
