The Boy had his cross country last Friday. He ended up finishing mid-pack. It looks like as the distances get longer he will improve ... his extreme tininess(?) won't be such a factor.
That night we were having dinner and The Big Girl was complaining that some of the other schools only send their best players whereas her school give everyone a go so they get thrashed.
The Boy's opinion: It's good when they bring everyone because then those loser people get to have a go.
Yep, political correctness is the order of the day round here.
