Joe didn't get to play his baseball game this weekend because he had a race in Stavanger. Siddislopet (the 'o' has a slash through it but can't find a quick way to do it on this blog) is a race around Stokke is 8.2 km or about 5 miles. I told Joe I would just be happy if he finished. He ended up running quite well and finished at 41:30. Not bad! They had nearly 50 middle school and high school kids from ISS there and Joe was in the top 5 of the middle schoolers. The number one finisher for ISS was a ninth grader from France...a buddy of his from basketball season, baseball and now track. He finished in 29 minutes. Pretty good! They hired a professional physical exercise person to warm up the hundreds of runners that were there. She took them through a 25 minute aerobics routine! The music was American music and the ISS kids were up on a hill following her and singing at the tops of their lungs. That was so fun to watch! They all had a great time (despite running 5 miles!)
