Yesterday, we made a road trip down to Marietta to attend the Marietta College football banquet with Corey. It was a little bitter sweet because this was the true end to Corey's football career :( When they were showing the football highlight film, I could see how hard it was on Corey knowing that those pads would never be on his shoulders again. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it! It did turn out to be a good time. Corey recieved his second year letter and was awarded the Joe Deppen - Unsung Hero Award. The coach told everyone about how hard Corey worked, his dedication and his drive never to give up! We were told about his lack of speed but how he would make it up in other areas out on the field, he never missed a practice or a lift and he had told the coaches that he would not leave the field, they would have to drag him off!! Also mentioned was the fact that he not only played CB but he was their place kicker and would have to stay after practice to get his kicking in!! Unheard of in college ball!! All I could think of was, THAT'S MY BOY!!! So.so very proud of him!!! As I look back at the last four years, I have come to realize, that he must have had to work extremely hard, pushing never to give up!!! He will go very far in life, that I am sure of!!!!!
The other good thing that happened was Keith's HS indoor track meet. Loudonville ran at Kent State and did extremely well! I think about everyone who ran either ran a PR or broke a record!! Keith ran the open 400 and ran a PR for indoor,57.7 and ran the second leg in the 4x400 which broke the school indoor record, 3:42.7, placing 3rd and 7th in the state!!!!!
Now for my running, yesterday - 12 miles
Today - Monday - 8.2 miles, lifted weights and swam a mile and a half
