On Your Mark

First dating game challenge completed: Go to a High School Track.

I was initially a little nervous about this challenge because school is ending this week and I had no idea how to go to a high school track without being a total creeper. Then I read about the City of Kissimmee and the City of St. Cloud hosting the annual Hershey's Track and Field Games at one of the high schools here in town. And they needed volunteers!

I skipped yoga class on Saturday morning to register the 8-14-year-olds for their track and field events. A few cute guys were in attendance, but they were the boyfriends/husbands of the mothers. There was one who was absolutely adorable and we became friends for awhile, but he was 3-years-old. So, as far as the dating challenge goes, this challenge wasn't a great success.

However, I had forgetten how much fun track meets are! Some of the parents were nuts, but all in all, it was great to be helping out at such a great event. I got to talking with some of the people in the Parks and Recreation Department. It turns out they have tons of things like this going on all summer, so this may be something I start volunteering for regularly.

No Mr. Right in sight yet, but I'm all about trying new things that I'd never think to do!

That's too cute about the 3 yr old. I'm sure they kids were far more fun than the crazy parents, even though that is really entertaining too!
Miss ya, and can't wait to hear about wk 2.
