..very true in sport; very true in life. Stick with it.

our Lauren
is competing at the Beijing 2006 IAAF world junior championships. The dates for this are 15-20 August. Her mother, father, and brother are over there, cheering her on, representing us. Lauren’s first event, a heat of the women’s 400m hurdles, is at 12:40pm on Tue 15 August. The program and results can be found at the IAAF website.

quote "It is one of the strange ironies of this strange life that those who work the hardest, who subject themselves to the strictest discipline, who give up certain pleasurable things in order to achieve a goal, are the happiest people. When you see 20 or 30 line up for a distance race in some meet, don't pity them, don't feel sorry for them. Better envy them instead." - Brutus Hamilton
