Wow! Congrats to your daughter Blake! 4th place in the DII National
Championships is awesome! A freshman from UMD finished 7th in the DII
championships and we're all proud of her up here in Duluth. I believe the
UMD women placed 8th as a team which was the highest placing for them in
And, as a proud father I have to mention that our daughter Abby earned her
letter on the high school cross country team this Fall as a 7th grader.
She's very proud and so are we! She had a great time and can't wait to run
c.c again next year. She's skiing cross country this winter and we're
thrilled. She's so much more pleasant to be around when she's active!
Aahhhhh, life with a 12 year old!
Hope you have a wonderful winter!
