Perseverance

February 28th, 2017

This last year was a trying year for our son, and in turn, a trying year for his parents.

 

Our son was born to run!

 

Our son’s senior year of high school was difficult for this runner.  The fall  brought a bleeding ulcer during the cross country season.  While he recovered toward the end of the season, he never got back to 100% before the season ended.  During track season the following spring, he suffered an ankle injury which, despite physical therapy, did not seem to  heal completely.

 

He went to UNI on a running scholarship in the fall of 2015.  He would run, and then his ankle injury would flare up again.  After 3 MRI’s in his freshman year of college, physicians in Iowa City discovered the cause of his problems – a torn tendon, an extra tendon, and bone spurs.  He had ankle surgery in May of 2016.

 

Here we are today.  He is running again!  He is running his heart out!  He is working to make up lost time.  His distance medley team just got 3rd place in his conference.  We are so looking forward to continue watching him pursue his academic and athletic dreams!

Seasons

February 16th, 2017

In our home, there has been 4 seasons for many years – track, softball, cross country, and basketball.

 

Tonight was the end of a great girl’s basketball season at Algona High School.  Our girls had an amazing year and have much to be proud of!  They worked extremely hard and played as a team with a 18 and 5 overall record.  Congratulations on a great season!

 

Now we are on to track season…..
