The beautiful thing about Florida weather is that it rarely rains all day. You can almost always count on an appearance from the sun. But as fate would have it the rains came and never dissipated this weekend in Orlando. We made the trip to catch up with Mike and Katherine Bloemker. Mike brought his cross country teams from Johnson County Community College hoping his squads could catch some good weather and run some fast times.
Mike's men did a remarkable job considering the conditions and finished 3rd in the team race. Poor Mike had to scramble around in the nasty conditions while the Czarina and I hid out in some nearby stands. By the time the women's race got going the rain started to ease up as the course got muddier and muddier. JCCC's women executed some nice pack running and beat their main junior college competitors.
