The promotional towels were a nice touch. Typically, when you daughter’s high school cross country team attends a meet there is at least one parent who is in charge of bring ice cold towels to hand to the runners after they come across the finish line and out the back end of the race chute. The one meet that is out of state, however, works a little differently. With one parking lot that is open to the first 30 team buses that show up, this is one of the largest cross country meets in the midwest. As a result the competition fees are higher than normal and there simply is not room for individual teams to bring in their own comforts like cold, wet towels. The meet hosts themselves, however, gave every runner one of their promotional towels at the finish line.
As luck would have it, the weather at this year’s meet was much cooler than normal, but the cool towels were still a welcome gift at the end of this exhausting and hilly course.
