 Cross Country News
It surrrree has been awhile since my last post, so let me catch you up to date on my running profile. This summer I ran an assortment of 5k's like The Fenton Payne and Bill Nash races. I also tried something new this year. I ran a 10 mile race in Bell Buckle and got 1st for my division! My cross country season started with a couple of 1.5 and 2 mile races. My season best for 2 miles this year so far is exactly 12:49. I have another race this Saturday so I will TRY and post about that race. It is the big one. MIDSTATE! I have ran an assortment of 2 mile races. Midstate is TOMORROW!

Part 2:Epcot

It defiantly has been a long time since I have posted, but now I'm back. Here we go. We started out early, took the monorail, and then we headed in. We raced 1st to Soarin' a ride that you can smell and here the sounds  of places around the world. We really got lucky because later in the day the ride was closed! After Soarin' we went to Mission Space. That ride was one of my favorites in the park. After Mission Space we went to see the Epcot Ball Ride. It was the same as always for me except at the end you get to design your own future. After that we went to taste different flavored Cokes from around the world. Some were gross but most were good! There was this awesome place we went to that we could design our own roller coaster, and then ride it! That one was another favorite. We also got to design our own video game and we could email it to our own account so we could play it which  featured yourself! After that we went home.

Part 3 is coming soon!,

Walt Disney World Trip part 1 of 3

If you are wondering why I have not been posting for a while, it is because I went to Disney World! It all started at 4:45 A.M in the morning two Mondays ago. We had already packed up and was on the road. We had to drive 12 hours! Having a 5 year old brother does not help, trust me. Anyway, along the way I read, watched a movie, and played D.S. We arrived in the Afternoon-Evening time of the day at our two story condo that someone was letting us borrow for the week. We ate dinner that day at home and when to see the Magic Kingdom Electrical Lights Parade. We also saw fireworks, rode Space Mountain two times, and did the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Search. The castle lit up all different colors. It was very cool. Justus also got a Mickey Mouse light up toy. The next day we woke up to do more rides at Magic Kingdom. We rode Space Mountain 3 more times, rode Splash Mountain,did Tomorrow Land speedway, and did a very scary ride called  It's A Small World. It's A Small World contained dolls that sang a high voice song called It's A Small World After All! I would not ride that if you have older kids. We also rode Dumbo,and the whirling teacups. After that we passed out in our beds and went to sleep at our Condo. Part 2: Epcot will be coming out soon, so keep checking, leave comments, and have fun reading!

My Book and My Website Number 2

     While it is raining here, I'd thought I would share something with you about my own creation. I have created a book that will probably come out on in about a year or so. It is called The Dwarf's Adventure 3 Death Avenger. It is the follow up of books 1 and 2, but book one is not for sale because at the time I did not know about online selling! Anyway, it is 124 pages and is the longest book I have ever written.(book 2 is 20 pages and is 13.00 bucks, according to Blurb, so I would not recommend buying it, because I do not get any money.) So, anyway, you could see sneak peaks of the 3rd book on my other site, www.dwarfsadventure. And on that site random stuff is also posted, but nothing inappropriate! 
Hope all is well with you and your families,

Tips to help win at dodgeball

Hello, I am in the adult dodgeball league for the YMCA. I have some tips that I have learned that I would enjoy sharing with you.... here they are!
1. If you happen not to receive a ball win you race to get a ball, stay back and attempt to let somebody throw
one on the other team.
2. Only catch a ball if you are ready, do not attempt to catch fast balls.
3. The bigger or taller the person, the lower you need to throw.
4. Be confident, if you are, that will boost your game to do better.
5. Remember:  dodging is good, however, it does not help your team at all.6.
6. A good tip is to look at one person when you have a ball and throw at the other.
7. Never stand still. Be alert. People try to catch you off guard, be prepared.
8. Practice at home, if you do, you can prove better on the field.
I hope you enjoy and take my advice seriously on the field. Have a good Wednesday!

The Borodash 2011

 It all started when I woke up on Thanksgiving Day. I got my clothes on and did everything else you probably do in the morning. Then, I got on my tag. I was all ready for the Borodash! I walked outside to wait for my cousins, and it was FREEZING cold. It was also very foggy. When they arrived, we departed to the location. When we got out of the car, it was still freezing cold. In fact, it was so cold I could see precipitation in the air! My eldest cousin, uncle, my dad and me walked to the starting line while the middle cousin, my brother, my sister, and my mom went to cheer us on. There were about 2,400 people their, and did I mention it was freezing cold? I stretched and just like that, the race began. It took a while to push toward the front but I managed. I sped through the one and two mile mark, raced past the third, and it was eerily quiet at that point in the race. Towards the very end, a guy dressed up as Santa Claus patted me on the back. I dashed into the stadium where the finish line was waiting for me. The  4 mile race was over. I ran a 28:47 and got 59TH over all! 4th in my age division. After I ran I rushed into the warm bathroom and thawed my frozen hands. It was a GREAT race but was freezing!
