Just got off the phone with my oldest daughter. Daddies are always supposed to make things...
better, to make the hurt go away. I answer the phone and my daughter is sobbing. The best I could do was cry with her.
My grandson was at the Ohio NW Regional track meet running the 1,600 meters, the top four qualify for the Ohio State Track meet next weekend in Columbus. Jack has a killer last lap to finish his race. My daughter said he was positioned perfectly, went up on his toes to pass the only two ahead of him and he got bumped and went down.
He landed on his knee. At this moment he is trying to loosen up his knee to run the 800 to try and make the State meet for the third time, 10th, 11th and 12th grade but it doesn't look good.
Athletics builds character but sometimes that character building can be painful.
