    1. I ran for 30 feet up the mountain and suffered from mild angina. I definitely could not have kept up with the boys :)

    2. Hahaha you are far too modest my cross country running sis. Btw, Theo remarked that since he reached the summit simultaneously with Matt, he should be awarded the same time. Ahhhhhhhh brothers.. Lol
