Friday was a busy day as I prepared to be with NIACC at the regional track and field meet held at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake. I did get out for some miles before we left so ended up with 7 on the day. The evening's events didn't start until 8 P.M. so it was a late night.
Saturday's events started at 10:45 A.M. so I got out to explore the campus a bit and find a coffee shop before the competition began.
|This little coffee shop was a few blocks from campus but had good coffee!|
|There are meeting rooms and shops under the central campus. Entrance at the domed doors beside the road.|

|Most of Iowa lakes are below normal due to drought conditions.|
The athletes ran some good times with quite a few near misses for national qualifications. We did gain the 4 X 800 relay qualifying, however. Some are close enough to consider carding in if they happen to fall short at the last-chance event at St. Olaf next Friday.
4 miles Saturday then out for 7 today so the week totaled 45 miles
