Despite the incessant rain, I feel positive about what is happening. Yesterday, I watched the first track meet at Coginchaug's new track in Durham. It has been a very long 10 years since the kids could have events held on the track. Despite the fact that my kids don’t attend the high school yet, I feel like we can all be proud of this great facility and the future it holds for our kids. I know that when my Go Far kids are ready, this track will be their home. I have seen kids run countless circles around their school-yard in preparation for the time when this track welcomes them. It’s a place that will pave the way to continued health and to many personal victories. It inspires me to continue Go Far despite the amount of work that goes into it. Yesterday, Peter and I watched a local track star run like there were wings on his feet turning corners in a seemingly effortless way. I could envision many of our younger runners doing the same as they grow into their Nikes and Asics. I'll proudly watch them from the grand stands. As said in the great movie, Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come”. The Go Far kids are coming of age and with a resounding YES… they will come! Those that voted yes in Durham and Middlefield to build this track years ago, should stand proud. They have helped build a better future for all of us one step at at a time.
