Friday in Johnson City

Today was the day of the track and field meet. We were there by noon and saw the men’s weight throw and then Paulina threw. We still don’t have the complete results so we are not sure where she finished. We know that of the 8 placewinners 4 of them were from Hastings and two were from Concordia both of them are in Nebraska. One was from Ottawa in Kansas and that coach is a Jamestown graduate. The other was from St. Francis in Illinois.

We got to watch the men’s miler from UJ who just missed the finals, and the women’s 600 runner who did make the finals.



It was a good day and after for a fun time we went to eat at a place recommended to us by a fellow passenger on our flight into Knoxville. It is a BBQ spot and has been around for a long time. It is called the Firehouse and dummy me did not take a picture of the outside.

Paulina’s meal

Paulina and James had the half rack, Adie did to but she had chicken too and I just had a burger but it sure was good. The service was fantastic and everyone was super friendly and oh so fast.
