When I was looking through my photos of last Friday’s high school cross-country meet, one thing really stood out and made me laugh. Or was it stood up?
Hair! It seems like running cross-country really is a hair-raising experience.
Most of the boys sport short hair, while most of the girls corral their long locks in a ponytail.
But even when kept under control, the tresses of some of the girls fly behind them like a flag. Or a sail. Could that be a windstreaming advantage?
As for my younger son, his hair tends to stay in place, because his mean, old mom makes him get it cut every month. But his good friend Cody’s hair?
It’s the reason that hats were invented!
