State Champion in the mile senior year. In college we were team champions in Texoma Conference of the NAIA in Cross-country.
I was the first mile champion in the newly formed Texoma Conference setting the record, it didn't last long. I still have my trophies in a wall bookcase. The ribbons and medals are in a shoe box next to my scrapbook.

The goddess known by many names: Bona Dea, Isis, Aphrodite, Venus and others reincarnates and begins to answer the prayers of lonely people looking for love and meaningful relationships. Her followers share the love she gives them to others and they are attacked by other religions and the government. Some are martyred, but message of love and sharing with others only grows.

It's cool that you won so many ribbons and awards for track and cross country.
WHY WHY WHY DID SHE THROW THE COMIC BOOKS AWAY??? I'm reeling. I may not recover.
I'm very into comic books and the thought of all of those in the trash gets to me. That must have been a shock. You must be so proud of the awards collection!
I couldn't imagine having all my comic books thrown away. Yikes. Congrats on the awards.
Very nice!! I can't imagine my parents pitching my books, but they've done it with other stuff, so I can imagine the heartache.
Thank you Lydia, that was a long time ago.
The lament of many of my generation, Marianne. I was a millionaire, then my mother threw my comic books away.
Thank you Kate. Every time I see a Spiderman movie there's a bit of regret.
Thank you Shari. Nice of you to come by.
Glad to have your sympathy, Megan.
That makes me so sad that your mom threw away your comic books. My uncle's had so many and I loved having them read them to me. Great post!
Morgan it's wonderful that your uncle's read them to you.
I did a fair amount of track and cross-country, but never won any medals for it. I was steady, not fast. Most impressive!
Oh, no! So sorry your mom tossed away those comics. Sounds like she was on a cleaning purge. Thanks for sharing.
My husband collects cameras now - he's a keen amateur photographer. It's an expensive hobby.
Yes it is, Tanith, I inherited mine, but I do have some old ones I replaced with cell phones.
