Early Saturday morning Renny, Nichole and Walter ran in a fundraising 5k in Webster. Every year the seniors of WGHS raise money for ALS aid and research. Marcel was not allowed to run in a "fun" race the day he was to compete in the District track meet at Kirkwood High School. At the sound of an airhorn the Blume-Knoles started off together. Renny and Walter pulled ahead of Nichole in the first half mile. At some point Renny peeled away from his father.

Renny is playing his second season of the gladiator like game called lacrosse. He plays the position of "middy" which features body checking, constant running, and both offensive and defensive play. Gradually, N & W are learning the rules, which are actually fairly simple, sort of like ice hockey.
Running in his first varsity 800 m race (which was also the last track meet of the season), Marcel blazed to a new personal best time of 2:09.8, an impressive time for a sophomore. M placed second in his heat, serving notice that he may be a force to reckon with in coming years.
