4A District 1 Meet Summary Nov 9, 2008

Well, it’s November--that time of year when you pack a change of clothes, pick up a coffee cake from Thelma’s Bakery, and take that long, long drive to visit those distant cousins that you’ve been reading about in Fl-runners. The District of Death meets the District of Distance.  Take Niceville, for example.  Look for it on a map, and you’ll find it in the lower left corner of the page, in a little box, about halfway between the corners of Alabama and Georgia. (One has to wonder how often they cross the state line on their long training runs.) According to available Plate Tectonics models, that part of the panhandle will some day swivel around, roughly parallel to the Chattahoochee, and end up as a suburb of Dothan, Alabama. So how is it that Niceville and DeLand are in the same district, anyway?
