Cross Country Invitational

The high school does a cross country meet for the elementary kids every year. Andrew has wanted to do it for the past few years but the timing has never worked out. This year we made it work and both boys got to participate.

Andrew did really well at the Aquafest run this summer and so I was curious to see how he would do during this run. The top placer in each age group would get a t-shirt and the top 6 would get a place ribbon.

Andrew did great! I am so impressed with his speed. He cut a full minute off of his time from July. And he said the course was longer. He missed the podium by two spots, finishing 8th in his class. Pretty good!

Zane's race started and he ran for all he was worth. He did great and stuck with the pack for the first bit. You could see Zane's smile all the way in the stands. This kid just loves fun, regardless of what it looks like.

Zane did great for his race too. He cut time off his previous run as well. We didn't stick around for his placing but I am confident that he did not make the top 6.

Great job Zane!
