In just two weeks he’s gone from a best time of 12:21 for the 1.9 mile race…
To a best time of 11:40!!!
40 seconds improvement.
While watching the race today, several of the female team members were standing near us (near the finish line). As the runners came in, our team was in 1st, 3rd, 5th…and then several more runners started trucking in. As they came into view the girls were saying, “Oh, there’s one of ours. It must be…” And they rattled off another kids name. Once he was in full view they all gasped, “It’s BRANDON!!”
Shocked and thrilled, screaming for him like we were.
He’s now 4th on his team. He’s competing in ALL the meets, where last year he had to sit out because they only let in the top 7 runners.
He’s kicking ass. Competing against himself and winning.
And we couldn’t be more proud.
So expect to keep hearing about it for the next couple of weeks.
(Don’t worry. The season is over by mid- October)
