Brenden ROCKS!

Wednesday Aspen and I went to Sugarhouse Park in Salt Lake to watch Brenden run in his first ever state tournament for cross country.  He is only a sophomore, but still has come in 3rd from his team, behind 2 seniors, all year long.  He has continuously improved his time for his races all year.  At region in Ogden last Wednesday (October 15) he got a personal best time of 17:03 and placed 10th overall, receiving a medal for his efforts.

State was Wednesday, and I am not sure who was more nervous for the race:  Brenden or me.  He started off GREAT, and was in the second pack of runners a mile into it.  He finished with a personal best time of 16:58 and beat the kid from his high school that had placed before him all year.  WOW.  I am so excited for Brenden.  He is a great runner, and has loved this sport.  He is going to be a threat for placing in the next two years.

Aspen, Grandpa Frank and I got to watch him race.  It was a great afternoon.  The weather was cool and breezy.

NICE JOB BRENDEN!!!  Love you buddy
