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
