I'm so proud of this kid! His personal record, which decided which heat he ran in, was 11:17. This placed him in the slower heat by one second. This was tough for him because being at the top of the heat meant he had no one with a time that would push him to improve. Yeah... like that stopped him.
He beat him PR by 20 seconds, and got 10:58. He lapped several of the kids in his heat, and best of all... beat 5 of the people's time that were in the FAST heat.
Way proud of you buddy!! You're going to be hard to catch by next year!
