Wednesday was the district meet. Every middle school in the district was involved. Only the top contenders were invited to participate. We had front row seats in the bleachers right next to the finish camera. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Gavin beat his mile time by a few seconds. His 800 time was exactly the same as last week. He said he is invited to the next meet to run the 1600 (or mile). His coach sent an email saying the next meet is even more exclusive. There can only be three students from each grade, gender, and event. I’m not sure if Gavin is still invited to run. I guess we’ll find out.
I love the smile on his face as he uses the last bit of gas left in the tank to sprint across the finish line. No matter what, this boy loves running.
