What a very eventful and exciting weekend we had. Brady had 2 runs this weekend. One for his High School Cross Country team on Saturday. He ran 3 miles with the Varsity team. His coach hasn't posted the time on that one so I have no idea how he did. ???
And on Sunday he ran the Merrell Down & Dirty Mud Run...WOW!!! He was AWESOME!!! He has been looking forward all year to this run. He ran it last year in the 5K category and worked all year to compete in the 10K category and boy did it pay off. We are so proud of him! He is proud of himself as well. Stuck to his goals all year long. He didn't even let his broken wrist slow him down. :)
He place 2nd out of 38 in his age group 13-17 and...
5th out of 960 Overall in the 10K!!!!!
|Here at the start. His group was the second group to take off.|
This is one of the reasons why we are so proud...the first group of 44 to start were
military and public safety personnel and he passed them up.
WOW!!! Amazing right?!
|And they're off!|
|These are the obstacles we get to see from the main area.|
This was new to him this year.
|This obstacle is wet and soapy. Very difficult to do when|
you are exhausted, but at this point there is only one left to do....
And that is to get muddy!!!!!
|His cousin Erica was waiting at the finish line!!|
|Here is Brady all cleaned up. And very happy as you can see...he hardly ever smiles. :)|
|On the podium! 2nd place!!!|
|Here is his award. Congratulations Brady we are so very|
proud of you!!!! <3 <3 <3
|Dad is sooo proud!!! (Mom is too!) We just don't have a pic|
of us yet. They took a professional one of us but I haven't got
the link yet. :)
