Two down, one to go
Well, it happened again. A few months ago Benjamin beat me in a 5K. This time it was Alexander. Not only did he beat me, he beat me soundly. My best time is around 28 minutes. Before Saturday, Alexander's best time was 30:22. That was with Chris or I running with him to pace him. Last week, at his "mile club" at school, Alexander ran along with his two best friends, who are extremely fast. It gave him the confidence to run on his own. He crossed the finish line WAY before me, with an amazing time of 26:38. WOW. Chopping 4 minutes off of your PR is no easy feat. He was third in his age group, and is slated to come in second in the Daytona Beach Grand Prix. Check it out at: http://www.daytonaareagrandprix.com/ Congratulations, Alexander!!!
