Festival of Champions

This morning he raced in the Unseeded Boys race and came in 5th place! What I liked best was watching all the boys high-fiving and congratulating each other for a great run. The encouragement and sportsmanship that we witness at cross-country meets is one of the reasons we love this sport!

I submitted this precious memory for my parent memoir in the Yearbook, along with this Senior Photo that we took a couple of weeks ago. It's  surreal...

Metallak North Country Adventure Race

Today he joined a group of other hardy athletes at Mowhawk Falls in Colebrook, New Hampshire where they biked...

ran... 
paddled... 
ran again...
hopped back onto the bike to head off into the woods... 
and once out of the woods... 
paddled again... 
then changed shoes again... 
ran/hiked up the mountain...
and then...  
finally biked to the finish line!
It was an amazing day spent watching these incredible athletes continuing to push through pain, fatigue, and more pain in order to accomplish such a feat of strength! I'm very proud of my man.
